BPMA secures PSI grant funding

The BPMA is able to inform suppliers that the Department of International Trade (DIT) has awarded the trade association with 18 grants of £1,500 for eligible suppliers wishing to exhibit at PSI 2020. BPMA head of education, Daniela Arena said: “I am delighted that the BPMA has yet again secured grant funding of £27,000 for the UK promotional merchandise industry”.

The BPMA is an accredited Trade Challenge Partner for the Department for International Trade’s Tradeshow Access Programme.

Each year we bid for funding to support suppliers and to help them export their products and services with the ultimate objective of increasing the exporting potential of our industry here in the UK.” The £1,500 grants are specifically for the PSI 2020 Trade show in Dusseldorf and are available to eligible SMEs who are primarily new to export or do not have a long history of exporting. The grant can go towards the cost of the stand, exhibition graphics and marketing material. Grants are available to BPMA members and non-members.

She added: “When combined with the packages offered by PSI to exhibit at the show, particularly the first time exhibitor package, this grant makes the much-talked-about PSI show a worthy investment for any supplier looking to build upon their export business.” The BPMA will work with the grant participants to support them in export growth with the build-up to the show and offer support during the show.
