This annual, two-day trade show connects wholesale store buyers from across the region with over 150 members of the Made in Montana program. It is the premier opportunity for Made in Montana members to reach wholesale buyers interested in authentic Montana-made products for their stores. 

As an added bonus, Saturday offers a unique opportunity for exhibitors to sell directly to the public at retail prices. Potential customers can see, sample, and purchase products while at the same time learning where they can be found in stores in their area.

The Tradeshow is located annually at the Lewis & Clark County Fairgrounds Exhibit Hall, 98 West Custer Avenue, Helena, MT.
