Additional funding for the nursery industry
Published: 01 June, 2012
The Baby Products Association (BPA) is delighted to announce that it has secured additional TAP funding from UKTi for the nursery industry to support exhibitors attending Kind + Jugend this September.
Robert Anslow, BPA’s managing director, comments: “This is very welcome news for companies exhibiting in Cologne this year as early indications were that individual grants had been considerably reduced. Initially the nursery industry was allocated just 11 match-funded grants and this has now been increased to 43 meaning more companies – particularly those which have not received funding previously – will be offered the support they need to open doors to European markets.”
All individual TAP funding grants have now been allocated and recipients will be advised shortly. However, numerous more British companies will benefit from UKTi funding this year as there will be enhanced activities at Kind + Jugend available to all British exhibitors, including a UK Pavilion Directory, enhanced meeting and networking area, plus a British exhibitor networking evening with buyers and members of the press invited. Full details of all activities will be issued in due course.
