Overview

Attending overseas trade shows can promote your business overseas. Exporters can attend TAP’s selected events, and get financial support to offset some costs.

Attending overseas trade shows can help you:

  • gain essential market knowledge and make new contacts
  • gain experience in attending and getting the most from overseas trade shows
  • get advice and support from trade experts on how to maximise your presence

The Tradeshow Access Programme (TAP) provides grant funding for eligible businesses towards the costs of exhibiting at overseas trade shows.

How the service works

Each year the Department for International Trade (DIT), with the relevant TAPtrade challenge partners, agrees which overseas trade shows they will support UK businesses to attend, with grants. These trade shows include some of the most important events in each sector’s calendar, where the best opportunities exist for UK companies to access. Businesses take part as a group, led by the trade challenge partner for that trade show.

If the TAP 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.
