DIT's Tradeshow Access Programme provides funding in the form of grants for eligible businesses to attend overseas trade shows.
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 trade shows
- advice and support from trade experts
How the service works
The grants are based around the Tradeshow Access Programme calendar of supported events, with an accredited Trade Challenge Partner leading the UK’s involvement at each event. Businesses usually take part as a group, led by the trade challenge partner for that trade show. If the Trade Challenge Partner is a membership-based organisation, there’s no need for participants to become a member to take part in the Tradeshow Access Programme. Members of UKFT may be eligible to apply for TAP grants through UKFT.
TAP grants are available for a select group of international shows.
