Virginia International Trade Show Assistance Program

Virginia companies meet new customers and grow international sales by exhibiting at international trade shows. With Virginia’s Trade Show Assistance Program, eligible companies may be reimbursed for certain expenses incurred through participation in international trade show exhibits.

To be eligible, trade shows must occur overseas, or, if domestic, have a demonstrated international component:


•    16 percent of attendees or exhibitors must be international
•    60 countries must be represented at the trade show


The following trade show expenses may be submitted for reimbursement: stand registration fees (booth space), compulsory fees for exhibitors, and booth design fees.
