Following this review, support may include one or more of the following:
- Part-funding towards attending a trade fair – ‘exhibitor package’ which can include the cost of the exhibition space, plus anything hired from the venue.
- 2-day research assessment – to help you to identify, scope and access new markets and sector supply chains.
