The acronym NAMM originally stood for the National Association of Music Merchants, but has evolved from a national entity representing the interests of music products retailers to an international association including both commercial, retail members and affiliates. Therefore, the long form of the name is no longer used, and it is simply known as NAMM, the International Music Products Association.

NAMM Show is one of the largest music product trade shows in the world, its only major competition being the Musikmesse in Frankfurt. It is held every January in Anaheim, California, USA at the Anaheim Convention Center. The January 2008 show had 1,560 exhibitors and a record-breaking 88,100 attendees. The NAMM Show is not open to the general public, only to members of the music trade.

Summer NAMM has been hosted cyclically between Nashville TN, Austin TX and Indianapolis IN during successive years. The smaller summer show is approximately one third the size of the Winter NAMM Show and focuses more on industry meetings and professional development courses than products.
