GYMI PiPP (Participation in Promotion Programme) therefore is a support initiative designed to reduce the cost barrier and to encourage Great Yarmouth companies to promote and market their products and services. Aimed at small and medium enterprises (SMEs) based within the Borough, the programme can offer:

Training and advice for effective promotion and marketing

50pc grant aid for first time exhibitors to meet exhibiting costs

20pc grant aid for growth for previous exhibitors to help meet exhibition costs

“This new initiative will allow smaller companies the opportunity to exhibit at events that in the past would have been out of reach due to financial restrictions” commented David Stannard, GYMI Coordinator. “By providing support, businesses will have greater scope to promote their products and services within their market which will hopefully lead to new deals and opportunities allowing their company to grow.”

Businesses are required to be members of GYMI to be eligible for funding but they do not have to be exhibiting with GYMI. This allows companies to attend specialist shows that are not currently attended by GYMI.

Membership to GYMI is relatively low and can help your business to effectively show how it fits with supply chains, identify unique business skills and expertise and recognise cross-sectoral technology transfer opportunities.

The GYMI PiPP initiative is being run in conjunction with Performance Plus Partnership and is being funded through the Working Neighbourhoods Fund. For further information, please contact David Stannard on 01493 846197.
