We’d like to hear from you.
Thu, 27 Jul. 2017
The Tradeshow Access Programme provides funding in the form of grants for eligible businesses to attend overseas trade shows. The funding helps your business gain market knowledge, experience in attending and getting the most from overseas tradeshows, and advice and support from trade experts.
What You’ll Get
The Department for International Trade (DIT) can offer grants to eligible businesses taking part in the programme. The grants must be matched by the business’s own expenditure on direct exhibiting costs, for example:
- Exhibition space costs
- Stand costs – including design, construction and stand dressing
Category Current grant levels
Group exhibition (long haul) £2,000
Group exhibition (typical high growth market) £2,500
Grant levels may be subject to change. The trade challenge partner will confirm the level of grant available and inform you about any service or management fee charges before you sign up.
Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam and Indonesia are all on the list as high-growth markets. The list of applicable tradeshows (with links) is below.
