Idaho Rec Tech Passport Program


The Idaho Recreation Technology Passport Program is a State and Federal funded program established in 2014 with hopes to expand sales and product awareness for Idaho companies both internationally and domestically while promoting Idaho as an attractive place to do business and for recreational tourism.  In the summer of 2015, Idaho Commerce is organizing a multi-stop tour at the following trade shows.

§ Outdoor Friedrichshafen– Germany – July 2015

§ Outdoor Retailer Summer Market – Salt Lake City – August 2015

State and Federal funds will be used to offset your company costs which include individual booth space & construction/shipping, airfare, hotel, and marketing material.  Booth spaces may be arranged as an Idaho pavilion, or as individual booths at the shows depending on group consensus.

Your cost to participate in the Idaho Rec Tech Passport program including booth space, airfare/travel, hotel and marketing material is projected to be under $3,000 total for both shows.

Space is very limited and companies will be selected based on a first come first serve basis and through an application process.  Successful applicants will also be encouraged to apply for an IMAG grant facilitated by the Small Business Administration to offset costs.

The deadline to apply for the Passport Program is Wednesday January 21st 2015

Please contact Jake Reynolds, (208) 780-5150, immediately if you are interested in learning more about the program and how you can apply.
