Dear MDA Member,

The MUSIC DISTRIBUTORS ASSOCIATION invites you to be an exhibitor at its annual “Show & Tell” Day on Tuesday, January 19, 2016, now at the exciting Hilton Anaheim next to the convention center and all the action of the 2016 Winter NAMM Show, with lower registration fees and membership dues!

MDA Shark

MDA’s Show & Tell Day is a one-day, private table-top show of supplier member companies displaying exclusively for MDA distributor-buyer members. This event is a powerful opportunity to network and transact commerce one-on-one in a friendly, focused environment. Plus there are great opportunities for social interaction throughout the day and during a business-casual closing reception.

New for 2016! MDA Shark Tank! From 4:30-5:30 PM, we will announce three Best in Show products selected during the day by “secret shoppers.” The manufacturer representatives will then have a maximum five minutes to pitch their product to a panel of MDA distributor members, who will offer feedback about the product and the pitch. The winner, selected by the distributor panel, will receive a guaranteed distribution deal from one of our panelist companies.

Benefits for Show & Tell exhibitors include:

  • Pre-show email blasts featuring lists of exhibitors-to-date to increase interest and attendance.
  • Pre- and post-event attendee and exhibitor lists and/or labels upon request.
  • A “focus group” environment in which to display product for customer response.
  • Networking at a business-casual cocktail reception at the close of the day.
  • Sponsorship opportunities available.

Now is the time to reserve your table(s) for the 2016 Show & Tell event. Space is limited, and has sold out in previous years. Exhibit space is being offered on a first-come, first-served basis. MDA’s Show & Tell Day is a great place to get a head start on your 2016 NAMM Winter Show experience. If you have questions regarding membership and exhibits,are interested in being a sponsor or you want to refer a company for membership in the association, contact Madeleine Crouch at MDA headquarters, 972/233-9107, ext. 204, or email
