Call for Exhibitors & Artisans


As every tourism director in Indian Country knows, arts and artists are an integral part of tourism. The 2015 American Indian Tourism Conference is giving a special emphasis on art created by Native Peoples with a special Art Market featuring works made by American Indian artists. One of the highlights of a visitor's experience is finding a treasure to take home. Whether it is a beautifully burnished pot, intricately woven basket or exquisitely designed piece of jewelry, it is a reminder of their experience and a story they can share with their friends and families.


AIANTA encourages collaboration with public lands agencies, states and travel, tourism and recreation industries through its targeted audience. Share your program or products with our industry at the trade show. Artisan booth fees are only $150, other exhibitor booths are $750. For more information, contact Gail Chehak at or call 505.243.3633. 


The American Indian Tourism conference could not happen without the support of our sponsors and exhibitors. If you are interested in sponsoring, please contact Gail Chehak, our AIANTA Membership and Development Coordinator.
