Promoting your business internationally

Did you know?

In order to support Luxembourgish exporting companies in their international prospecting efforts, the Office du Ducroire (ODL) can grant financial support through a partial financial contribution to promotion and exhibition costs.

Luxembourgish companies, which represent a substantial added value for the Luxembourg economy, are eligible for financial assistance if they meet the following conditions:

  • be a Luxembourg exporting company;
  • be in possession of all the valid authorisations required to carry out their activities; and
  • be financially sound.

The export aid scheme is governed by law and complies with European regulations on state aid for exports.

Financial support can be requested, for example, for:

  • the design of promotional materials (brochures, videos, etc.);
  • translation of promotional material;
  • exhibition at fairs, exhibitions, seminars and conferences;
  • traditional advertising costs;
  • participation in international tenders for countries outside the European Union (EU) and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA); etc.

The financial aid granted may vary between 10 % and 50 % of the costs incurred for the project, without exceeding:

  • the various ceilings set by the ODL's Committee for the Promotion of Luxembourg Exports (Comité pour la promotion des exportations luxembourgeoises - COPEL);
  • the ceiling of EUR 200,000 over a 3-year period.
Companies in the financial sector, insurance, tourism and real estate development are, in principle, not eligible for financial support.

For more information on the conditions for granting support and how to apply, see our explanatory information page on export aid to cover promotion and exhibition costs.
