la rencontre du savoir-faire artisanal d’excellence.

I feel like I'm going a bit crazy here. Is there a word or two missing in this phrase?

Ce projet inédit célèbre la rencontre du savoir-faire artisanal d’excellence.

Or is it an unusual way of saying "where artisanal expertise meets excellence"?

Thanks for any help!

    Hi,

    You are right, something is missing, we don't know what or who is meeting "le savoir-faire artisanal d’excellence". That's the problem when people let their interns write advertising lines...

    EDIT : I don't have the full context, but it may be a clumsy way to say that visitors or citizens or whatever are meeting ....

    Context is a bit missing indeed but I would translate this way :
    "Through this new project, craftsmen (/tradesmen?) are (/will be) able to share their excellent skill (/know-how/savoir-faire)"
