As a not for profit organisation, all income is for the benefit of Members via the  improvement of services, provision of information, grants and facilitation/promotion of training (grant funded wherever possible).

The Association promotes its Members via the website; social media channels; quarterly newsletter and a variety of professional and social events, both in the UK and overseas.

The Association uses its group purchasing power to facilitate discounts on exhibitions, market research, insurance etc.

The Association is a Department of Trade Trade Challenge Partner for various exhibitions around the world, enabling eligible participating UK companies achieve grant funding. We also partner with other Associations, helping Members benefit from grants at their discounted Member Management fees.

The Association’s free of charge Business Advisory Helpline, run by Croners, is particularly useful to small companies who would normally have to pay for advice on HR, Commercial/Legal matters, Health & Safety.

The Association communicates with Members via e-groups, disseminating information, statistics, export leads on a regular, if not daily basis.

Do not underestimate the benefits of networking in business. Being proactive about building relationships is often perceived as a personal skill, but it’s far more. It’s an organisational competence. A large and diverse network of contacts will increase the sales of your company, whilst saving time and money.  Go to our consolidated Events Calendar to see what events we are hosting, as well as the wider global industry, to ensure our members are well connected.
