The German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi) will also promote the participation of young innovative companies in productronica 2009 by means of the joint stand “Made in Germany”. The objective of this program is to make it easier for young German companies to attend leading international trade fairs and therefore strengthen Germany's position as an innovation location. One of the preconditions for receiving financial support from the Ministry is that the companies must have their head office and business operations in Germany. Other preconditions include a workforce of fewer than 50 employees and a maximum annual balance sheet total or a maximum annual turnover of €10 million. The companies may not have been actively involved on the market for more than 10 years when productronica 2009 starts.

Any company satisfying these preconditions will receive financial assistance of up to €7,500. The registration form for the trade fair and the application for financial assistance must be submitted at the latest eight weeks before the start of the trade fair. Interested parties can also find additional information about the joint stand “Made in Germany” on the productronica web site.
