BALPPA Members like to do business with people they know. As a Trade Member you’ll be able to attend BALPPA’s numerous networking events held throughout the year. Our Members find these events extremely effective at getting to know each other. Fixed annual events include a Black Tie Dinner in January, a Parliamentary Lunch in March at the House of Commons, as well as a three day tour/conference in June and October. Throughout the year, subgroups also host meetings on specific topics and events are held around the key trade exhibitions.
Only Trade Members can sponsor events or advertise in the Email Newsletter. These two routes are an excellent way to raise your profile even further and help us keep the costs of events low for Operating Members. As a sponsor, you obtain a presence on all promotional literature ahead of the event, as well as at the event itself.
As a Trade BALPPA member, your details will be added to the trade section of the BALPPA website (viewable by Members and Non Members) and you’ll also be able to submit articles/adverts for our BALPPA Newsletter that comes out three times a year.
The BALPPA logo is a sign of quality, which you can use on your website, within your offices and on your business stationery. If you are a trade specialist, being able to show you are part of BALPPA is a massive endorsement for your business.
Two of our Management Committee are Trade Associate Members and they are always looking for suggestions from Trade Members to take the Committee. To stimulate suggestions and discussion, Trade Associates have at least one meeting each year led by Trade Associate Member Chairman John Davies of Interlink LG. In January 2019 John will hand over the reigns to Terry Monkton of Simworx who will take up the position for two years.
BALPPA provides trade members with numerous benefits. During the first year, 50% of your fee is payable as a joining fee.
