I am heading to Creativation this week! Here is a little history first. About a year or so ago, Namta and AFCI merged together making one organization – Namta. They took on the trade show name Creativation that was used by AFCI.
Namta is The Association of the art/creative materials industry members. Namta was originally more fine art focused in my opinion whereas AFCI was more craft-focused. I was originally a member of AFCI and am now currently a member of Namta as a content creator.
Namta members are retail sellers, supplier manufacturers, distributors and importers, and independent representatives of art materials products. Creativation is Namta’s yearly trade show. It isn’t open to the public. That is where I come in. I will be sharing all things Creativation on my social channels so you can come along with me to the show.
About the Show:
There are five jam-packed days of Creativation. The show starts with two days of education classes, which I will be attending. And then, three days of the trade show floor, where I will be demoing and attending.
After the first day of classes, I am hosting a dinner gathering for my designer friends. We get together to chat and share a meal. I have collected items for a sway bag from manufacturers. A special thanks to all that donated.
