Welcome to the Association of Creative & Print Managers in Education
Promoting and advancing best value and practice within the education print and creative environment
Welcome to ACPME. A dynamic network of creative and print managers from the UK Higher and Further Education sectors.
No two institutions are the same. Nor are any two of our member’s units. While the activities and influence of individual ACPME members vary greatly, we share common goals of keeping funds on campus, saving our institutions money and best supporting the core activities of teaching and learning and research.
There’s a tremendous camaraderie that defines our dynamic network. We meet regularly to share insights and to raise awareness of the depth and breadth of our interests. We attend trade shows together, visit each other’s inplants and celebrate successes every year at our Annual Conference.
Perhaps most importantly, we’re there for each other. Issues with suppliers, struggling to write tender evaluation criteria, thinking of offering a new service – you name it… candid help from experienced professionals is only ever an email away.

The highlight of the ACPME calendar
Every year we organise a three-day conference, usually starting the first Monday in June, moving the location around the UK. Typically there are around 20 suppliers who exhibit at the conference to 50–60 delegates. There’s a packed programme of topical presentations including speakers from overseas. The programme allows for ample networking and informal discussion between suppliers and delegates and provides developmental sessions to keep members informed of current trends across design and print.
