Take part in market visits

Want to get out there and explore new export markets? We’ll help you pay your way.

Our programme of international trade missions and exhibitions takes companies around the world to uncover new opportunities.

For trade visits/missions outside the island of Ireland we can provide up to 50 per cent of the cost of an economy airfare, for one person, and up to £75 per night towards accommodation costs for one person.

For SME’s we can provide up to 50 per cent of the cost of economy travel and up to £75 per night towards accommodation costs for one person for trade visits/events in Great Britain and up to £75 per night towards accommodation for one person for trade visits/events to the Republic of Ireland.

To exhibit on a Northern Ireland Group Stand outside Northern Ireland we can provide up to 50 percent of eligible exhibition costs plus up to 50 percent of the cost of economy travel and accommodation costs of up to £75 per person per night for up to two people travelling.

We can support SME’s taking part in exhibitions outside Northern Ireland, where Invest NI does not have a group stand, the group stand is oversubscribed or the company wishes to exhibit in another hall. We can provide financial support of up to 50 percent toward their eligible stand costs plus up to 50 percent of the cost of economy travel and accommodation costs of up to £75 per person per night for up to two people travelling.

Limits apply in all cases.
