An enterprise may seek preliminary advice from TID on the eligibility of a particular promotion activity for funding support under EMF5.  The enterprise should provide in writing to TID information on the activity in question (including the name of the activity and platform/media6, objective and scope of the activity, target participants, programme details and date of the activity, etc.).  TID will make a preliminary assessment on the eligibility of the activity in question and provide a written response.  However, this preliminary assessment is not an approval for funding support under EMF in relation to the activity.  Any subsequent change in the nature, scope or other arrangements of the activity may affect its eligibility for EMF.  Previous approval for funding support in relation to a particular activity does not guarantee that the same activity will be eligible for funding support in future.  TID will evaluate each activity and application having regard to the prevailing circumstances.

In considering whether an organiser/operator/service provider has good track record, TID will make reference to various factors, including its business nature, size of business (such as number of employees), years of establishment, number of years of experience in organising/operating/providing relevant activities/platforms/services, the nature/type, number and scale of similar activities/platforms/services previously organised/operated/provided, organiser’s/operator’s/service provider’s credibility, feedback of the trade on relevant activities/platforms/services organised/operated/provided and enterprises which have participated in the relevant activities/platforms or used the relevant services before, etc.
