Native Instruments Announces Departure from Industry Tradeshows
Berlin, Germany (MuseWire) – Native Instruments today announced that it will no longer maintain a booth presence at industry trade shows like the NAMM Show, Musikmesse or AES in the future. The company has decided to instead prioritize online communication channels to engage with customers directly even stronger, and to allocate budgets accordingly.
This shift in priorities is exemplified by the new sophisticated rich-media web site that Native Instruments launched recently, and will be continued through the establishment of further innovative online channels and other means of direct communication in the future.
“Times are changing and we have seen tradeshows become increasingly less relevant for our industry,” says Pablo La Rosa, International Marketing Director at Native Instruments. “By focusing our efforts in online communication and direct-to-customer events, we reach out to today’s musicians and producers in a way that we believe is more efficient for us and more engaging for them.”

Just imagine how much money NI will save! At the same time, how many vendors will follow?

Annoying the new N.I. site won’t work on my iTouch either since their Website is now “Flash or nothing” … grrr …. no fallback to “no Flash enabled.”
…was trying to watch a demo of the new Absynth 5, but couldn’t access it on my iPod Touch via Safari … and no demo video on YouTube (yet, thanks to no trade show visits).
So… score minus-one for accessibility.
