After the success of GREAT Week Malaysia earlier this month, UKTI are making a final call for applications to attend GREAT Week Mexico in 13-18 October.

Mexico’s creative industries rank fifth amongst the country’s strategic sectors, with Design the most important component, accounting for an incredible 73% of the industry.

GREAT Week Mexico offers these key benefits to UK-based SME's in art and design:

  • Meeting cultural, business and government decision-makers through B2B meetings, site visits and networking events throughout the week
  • Exhibiting your products to major buyers
  • Gaining knowledge and understanding of new markets
  • A bespoke programme with UKTI support and advice throughout
  • Networking with fellow attendees and industry peers to share best practices

Who is it for? 

  • Bespoke design and art companies and galleries
  • Retailers and suppliers in the design sector including textile, furniture, art and home decor
  • Designers, graphic artists

If you qualify as a British-owned and based SME you can also access a Market Access Programme Grant. 

This is a terrific opportunity to access substantial business prospects, take part in Design Week Mexico, the Affordable Art Fair and sell work directly to buyers.
