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 export promotion activities, like trade exhibitions and advertising in trade publications. MEGA SHOW has been accredited as a trade promotion event to qualify for the EMF scheme. All Hong Kong-registered exhibitors are eligible to apply for the funding of the scheme.
The maximum amount of grant for each successful application will be 50% of the total approved expenditures incurred by the applicant or HK$50,000, whichever is the less. The cumulative amount of grant that an SME may obtain from the EMF has been adjusted from HK$150,000 to HK$200,000 with effect from 10 June 2013. The increment aims at encouraging/assisting SMEs to explore new market and new business opportunities. EMF applicants that have attained a cumulative grant amount of HK$150,000 will become eligible for an additional grant of HK$50,000 provided that such additional grant is used for participating in new export promotion activities for exploring new markets.
