For over four decades, Washington DC-based ATA has created economic opportunities for artisan enterprises in more than 45 countries, through capacity building, product development and design, and market linkages.
In partnership with Las Vegas Market, ATA brings this expertise to emerging international entrepreneurs who are entering the U.S. retail market. It gives buyers opportunities to connect with inspiring artisans, brands and products from across the globe.
