The organisers of the popular British Pavilion at Spielwarenmesse, the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce has confirmed there are now increased grants available.
Funds of up to £1,500 per company will now be available to British exhibitors. This represents a 50 per cent increase on the grants available at the 2013 show.
The number of the grants is not yet confirmed, and it is unlikely that they will be offered to the total number of UK exhibitors - this stood at 163 in 2013.
However, this reinforces the need for companies to apply early. It is not necessary to exhibit within the Pavilion to be eligible for the grant, but a first come, first served system is likely to operate.
In addition, the UKTI has confirmed a grant for a Pavilion at Kids India - which is due to take place in Mumbai from October 24th to 26th. All details are again available from Stuart Whitehill.
Further information on both shows can be obtained from Spielwarenmesse's UK office, PattExpo.
