Cook, Ruggles & Powell Go To NAMM
The National Association of Music Merchants or NAMM is the premier association for our industy. Anybody who is anybody in music retailing will be in Anaheim this week.
And while Ruggles and Cook have done the rubber chicken circuit many times in the Auto Industry, this will be the first foray for each in the music business.
“All we are looking to do,” says Ruggles, “is meet and greet and take it all in. We’ll be talking mostly to those in the Amplification and Custom Guitar niches but we certainly won’t rule anyone out. The Safe-T-Stand has many partnering opportunities and the NAMM Show is the perfect place to forge new relationships.”
Cook adds, “Ruggles and I have always been productive at these types of events. We don’t take ourselves too seriously but we know that we are here to do a job. These conferences always bring great opportunity and we are eager to expand our network with new friends and new colleagues.”
Safe-T-Stand Co-Founder Caden Powell will be joining as well and it’s a good thing. He brings some authentic musical talent to the Safe-T-Stand team, whereas Cook and Ruggles are still admitted ‘newbies.’
The NAMM Show runs January 24-27 in Anaheim, California.
