The PPA is proud of its standing within the publishing industry. Here are some comments from our members.


  • Nicholas Coleridge

    Managing Director, Condé Nast

    I have lost count of the vital things the PPA has done for the publishing industry over the past two decades. Being a member of the PPA assures you a voice in the future and a seat at the table

  • Helenor Gilmour

    Head of Consumer Insight & Brand Development, DC Thomson

    For DC Thomson the benefits of PPA membership are several-fold. Participating in PPA Committees means that our voice is heard and we can contribute to the big discussions. The PPA is also a valuable research resource and partner for our insight and commercial teams. And nothing is better than meeting other members face to face, hearing about their challenges and successes and being inspired by the creativity in our industry.

  • Kevin Costello

    Chief Executive, Haymarket Media Group

    The PPA plays a critical role in representing the industry to government, lobbying on legislative issues or collective bargaining on issues such as Royal Mail pricing and given the ongoing economic turbulence and digital challenges there has never been a greater need to have a strong, unified, professional body representing the industry needs. The PPA also delivers a great roster of events and training and the committees provide an opportunity for our team to meet peers, network, as well as share intelligence and learning.

  • Graham Bond

    Managing Director, Hemming Information Services

    We have been members of the PPA for many years and have always valued their services. Our membership has enabled both the company and our staff to remain in touch with the latest views and thoughts of the industry and has provided an opportunity to share best practice with industry colleagues. The PPA represents our views and concerns at a far higher level that we can manage by ourselves and has succeeded in protecting us from some of the more outlandish proposals of Government and other bodies. And, of course, their networking events and parties alone are almost worth the price of membership!

  • Fraser Allen

    Managing Director, White Light Media

    To succeed in publishing, it's essential to meet regularly with other people in the industry, to bounce ideas around together, to share best practice and to join forces to tackle mutual concerns. The PPA provides the ideal forum for magazine publishers to do this and offers much more besides, including training, market intelligence, promotional activity and lobbying. Furthermore, the new management of style of the PPA is refreshingly member-focused and is providing a strong lead in issues that concern us all. I wouldn’t want to miss out on any of this.

  • Charles Reed

    Group Managing Director, William Reed Business Media

    The PPA is there for all its members, through its various committees or its lobbying on key issues with government. It covers the range of publishers’ concerns, from VAT to Legal Deposit, and it provides a great network for all publishers to come together at such an important time for our industry.
