London Economics was commissioned in August 2007 to undertake an impact evaluation of the Tradeshow Access Programme (TAP). The evaluation research involved a firm survey, a stakeholder consultation and a detailed quantitative and econometric analysis of programme impact and additionality. These research strands were then used to formulate a benefit-cost analysis, identify an economic rationale for TAP, and make appropriate policy recommendations.
