Trade Show Incentive Grant Program

The program encourages Wyoming businesses to promote and sell their Wyoming-made products to statewide, national and international audiences with grants to help offset the costs of the trade events.
The Wyoming Business Council Trade Incentive Program exists to encourage Wyoming businesses promote and sell their products to statewide, national and international audiences.
The Trade Show Incentive Program is a reimbursable grant; and as such, the applicant must pay all expenditures before the grant award can be disbursed. The business shall function independently in performing this activity and shall assume sole responsibility of any debts or liabilities that may be incurred in regard to this trade event. The grant award cannot be assigned.
***This program has a limited amount of funds. Money will be dispersed on a first come, first serve basis.***
