The UKTI has confirmed an increase in TAP funding for companies taking part in the BPA's UK Pavilion at Kind und Jugend.
Individual funding has seen an increase to £1,500 per exhibitor at the event in Cologne in September.
The grant will be allocated on a first come first served basis according to the criteria set by the UKTI.
Smaller companies which have not received previous funding will have priority over those which have received grants before.
Adrian Sneyd, UK Pavilion organiser for Cologne, said: "We have currently been allocated 20 TAP funding grants of £1,500 but as we managed to increase this to include all 50 exhibitors last year; we will endeavour to attain the same level of funding for 2013.
"However, the sooner companies book their stand space and get their TAP funding forms back, the better chance that we will be able to secure funding on their behalf."
Space is limited as over 40 stands have already been taken up in the Kind und Jugend UK Pavilion.
