Cut off dates for registration:

The dates below are the cut off dates for additional event marketing exposure we can offer UK companies participating on Mega Technology Trade Mission to Malaysia. The level and amount of additional company exposure prior to mission is dependent on the cut-off date you submit your application to participate. The earlier you register the more publicity we are able to generate for your company.

*10th July: For inclusion in mission press launch being hosted by Malaysian Government, and attended by national Malaysia news media.
30th July: For inclusion in wider publicity utilising various bill boards and LCD screens around Malaysia. This may also include any of your promotional videos…subject to approval.
11th August: Inclusion in banners being placed at strategic locations both in Kuala Lumpur and other cities in Malaysia.
18th August: Inclusion in various under bridge suspended banners and large LCD screens in various locations around Kuala Lumpur.
25th August: Ability to have additional branding and images put on your mission stand .
1st September: Final cut off for UK company participation application. This is an early cut-off date due to the high level of visual graphics needed to be produced for both company stand and wider event and venue marketing material.

Once registered and then subsequently accepted onto the mission (usually within 5 days): all further correspondence will be undertaken by commercial officers based at the UK high commission in Malaysia.

There is no charge for participating in this mission, but there will be a charge for any additional graphics or alterations you may want on your stand. (you will be informed of these stand charges once you are accepted onto the mission). As with previous missions, companies are only required to pay for hotel and flights.

There will be travel support of £500 for eligible SMEs from the Northern Powerhouse regions (Yorkshire & Humberside, North East and North West). With a GDP of almost £350bn the Northern Powerhouse economy is larger than those of Taiwan, Sweden or Denmark - equivalent to being the 21st biggest economy in the world. Spanning the north of England, the Northern Powerhouse unites a host of the UK's biggest cities and pools a wealth of world-class expertise and business talent.
