July 22, 2019

LAS VEGAS – The team at Timeless Communications is already busy planning the next Parnelli Awards, set for Jan. 17, 2020 at the Anaheim Hilton during Winter NAMM. You know who else is planning for it? An impressive, growing number of forward-thinking companies with a keen eye to the future who have already committed to supporting the one night a year we pause to honor those behind the scenes that make live events happen.

“It’s an exciting time for all of us on the Parnelli production team as we build on last year’s successful show,” said Terry Lowe, Parnelli Awards executive producer and publisher of PLSN and FOH magazines. “We’re especially grateful that so many past nsors are returning to make it all possible. And it’s exciting to see new sponsors come aboard as well. These are all forward-thinking companies who know that receiving a Parnelli Award is the live event’s highest honor.”
