WELCOME TO ALLIED TRADE ASSOCIATION
The ATA was formed in the late 1950's by a small group of exhibitors serving our industry. The idea was to have an organized body that could work with AALAS National regarding the needs of exhibitors exhibiting at national meetings. The idea was immediately embraced by AALAS and a fruitful relationship between the ATA and AALAS organizations was born. Over the years, many innovations for national meetings have been implemented, with the result that the exhibit hall at AALAS meetings today is the best in the world. Most exhibitors marketing nationally attend, demonstrating up-to-the minute equipment, products, and services to all those interested.
ATA has partnered with the Laboratory Animal Management Association (LAMA) in presenting an annual educational meeting focused on the bond between laboratory managers and their commercial partners.
The mission of the Allied Trade Association is to advance and protect the business interest of its membership to and for the benefit of the Laboratory Animal Science Community.
