Tradeshow Access Programme (TAP)


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

Find out how the Tradeshow Access Programme (TAP) can help promote your business overseas, and how to apply for financial support.

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.
