For Release: February 29, 2012

BUDAPEST: GOOD NEWS! The Association of Professional Recording Services  (APRS) has increased TAP grants to £1,800 for UK exhibitors at AES Budapest. AES executive director Bob Moses reports that the grant is available to any eligible UK company wishing to exhibit at the AES Convention set for April 26-29, 2012 at the Budapest Congress & World Trade Center. Deadline for applications is Friday, 9th March.

If you are not sure if you qualify, please contact Francesca Smith at the APRS directly at: [email protected] or Tel: 01803 868600 and the APRS will go through the process with you. Click on the following link for a copy of the AES Exhibit Space Application and Contract Form: 

Moses also points out that the Association of Professional Recording Services  (APRS) will host a NETWORKING Reception on Friday evening, 27 April to which all UK exhibitors their customers and distributors are invited. With plenty of help from the British Embassy's UKTI's experts in Hungary, the AES will also ensure as many potential clients as possible within Hungary will be invited to join us at the Reception.

We invite all UK-based AES exhibitors to take advantage of these huge benefits. They will allow you to access the relatively untapped markets within Eastern Europe.  Flights and hotel accommodations in Budapest are extremely affordable in comparison to the rest of Europe. The AES has also made an effort to keep stand rates at a minimum to make it a worthwhile package.

We hope to hear from you soon to discuss your application for a TAP grant.
