UK companies wanting to attend the International Woodworking Machinery and Furniture Supply Fair in Atlanta can apply for grant funding through the Association of Suppliers to the Furniture Industry (ASFI).

ASFI has been made an accredited sponsor of the August 26-29 exhibition by the government, which is providing the grant funding. Grants of up to £2,500 are available, covering about half of space and stand costs on approved areas for UK exhibitors booking through ASFI.

A change in rules concerning grants means firms who have received funding in the past can still apply again.
