Funding available to exhibit at Seawork Asia 2018

Seawork Asia is one of the fastest growing commercial marine and workboat exhibitions in the Asian region; it takes place in the heart of this expanding industry sector in Shanghai from 6th-8th November 2018. UK companies wishing to exhibit may be eligible to apply for TAP funding up to 2500.

As the world's second largest economy and biggest trading partner for many Asian economies, China is a key market and Seawork Asia provides unique access across the Asian commercial marine and workboat market, offering many exporting opportunities for the Marine sector.

The grants, which are offered by the Department of International Trade (DIT) through their Trade Challenge Partner, British Marine, in partnership with Seawork Asia, are offered on a case by case basis, and there are a very limited number available.

UK companies who choose to exhibit at Seawork Asia will be located in the popular British Pavilion. These stands offer tremendous opportunity for UK organisations as they are in a high-traffic area, near to other national pavilions and organisations, thus helping to provide a steady stream of visitors passing throughout the day.

For further information or to apply for funding, please get in touch with the Seawork Asia sales team on +44 1329 825335 or contact
