Events are one of the most effective ways to support companies that are looking for trade opportunities and that are undergoing periods of transition. The DIT calendar of events has some 400 core events and missions each year, including briefings, webinars, workshops, and exhibitions.
Department for International Trade Events Portal
The DIT Events Portal provides a single calendar view of all DIT Events and Missions, and has been developed to provide companies with more detailed information on each event in order to help them decide on the most appropriate event to attend. The calendar can be filtered and searched by sector and/or market.
There are also detailed events websites which include more information about the event and also allow users’ to register for an event.

Trade Show Access Programme
The Trade Show Access Programme provides funding in the form of grants for eligible businesses to attend overseas trade shows. The funding helps business to gain market knowledge, experience in attending and getting the most from overseas trade shows, and advice and support from trade experts. Grants of up to £3000 are available to eligible UK companies for use on exhibition space costs and stand design and construction costs.
