Question posted by Gary Newbold, on behalf of English Utopia Ltd in HG1

I am exhibiting in July at a fashion fair in Amsterdam. Are there any grants available that you know of to fund this?

thanks

Grants for exhibiting at overseas tradeshows are often distributed by trade associations on behalf of UK Trade & Investment. The main trade association for the Fashion sector is UK Fashion & Textiles (http://www.ukft.org/ ). You might want to check out their website, or contact them.

If the show is not a major internaitonal tradeshow, it might not be included in the grant funded programme, but you might be able to get some financial assistance by contacting your local regional office of UK Trade & Investment and speaking to an International Trade Advisor about "Solo" grants under the Tradeshow Access Programme. However you should be aware that grants are usually applied for 6 - 10 weeks in advance, so you may have missed the cut-off point to apply. Visit http://www.ukti.gov.uk/export.html?guid=none for more information or to find your local office of UKTI .
