Looking to the future – the IPIA and BAPC join forces

Looking to the future – the IPIA and BAPC join forces

Right at the heart of both the IPIA and BAPC’s philosophies is the provision of the support and assistance their members need to grow and thrive in the current turbulent economic climate.

With this critical mission in mind, the two trade associations have joined forces to present a joint conference on March 19th, 2020, entitled: Where do we go from here?

The day will feature a line-up of high-quality expert speakers who will offer some critical answers to this key question, while also providing an excellent opportunity for focused business networking.

The IPIA membership is made up of trade printers, OEMs, sector suppliers and professional print buyers, while the BAPC membership is likewise comprised of OEM’s and sector suppliers, as well as business-to-consumer printers and service providers.

Brendan Perring, General Manager of IPIA, explained: “We understand that our members need support to help them efficiently manage and grow their businesses and the things that they find helpful and the information they need is echoed by the needs of the BAPC membership, so it makes sense to work in collaboration.

“We want to share many of our initiatives with a wider audience, and having known and worked with Sidney Bobb and the BAPC during my previous role at Print Monthly, I reached out to him to discuss how we might link the two associations more closely.”

Sidney Bobb BAPC Chairman is equally enthusiastic about what this partnership means for his membership. He said: “The effort and focus that both groups put into achieving an outstanding service for their members makes this a natural fit.

“Our first collaboration, the Spring conference in March is set to be a highlight of the print industry calendar this year.  We have speakers who will be both entertaining and thought provoking, while offering many useful business insights about the current business climate.”

The conference is being held at The Shendish Manor Hotel and Golf course on the 19th of March 2020. A content-rich daytime conference is followed by a dinner in honour of Sidney Bobb and those who stay overnight can also enjoy a round of golf on the following day.
