     Each of our markets offers the opportunity for visibility, expanding your customer base & sales, and meeting other artists.
Giving Back: Each IMI benefits our non-profit Art & Technology partner, Assemble as well as other community, arts, and non-profit organizations. You will often find tables with representatives from the organizations working hard to improve the communities we share.
