Trade Fair Grant

Business Finland is awarding Trade Fair grants to Finnish SMEs with a true desire to grow and internationalize their business.

The grant covers up to 50% of the eligible costs of the project, and up to 30,000€ per trade show can be approved.

In general, they are awarding Trade Fair grants only for B2B events and for groups of at least four SMEs who are participating in a major trade fair in their sector that is held abroad.

Terms and Conditions

  • Your company is an SME registered in Finland.
  • Your company is seeking to grow and internationalize.
  • Your company has a credible basis to run a profitable, long-term export business.
  • Your company has no significant outstanding tax liabilities and/or payment default entries and is in the prepayment register.
  • Your company has sufficient funding to cover the project and other operating costs. When planning self-financing, you should note that our grants are paid in arrears on the basis of actual and paid costs, unless otherwise indicated in the decision.
  • Before your company applies for a Trade Fair grant, you should review the total amount of funding your company or corporation have received that is subject to the de minimis rule.
