The BPF has secured funding for British Pavilions representing UK plastics exhibitors at key trade shows in 2015/16. Pictured here is the 2013 pavilion at K Show in Dusseldorf.
The British Plastics Federation has been successful in its application for funding for UK exhibitors at three major upcoming shows in fast-growing markets.
Following submission of bids to UK Trade and Investment on behalf of UK companies, BPF has been granted funding for Plastics and Rubber Indonesia, Plast Eurasia and Plastics and Rubber Vietnam through the Tradeshow Access Programme (TAP).
With an allocated £2,500 per eligible exhibitor available, the funding will cover the entire costs of a stand at the international trade fairs, which have been identified by the BPF specifically following consultations with the UK industry, where companies expressed a keen interest to promote their business in fast-growing markets.
The BPF says at all shows it has secured a “key location” for the British Pavilion and will take care of all arrangements (visa, hotel, promotion, stand construction etc) on behalf of firms. Previous attendees at foreign trade shows have described being in “very good hands” as part of the UK Pavilion, with many generating “an abundance of sales leads” directly from their presence at the shows.
There are a limited number of grants available, so the BPF is advising those interested in participating to contact them now to secure funding and avoid disappointment. For more information, please contact Justyna Elliott at the BPF on 020 7457 5001.
