International trade showsupport

service launched for PSSAmembers

The PSSA has just agreed a deal to secure

access for its members to the UKTI sponsored

Tradeshow Access Programme (TAP).

The Tradeshow Access Programme provides

funding in the form of grants for eligible

businesses to attend overseas trade shows which

have been added to the Tradeshow Access

Programme of supported Events.

Through a tie up with UKTI and BSIA we

can now provide access to grants for eligible

businesses taking part in the programme.

The grants must be used by the business on

its own direct exhibiting costs, for example

exhibition space or stand costs (including design,

construction and stand dressing.

The scheme currently facilitates stand space in

UK Pavilions at three major international security


• Security Essen


• Intersec Dubai

Exhibiting as part of a UK Pavilion brings many

benefits which ultimately helps UK exhibitors

to enjoy a more successful, stress-free and

profitable exhibition. As part of a UK Pavilion, UK

exporters promote their products and services

alongside each other at a reduced cost, and

benefit from being located in a prime, central

location on the show floor.

Moreover, exporters benefit from exhibiting

as part of the‘Great Britain brand’which signifies

quality, integrity and innovation, key elements

that the UK’s security industry is renowned for

the world over.

As well as benefiting from prime stand space

and the opportunity to exhibit under the‘Great

Britain brand’, companies exhibiting as part of

the UK Pavilion also gain access to a range of

top class support via the new PSSA link with the

BSIA. This new link helps take the strain out of

booking stand space, acts as the liaison between

exhibitors and the show organisers and provides

a complete‘solution’including stand design,

stand construction and logistic support with the

shipment of goods and products.

Throughout the shows, the BSIA has

representatives on hand on site to deal with

any technical issues so that exhibitors can

concentrate on the things that matter.

If you would like to find out more about the

UK Pavilions, the shows or how you can gain
