About PPA Business

We represent companies in the global business information economy - companies that help customers make better, faster, smarter decisions in the information age.


The industry is built up of deeply-trusted, high-value brands that are integral to specific professional communities, and today we operate across a wide range of channels, including online, data and print subscriptions, workflow tools, live events, digital and mobile products and marketing solutions.


Our activities are driven by the PPA Business Board, which includes representatives from the UK's leading business and information publishers. In addition, we have working groups and committees that are made up of relevant professionals from within PPA membership.

The PPA Business Information Government and Regulatory Affairs Committee (BIGRAC) informs and guides the PPA Public Affairs agenda both domestically and in Europe. Significant areas of policy with which BIGRAC engages include copyright and the digital single market, data protection, tax including VAT on digital publications, and piracy.
