Funding For International EU-Third Country B2B Events

Organizing international B2B events can be a cost intensive endeavor. However, they are not only paying off for participants but can have a great overall impact on the economy in general. The EASME is aware of this fact and has co-financed many projects with the goal of fostering international business partnerships. Recently they have published yet another tender with the title:

“Organisation of EU-Third Country B2B , C2C and C2B Centred Events at the Occasion of Major International Fairs Inside and Outside the EU”.

The issues that are being addressed with this project are the relatively low exports rates from EU countries to Third Countries. The goal of this tender is

“to support EU businesses, in particular SMEs and clusters, to operate internationally by exploiting business opportunities in regions with strong critical mass of clients and potential business partners”.

If you are a business agency, chamber, or similar type of organization and have expertise in organizing international business matchmaking events, this tender might be right for you. Deadline for proposals is 31st May 2016.
