Business Finland’s trade fair grant for companies

Business Finland offers trade fair grants of up to €30,000 to groups of at least four SMEs who are participating in a major trade fair abroad. These SMEs need to have a true desire to grow and internationalize their business.The grants are awarded for B2B events on the basis of innovativeness and novelty value of the products and services that a given company exhibits at the fair.

Trade fair grants are intended for joint international trade fair projects by SMEs, which:

  • Improve the companies’ internationalization capacity by entering the export markets.
  • Promote the launch of a new export business or open a new market area.
  • Increase exports to old market areas.
  • Diversify the structure of exports.
  • Promote the market entry of enterprises and new innovations, or otherwise foster the internationalization and international competitiveness of companies.
