NAMM has announced the list of music product retailers to be recognized at The Top 100 Dealer Awards.

The annual awards show recognizes the industry’s outstanding music retailers who demonstrate exceptional commitment to their stores, neighborhoods and customers, and share in a vision of creating a more musical world through their local communities.

“At the heart of every music store, there is a story of inspiration, dedication and a pursuit to create a more musical world,” shared Joe Lamond, NAMM President and CEO. “The Top 100 Dealers exemplify a commitment – to their communities, their staff, and the industry to create a space which welcomes and inspires music makers through their products and services.”

The Top 100 Dealers will be honored at an awards gala on Friday, July 14 at the annual Summer NAMM Show at Nashville’s Music City Center. From the Top 100 honorees, seven music retailers will be recognized in “Best Of” categories including: Best Store Turnaround, Best Customer Service, Best Store Design, Best Marketing and Sales Promotion, Best Online Engagement, Best Emerging Dealer/Rookie of the Year, and one recipient will be honored with the Music Makes a Difference award. The coveted Dealer of the Year award will go to one of the recipients in the aforementioned categories.

From a self-submission process, an independent panel of judges numerically rated the Top 100 Dealers across several categories including customer service, music advocacy, store design and promotions. Each submission was scored to determine the Top 100 list, the category awards and the overall Dealer of the Year award.

The Top 100 Dealer awards party will be held in the Karl F. Dean Grand Ballroom at Music City Center during the Summer NAMM show. All Summer NAMM badge holders are invited to attend this evening honoring excellence in music retailing.
