A new education and outreach initiative with the National Systems Contractors Association (NSCA) will see the group host a mini-conference, ‘Best Practices in Identifying, Selling and Managing Systems Integration Projects’, at this month’s NAMM Show.

The conference will take place in NAMM’s Hands-On-Training (H.O.T.) Zone area on Thursday 19 January from noon to 6pm.

NSCA’s sessions will include a keynote by NSCA executive director Chuck Wilson customised exclusively for the smaller sound contractors and music retailers who offer system installation and integration support. Attendees of this session will be given information on the areas of greatest opportunity for future work and tips on how to plan for growth.

The event will also feature ‘breakout’ sessions on devising effective sales proposals, the improvement of project estimates and the management of systems projects.

“With more contractors and retailers than ever branching out into systems work, it makes a lot of sense to provide education programs and outreach here at the NAMM Show,” said Wilson. “We hope to share with these companies the true costs associated with doing the type of work and the risk/reward propositions which will make their system installations go smoothly.”
