The “Support for Exhibitions and Seminars Abroad” (SESA) funding covers up to half a company’s stand costs up to £2500. It is available to businesses showing and promoting UK-made goods and who have no other external funding to attend the show.

Although the WMSA is appointed as the SESA group organiser, it stresses that the funding is available to members and non-members.

Xylexpo takes place from May 26 to 30 in Milan.
