NYS Events: Solutions Fairs
MEP Sponsored Regional Solutions Fairs Showcase Resources for New York State Entrepreneurs
Empire State Development (ESD) and its Division of Science, Technology and Innovation (NYSTAR), in collaboration with National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) have hosted Solutions Fairs in New York City, Ithaca, Newburgh, and Lake Placid.The Solutions Fairs are half-day workshops designed to provide small and medium size manufacturers information about the State’s technology and business resources. Perhaps more importantly, manufacturers meet one-on-one with representatives of each resource in one morning. In this way a number of contacts can be made and recommendations received. Resources include the six Centers of Excellence and fifteen Centers for Advanced Technology as well as the region’s RTDC (Regional Technology Development Center) each of which offers MEP services. The NYS Science & Technology Law Center at Syracuse University as well as the Pollution Prevention Institute at RIT
