National Association of DJs AGM 2008
This year's NADJ AGM & Trade Show will take place on Sunday 27th April at the National Motorcycle Museum, near the NEC in Birmingham, B92 0EJ. There will be three rooms this year, the loud room, the medium room and the presentation room.
The loud room will contain those exhibitors that make lots of noise e.g. speaker manufacturers, who will be sound-level controlled by NADJ staff and will have a strict rota for demonstrating to the whole room. It is expected the rota will run through twice.
The medium room will contain other manufacturers and retailers who will also have a chance to make short presentations during the afternoon: exhibitors like Denon who will make a little noise but who don't sell speakers and also software suppliers and other DJ retailers.
The presentation room will contain the refreshments area and will host interactive presentations during the afternoon.
There is one slot still to be confirmed but here are those that are:-
World Champion DJ Cutmaster Swift
Who will present a short set demonstrating his skills and a Q&A session followed by an opportunity for visitors to get on the decks with him and pick up some tips and give it a try. Sponsored by DMC.
The guys from DJ Academy will host two presentations covering various subjects including: learning to DJ in different styles and preparing for being self-employed as a DJ. They will also provide information on their range of courses and also a Q&A session.
DJ Licensing - MCPS/PRS
This will be an interactive presentation on the new licence, explaining why it’s necessary, how it works, venue policing etc. A hot topic that will no doubt contain some vigorous debate.
Hearing Protection/Noise at Work Regulations
A presentation by Audio Relief on the issue of hearing for protection for DJs as part of the RNID's 'Don't Lose the Music' campaign. The session will share ways to protect hearing and also explain new regulations which come into force for DJs in April and what must be done to comply.
The doors open to the public at noon and close at 6pm. Entrance is free to NADJ members, £5 for non-members and £3 for concessions (under 16s and pensioners). For those who cannot make it there will be a live internet broadcast throughout the show, see the NADJ web site for link details nearer the day.
