techUK have secured support from the Department of International Trade to run a UK Pavilion within the Eureka Park start-up arena. Eureka Park will host more than 800 startups from 35 countries, up from 600 last year. More than 1,100 companies from across the world have exhibited within Eureka Park since its inception in 2012.

Paul Hide, techUK, said "We are delighted to have received some Government support to allow a combined UK presence at this year's show. techUK will be supporting all of our UK pavilion exhibitors and members at this years show to help them take advantage of exposure and access to a global market place".
