TAP grant increase for AES Budapest

Applications for Trade Access Programme grants are due in by Friday, 9 March 2012, and have been increased to £1,800 for UK exhibitors at AES Budapest.

The Association of Professional Recording Services (APRS) has increased Trade Access Programme (TAP) grants to £1,800 for UK exhibitors at AES Budapest in April. The deadline for applications is rapidly approaching though – it’s been extended to Friday, 9 March – so interested parties need to act immediately.
The Audio Engineering Societies’ (AES) executive director Bob Moses reports that the grant is available to any eligible UK company wishing to exhibit at the AES Convention set for 26-29 April, 2012 at the Budapest Congress & World Trade Center (pictured). This year’s exhibition will adopt a different format from previous European AES events. Those unsure if they qualify for a grant are urged to contact contact Francesca Smith at the APRS directly at or by phone: +44 18 0386 8600 and the APRS will go through the process with you. To download a copy of the AES Exhibit Space Application and Contract Form, click here. Moses also points out that the APRS will host a networking reception on Friday evening, 27 April, to which all UK exhibitors, their customers, and distributors are invited. With plenty of help from the British Embassy’s UK Trade & Investment’s experts in Hungary, the AES will also ensure as many potential clients as possible within Hungary will be invited to the reception. The APRS invites all UK-based companies considering attending AES as an exhibitor to take advantage of these benefits, and reports that with the grant, exhibiting at AES Budapest could cost very little. For example, a standard 2m x 2m booth, including VAT, costs £948.17 at AES while a 3m x 3m booth is available for £1,422.26 (rates taken on 24 February 2012).
