Enterprise Florida offers grants for virtual trade shows to provide another vehicle for the state’s small and medium-sized companies to identify international clients and generate new export opportunities that will contribute to Florida’s economic recovery.
As a direct result of global market disruptions and new technology innovations, traditional brick and mortar international trade shows are being displaced temporarily by virtual trade shows to promote worldwide business opportunities.
Virtual trade shows are low-cost alternatives to traditional trade shows or exhibitions. In many cases, participating companies can select a pre-designed or custom exhibit booth in a 3D virtual format, upload digital or video marketing and promotional materials, and connect with trade show visitors through web chatting options, although formats may vary.
Enterprise Florida’s reimbursable trade grant covers the cost of a virtual trade show, up to $2,500.
Grants must be approved prior to the starting date of the virtual trade show. Please contact your local Enterprise Florida trade representative for a grant application. Click here to view the complete grant criteria, and terms & conditions.
