The Voice of SME's in Engineering


In 2016, MTA Vietnam attracted 415 exhibitors from 24 countries, 13 Group Pavilions and 12,626 trade visitors over the three day period. 95.9% of visitors came from Vietnam and 4.1% were international so the show is ideal for companies wanting to focus on the Vietnamese market.

The EIA recognises the importance of the growing Vietnam now that it is part of ASEAN, and to encourage more companies to look at this new market, are working with the organisers of the Fair to recruit a group of UK exhibitors to exhibit on the UK Pavilion.

EIA has reserved space and appointed a contractor to build the stands for the UK group pavilion. The cost of a stand on the UK Pavilion will be £350 (SGD 595) per square metre. The price will include space, construction, lighting, furniture and UK signage.

We are pleased to advise that the Department for International Trade have approved funding for the show under the Tradeshow Access Programme (TAP) and eligible UK SME companies will receive a £2,000 grant for exhibiting at the show on the UK Pavilion.

Therefore a stand measuring 9 square metres on the UK Pavilion will now cost £350 x 9 = £3150 less £2,500 = £650 plus the EIA Management Fee of £450 for members and £550 for non members. Other stand sizes are available.

Calculations based on £1 – SGD = 1.7

To assist companies further, the EIA are currently working with Lloyds Bank and will be able to offer UK companies the opportunity to access contact information of local potential buyers of your products. Searches are made through HS numbers, keywords or searched products. Companies can then invite these contacts to their stands at the exhibition. The EIA will give you access to this platform once you signed with the EIA and have committed to the exhibition. There will be no charge for this service.

If you have any queries or require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact Karen Finegold on e-mail: or direct dial: 07815867390.

Cut off date: 28th April 2017
