HOST MILAN: 2 TAP grants available

CESA has acquired 10 grants of £1500 each for exhibiting UK companies at the Host Milan exhibition on the 18th to 22nd of October 2019. http://host.fieramilano.it/en/

 

Any UK foodservice equipment company that is considering to exhibit at Host Milan and wishes to receive a grant must meet the qualifications of the terms and conditions and submit the grant applications to CESA.

 

The definition of an eligible company is either:

(i)            a SME, or

(ii)           a business or organisation that has

    1. less than 250 employees; and
    2. an annual turnover of between £83,000 and £5 million.

 

The funding is through the Tradeshow Access Programme (TAP). CESA is a DIT Trade Challenge Partner, meaning that it has met the stringent criteria for the support and delivery services that it offers. This is in addition to the added value that it provides to UK businesses looking to develop overseas business.

 

“CESA leads the industry in helping UK exporters” says Steve Goodliff, Export Group chairman. “CESA’s involvement in international shows and the leading UK exhibitions provides significant added value for members and has a proven track record of developing sales.”

 

Please note: There is a change in the terms and conditions of the TAP grants from April 2019.  All eligible companies receiving a TAP grant will be expected to report any Export Wins achieved from the attendance of a TAP supported event. The aim is to help DIT show how grants support business success. The information is confidential and will not be shared in a way that identifies the business individually. CESA will be in contact with you for export win data immediately following the exhibition, six months after the exhibition and one year after the exhibition.
