Market Development Exhibition


What is the Trade Development Programme?

Exhibitions are the ideal way to market your goods and services and raise your company's profile. With this in mind, the Trade Development Programme has been developed by the Economic Development Team at Fife Council to help businesses participate or visit exhibitions in a wide range of industry sectors with funding of up to 100% of eligible costs (up to a maximum of £2,000) available for businesses which meet the criteria.


What is the benefit of participating in a group stand?

Through the Trade Development Programme, we organise group stands at major national and international events. Together with other Fife Companies you will receive a range of support services from advice and information to customised training. Benefits of participating in exhibitions together include

  • Fife Council will project manage leaving you to focus on your immediate business
  • You can benefit from workshops which focus on everything from pre-event planning to post show evaluation
  • You will receive both local and national PR support


Does the Trade Development Programme include international exhibitions?

Yes, if you are looking to expand your company internationally, exhibitions could be the perfect opportunity to secure your next big contract. Along with other agencies and partners we will work closely with you to provide advice and support that will help you succeed in the global marketplace.
