Please Be Aware - NAMTA does not contract with, or authorize anyone to contact our members regarding hotels for the conference and trade show. Should you be contacted by anyone offering incredible deals for hotels in Dallas, please remember, if it seems too good to be true it probably is. You should never give your credit card information to anyone who contacts you. If you do reserve through one of these companies you probably won't have a reservation when you arrive in Dallas.

Thank you NAMTA members, art educators, and everyone in the art materials industry who helped NAMTA get the word out to the artists who took the 2017 Artists Survey.Thank you to all the artists and students who participated by taking the survey. You spoke directly to the art materials industry with your answers.
The results of the survey will be the 2018 Artists & Art Materials Study. Release date will be announced.

Artists & Art Materials Market Summary has data on 2015 size and growth of the art materials market in the USA and Canada.
Retail Survey Results from 150 art materials retailers in the US and Canada - core financial metrics, growth and product trends, marketing and business best practices, challenges, and feedback for suppliers.

BUSINESS PLAN
is the newest manual in the NAMTA Retail Operations Manual series. Your business plan is not a one-time exercise. While the first time that you create your Business Plan will likely be the most intense, re-reading and tweaking it annually is necessary to keep it relevant and useful. Each year there are likely to be changes to the retail landscape: new niches of retail open up; competition moves in and out of your trade area; art trends change.
