Continuing with my last article, here I provide information on the conference, trade show and training opportunities available to church technical ministry staff for the second half of 2018. There are lots of options, and all are worth considering.

Summer NAMM

June 28-30, 2018
Nashville, TN
NAMM is the National Association of Music Merchandisers, and is primarily useful to visit the manufacturers of smaller gear and equipment for the music industry. The NAMM show is targeted towards those selling AVL equipment, it is also open to those working professionally in the AVL field. You can also attend by being invited by a NAMM member. While probably the least helpful event on this list, it’s a chance to meet microphone manufacturers and providers of smaller ticket items like portable audio systems, as well as all sort of musical instruments and associated backline gear such as guitar amplifiers.

CUE Professional Development Conference

Not being held in 2018
Madison, WI
CUE is a professional development conference for ETC users of all skill levels including designers, programmers, educators, and students. This event is held every two years; it’s not offered in 2018 but I have left it on the list to make you aware of it for 2019.

MxU in Boston

August 21, 2018
Boston, MA
A one-day FOH mixing event for the engineer, the musician, and the creative. “We dive deeper into the actual ART of mixing, spending more time comparing our mix methods, discussing why some styles seem to work in a mix…and why some don’t. That means more time listening and watching a mix get crafted in a one-of-a kind setting.
“This day is the ultimate non-conference event—there isn’t anything else like this: an intimate setting and limited seating with top worship audio engineers.”
