  • Receive the ATALM Seal of Approval: ATALM carefully selects exhibitors through a thorough vetting process. This ensures that only Exhibitors whose products and services are directly relevant to the needs and interests of Native cultural institutions are allowed to exhibit. The vetting process looks at various factors including cultural sensitivity, relevance, and impact of the products offered.
  • Access a Niche Market: ATALM conferences provide Exhibitors with direct access to a specialized market that is difficult to reach through other channels. Attendees often have specific needs that are different from those of general cultural institutions, thereby offering Exhibitors a unique business opportunity. 
  • Establish Credibility and Trust: By participating in an esteemed event like ATALM, Exhibitors can build credibility and trust within the tribal community. Demonstrating understanding and respect for tribal cultures and the specific challenges these institutions face can help Exhibitors establish long-term relationships. 
  • Participate in Quality Interactions: The number of exhibitor spots is intentionally limited to keep the conference focused and to allow for more meaningful interactions between exhibitors and attendees. This limitation enhances the value of each exhibitor’s presence and prevents the event from becoming overly commercial. 
  • Network with Decision Makers: Attendees are thought leaders, influencers, and decision-makers in the field of tribal cultural preservation. Networking with these individuals can open doors to new collaborations, partnerships, and projects. 
  • Expand Visibility: Exhibiting at ATALM enhances an Exhibitor’s visibility within a community that highly values trust and proven dedication to cultural preservation. This visibility can translate into brand recognition and loyalty, which are crucial for success in niche markets. 
  • Support Cultural Sustainability: By participating in ATALM, Exhibitors not only promote their products but also contribute to the broader goal of preserving and promoting Indigenous culture. This alignment with cultural and educational missions can enhance an Exhibitor’s image as a socially responsible business. 
  • Achieve a Competitive Advantage: Being present at a venue that is key for tribal cultural institutions provides a competitive edge, establishing a presence in the market before competitors might recognize its potential.  
  • Enjoy Quality Time with Attendees: The ATALM2024 Exhibit Hall features high-level activities to drive attendees into the area, including a beverage station, refreshment breaks, raffle drawings, and programming. 
  • Maximize your Marketing Dollars: ATALM keeps its Exhibitor fees far below the standard market rates with non-profit rates starting at $600 and commercial rates starting at $750.
