It’s That Man Again – Andertons makes 2019 NAMM Top 100 Dealers list

Guildford’s Andertons Music once again features in the annual NAMM Top 100 Dealer Awards list. It is the only UK retailer to make the shortlist, which includes music shops from around the world. Andertons has previously won a NAMM Dealer Of The Year Award in 2018 (being the first non-US retailer to win) and awards for ‘best online engagement’ in 2017 and 2018.

Now in its ninth year and held during the Summer NAMM (18-20 July) in Nashville: ‘The annual awards honor retailers who demonstrate exceptional commitment to their stores, neighborhoods, and customers, and share in a vision of creating a more musical world through their local communities.’ NAMM says.

‘NAMM retail members are at the forefront of creating more music makers and in my opinion, are the heartbeat of our industry in communities around the world,’ says Joe Lamond, NAMM President and CEO. ‘We look forward to an exciting evening in Nashville to honor and celebrate the Top 100 Dealers and to learn the secrets of how they are adapting to the changing retail environment and succeeding in the marketplace.’

NAMM explains that each Top 100 Dealer submission was evaluated for effectiveness in marketing, customer engagement and innovation in retail by a panel of independent judges. ‘The panel has also made a selection for several “Best of” category winners, including two new categories: the “Innovation Award” and “Best Community Retail Store.”  The event’s new “Top 100 Customers’ Choice Award” encourages fans and customers of the nominated store to vote online at: TopDealer.NAMM.Org. Other categories include “Best Customer Service;” “Best Store Design;” “Best Marketing and Sales Promotion;” “Best Online Engagement;” and the “Music Makes a Difference Award.” From the winners of these categories, one store will be recognized with the coveted “Dealer of the Year” Award’.

The Top 100 Awards will be held on Friday, July 19 inside Music City Center’s Davidson Ballroom starting at 6:00 p.m. Country Music Television’s on-air personality Katie Cook will host the awards.
