A new term for NMK Academy
UAE: The NMK Academy returns in April and May for its sixth iteration, covering six of the manufacturers that the distributor represents over the course of seven seminars.
The first session takes place on 26 April with a focus on Clear-Com, followed by a Shure Pro session over the two day period of 30 April and 1 May and a Shure System seminar from 2 to 3 May. Roland solutions will be explored on 8 May, with Cloud in the spotlight the next day. NMK Acadmey 6.0 concludes with William Sound on 10 May and Smaart from 14 to 16 May.
‘We have quite a few new products and we’re entering new business segments,’ explained Dino Drimakis. ‘People are getting smarter and technology is more cost effective, but there’s many more events, especially with the Middle East becoming more culturally accepted. So, we’re starting to see more requirements come out.’
Mr Drimakis went on to discuss what attendees can expect from the upcoming academy. ‘There’s interaction between users, manufacturers as well as ourselves as we get to know what products are required for the market and developing skills,’ he said. ‘For previous editions, we’ve had people from Africa, the GCC and even India. We talk to them about hands-on experiences and it helps participants to understand the difficulties that they face. We make it interactive so that everyone joins the discussion and create a community-building type of experience.’
