STEP funds will pay for the cost of booth space and construction of the trade show pavilion. Stipends may also be available on select shows for eligible expenses (i.e., shipping costs or travel for one employee ). All coordination of the booth will be made by IDC. Companies will submit competitive applications to be selected for participation. Generally, 4-8 companies will be selected for each pavilion.
