Joint trade show booths enable SMEs access to new markets. With low investment costs, companies can analyze the competition and make new contacts. German companies are eligible to receive funding from the federal and state governments for their participation at trade shows.
We, Berlin Partner for Business and Technology, the Berlin economic development agency, offer consulting for all trade show funding and organizational matters. On behalf of Berlin’s government, we organize informational and joint booths at international shows in Germany and abroad.
