Wednesday, November 23, 2016 - Each year, leading music instrument industry trade magazine Music Inc Magazine honors retailers, suppliers, and products that transcend music retail standards through the Music Inc Magazine Excellence Awards. This year, Reverb.com was selected as the "Company of the Year," marking the first time in the Excellence Awards' 26-year history that the award - historically known as the "Retailer of the Year" award - was given to a non-retailer.
"Music Inc's Company of the Year, online gear marketplace Reverb.com, is one of the biggest online successes of 2016. Growing steadily since its founding in 2013, Reverb sees more than eight million monthly visitors with its projected sales expected to reach $245 million for 2016," Editor Katie Kailus said in the December issue.
"It's not just a user-friendly and dealer-friendly interface that keeps gear junkies coming back for more. The site also gives them the tools they need to become successful musicians, a "Learn to Play" video page and a comprehensive music news feed."
