Exporting

Get funding to attend trade shows

Overview

Attending international trade shows is an excellent way of growing your export business. UKTI’s Tradeshow Access Programme (TAP) provides grant support for eligible SME firms to attend trade shows overseas.

Are you eligible?

SMEs can apply for grants of £1,000, £1,400 and £1,800 to exhibit at overseas trade shows as part of a group, led by an Accredited Trade Organisation (ATO), such as Scottish Development International or UKTI.

What's involved?

Exhibiting at international trade shows is an excellent way of testing export markets, establishing contacts and securing sales.

Sometimes it can be difficult to know which event will provide the most benefit for your company and to take advantage of the great opportunities that trade shows offer.

We can put you in touch with UKTI’s Trade Access Programme (TAP) which can help your company make the most of international trade events to build and develop your export potential.
