The Carlsbad-based National Association of Music Merchants' annual show is expected to draw more than 96,000 people to the convention center with an estimated $91.5 million economic impact to the area.

NAMM serves as a venue for musicians, manufacturers, retailers and sales representatives to gather and see the latest music products.
