•  Going Virtual

Traditionally, Namta's Art Materials World is a tradeshow that takes place in a host city for 3 days each year. Namta Supplier members set up beautiful, colorful booths filled with samples of the fabulous art supplies they manufacture and distribute. Namta member Retail and Online Stores, Buying Distributors, Art Schools, Subscription Box Companies, and Paint Party-Instructional-Hobby locations come to the show to see what is new, and have the opportunity to place orders.

With the introduction of Covid in 2020 and your health, safety and finances in mind, we will pivot for 2021, bringing two tradeshows together -  Art Materials World and Creativation+  from March 15-19th. We are so excited to transform our traditional in-person trade show into a virtual experience to safely bring together and celebrate the art materials industry, and increase visibility with the addition of the creative community.

While there is no denying we will miss seeing you all in person, we do see some benefits to going virtual? The virtual event experience eliminates exhibiting expenses incurred from shipping, material handling and drayage, and booth design and construction - for all attendees you save on employee travel, lodging,entertainment and meals, while still offering you the opportunity to have safe access to an Art Materials World trade show floor - plus Creativation+ !!!
