Scottish pavilion

As in previous years, companies will be given the opportunity to exhibit on the pavilion on an "exhibitor pod". Our pavilion will form part of a significant UK presence at Arab Health and will be located in Hall 2 of the convention centre. Pods are limited in number with 8 available in total and can be secured on a first come first served basis. The cost of a pod this year will be £4200 inclusive of VAT.

We also welcome companies who want to "walk the show" and they are welcome to use the pavilion as a meeting point or for hosting meetings.

TAP Funding

TAP Funding worth £2000 per company is currently available from the Department for International Trade, but grants are limited in number and not guaranteed. The TAP grant form will be sent separately once your application to join the pavilion has been accepted.
