To help give you a flavour of the NAMM experience, we asked our very own Shorn Rah, to spend some time hanging out in the bar after the show, a task he took to with relish.
At the massive and plush Hilton, right next to the convention centre, come 6pm, what seems like the entire show floor plus some interesting guests descend to the cavernous bar and lobby area to network, unwind and of course have a drink or two.
