"The Made in Montana Marketplace is a prime opportunity for producers of Made in Montana products to gain immediate and widespread exposure to wholesale buyers," said Dore Schwinden, Director of the Montana Department of Commerce. "In 2010 the Marketplace sold out and exhibitors were on a wait list to get in – it’s popular because it works."
The deadline for the next round of grant applications will be announced in June 2011. For information, contact the Montana Office of Tourism, 406-841-2870.
The emphasis of the program is on projects that lead to marketable
products or processes.

"My advice to new governors is if they see me getting off a plane in their state, they need to have me arrested," Mr. Schweitzer said. "Because I’m coming to get their jobs."
Schweitzer said he’ll use any contacts he makes through the Council of State Governments or any other organization to try to build the Montana economy.

"The 2010 TIIP grant funds are re-investing Montana’s tourism tax dollars into the improvement of key tourism facilities. These upgrades will draw visitors in and keep them here longer – spending money in Montana’s main street businesses," said Dore Schwinden, Director of the Montana Department of Commerce.
