is a showcase of Idaho Manufacturing Companies and the products they make!

Due to the circumstances of this crazy 2020, we have had to postpone our October 2020 Made Here Expo and Job Fair. We hope to reschedule for Spring or Fall of 2020. Stay tuned! In the meantime, to learn more about manufacturing and available jobs, visit our main site.

The Made Here Expo, presented by the Idaho Manufacturing Alliance (formerly SWIMA), is an event held annually in October to celebrate National Manufacturing Day and Idaho Manufacturing Month. Check back to this page for the next Made Here Expo.

While we did not be meeting in person this year for our annual Made Here event, we hosted the inaugural Coolest Thing Made in Idaho virtual contest. This contest promoted products that are made in Idaho and allowed consumers near and far to vote on what they believe is the Coolest Thing Made in Idaho. To learn more about contest rules and nominated products, visit The Coolest Thing Made in Idaho.

Free & Open to the Public!

The dates for our next Made Here Expo are not defined, check back for updates.
