Namta's sponsorship opportunities help your company get the attention it deserves. Sponsor one of the following for extra attention at the premier fine art and creative materials event! All sponsors will be promoted on Conference signage and in show literature and the Event Mobile App! 

Mobile App 
NEW Mobile App Design coming for 2020

The Event Mobile App is a show favorite of attendees who use the popular app constantly – both before and during the conference and trade show – to create their personalized “My Show” lists, view detailed conference information, see who is exhibiting and enjoy the best that Chicago has to offer. All App sponsors will be featured on rotating banner ads, have a landing page, direct link back to their website, be given a daily alert sent to all attendees, an enhanced exhibitor listing and have their logo on show signage. Co-sponsorships are just $1,000.

Tote Bags
The ever popular tote bag will return to Namta's Art Materials World 2020. Put your company name on the item every buyer at the show will be carrying – both on the show floor and off. An opportunity with longevity, buyers use these totes long after the Trade Show.


Thank you Bob Ross Incorporated for sponsoring the 2020 Tote Bags.

Charging Station
Your customers will be thanking you for this sponsorship which will be centrally located at the Chicago show with the Namta Booth. Whether it's their iPhone, Droid or iPad everyone will get a charge out of this sponsorship which is available for $3,500. Sponsors will be permitted to place promotional items at the station. Sponsors are responsible for providing their own promotional items.

Lanyards for Badge Holders
Want your company’s logo to really stand out? Take advantage of this opportunity to put your company’s name around the neck of every Namta buyer for $3,000. The Namta Badge Holder Lanyard sponsorship is an imprint opportunity with shelf life. You’ll not only see it at future NAMTA shows, but at other trade shows as well. Only one sponsor logo will be permitted on Badge Holder. Imprinted Badge Holder Lanyards will be distributed to all Namta buyers.
