The SME Export Marketing Fund (EMF)
is a special subsidy scheme, offered by the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administration Region (HKSAR), which aims at assisting Hong Kong-based small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in expanding their businesses through active participation in promotion activities, like trade exhibitions and advertising in trade publications. This show has been accredited as a trade promotion event to qualify for the EMF scheme. All qualified Hong Kong exhibitors are eligible to apply for the funding of the scheme.
Effective from 30 April 2021, the funding scope of SME Export Marketing Fund (EMF) has been expanded to cover large-scale exhibitions targeting the local market as well as online exhibitions and the eligibility criteria has been relaxed to cover non-SMEs, for a period of two years. The maximum amount of grant for each successful application will be 50% of the total approved expenditures incurred by the applicant or HK$100,000, whichever is the less and the cumulative amount of grant that an Enterprise may obtain from the EMF is HK$800,000. The increment aims at encouraging and assisting SMEs to explore more new market and new business opportunities.
