Grants of $2,000 are available to support up to 50 Victorian-based businesses to join the trade mission to Hong Kong Business of Design Week 2018.
Running from 3–8 December 2018, Business of Design Week (BODW) is one of Asia’s leading annual design, branding and innovation events, bringing together designers, business leaders and brands from around the world.
Each year, BODW features a different international partner city or country - Melbourne is the BODW partner city for 2018. This is an important opportunity for Victorian designers, design consultancies and businesses to connect to Hong Kong, mainland China and other international markets.
BODW travel grants will assist Victorian businesses with meeting the costs of defined travel and accommodation expenses. In addition to funding, as a member of the trade mission, companies may also have access to a range of additional benefits such as discounted conference registration, cultural awareness training by Asialink Business and business matching services.
To be eligible for a grant, your company must be a Victorian business that has been operating profitably for a minimum of 2 years. Companies with a gross annual income of at least $500,000 in the last financial year and those that are export ready will be prioritised.
Applications for Hong Kong BoDW grants close on 15 August 2018.
