Increase in grants for members of
British exhibitor group

Zoomark 2009, Bologna

Thursday 7- Sunday 10 May 2009

PetQuip is keen to help British firms take advantage of the weak pound to boost their exports in Europe, but we also recognise that the cost of participating in trade fairs abroad has risen correspondingly. To help offset that increase for the British exhibitor group at Zoomark International 2009, we have negotiated with the show organiser, UK Trade & Investment and GBH Exhibition Forwarding, to minimise the impact of the strengthened euro. We are delighted to announce that:

  • UK Trade & Investment has agreed to increase the grant levels for Zoomark International to £1,400 per eligible exhibitor.

  • The show organiser has permitted us to offer stands as small as 2m x 2m. One or two larger stands are also still available in the British pavilion.

  • GBH Exhibition Forwarding has devised a ‘pod’ rate of £92 which covers the cost of sending a small consignment (no more than 0.5 cubic metre) from its depot in Sheffield direct to exhibitors’ stands at Zoomark.

  • PetQuip’s comprehensive stand package, together with the increase in grant funding at this fair, means that PetQuip members could be exhibiting for a net cost as low as £93* and non members as low as £243*. And, unless you need extra display equipment, the only additional costs should be your flight, accommodation and subsistence.

    *Plus VAT which applies to the management fee

If you are interested in taking part, we urge you to submit your application as quickly as possible as the number of funded places is strictly limited.
