Export Support

Export Support

We at the MTA understand how important it is to get your message out there both UK wide and overseas. We work alongside the Department for International Trade to promote export and inward investment to global business. We therefore attend many industry shows to both support our members as well as encourage the growth of the MTA through membership and MACH.

We will help your company to locate government funding to support exhibitions. We have an established support office in Russia and a wide range of contacts to help you do business.  We also provide access to pavilions at major international exhibitions.

As a Trade Challenge Partner the MTA works with Government to signpost members to the right overseas help for them.

Below are useful links for Members looking for support or export advice.
