Aim: To support exportation in the following forms:

* Increasing the visibility of Turkish companies and introducing the products of these companies, ensuring export and favorability in the foreign market.
The mentioned support covers the expenditures made by the following, through the state and the related institution:

In order to benefit from the participation support to foreign fairs, it is necessary to apply to relevant and competent authorities by following the related decisions and regulations.

An additional 30 working days will be given to ensure that the missing information and documents are completed, provided that the application is made within three months after the end date of the fair.
If the deficiencies are not completed within these 30 days, the application file is removed from the transaction.
Exhibitions and individual participations in international fair organizations are supported by considering the size of the exhibitor’s stand area in square meters.
The amount of support is determined separately for each fair for the international fair organizations. This amount can be determined separately for each fair or for each country and/or sector on the basis of sectoral international fairs in which individual participation is supported.
