This is the only conference and trade event dedicated exclusively to fine art materials and the people who produce and sell them. Art Materials World is open only to qualified retailers who sell art materials to the end user. The International Art Materials Association's mission is to provide its art/creative materials industry members with the products, services and information they need to grow and prosper. The 60-year-old organization's international membership includes retailers, suppliers, sales reps and associates. Together through their support of NAMTA, the association is recognized as a leader and unifying force in the support, sustainability and advocacy of art and the art/creative materials business. NAMTA brings these executives together at its annual trade show and conference - Art Materials World.
