NEW FOR 2019 – ALL INCLUSIVE PACKAGE!  This year we’re combining the ACPME Annual Conference and ‘Pages’ advertising.  See below for details.

Exhibit and sponsor the ACPME Annual Conference including the ACPME Creative & Print Awards
Carden Park, Cheshire, 2–5 June 2019 

The ACPME Annual Conference is a unique opportunity for your company to engage with heads of service, print managers and their key operational staff in one location. You will meet these people not just at a stand, you will interact with them informally at lunchtime, during evening dinners and socialise with them over the three days.

Our Board works hard to encourage members of the group to attend the ACPME conference by discussing relevant topics, organising key speakers and planning a full social calendar. As a supplier you contribute to the tone of the conference and you are guaranteed a very high level of interaction with the members. This is achieved in various ways from location of the stands, members collecting labels for the prize draw and at the evening events when you will see the members on an informal basis.

Exhibition spaces at Carden Park will be sold ‘off plan’
Please contact ACPME Administrator 01527 893675 admin@acpme.ac.uk early to book your pitch.

‘It’s a great chance for us to meet decision makers, and other important key people from the university print sector and show them all the latest material and equipment developments. These events have allowed us to develop and grow our business within this market sector by offering advice and support in relation to our range of Roland digital printing equipment and our associated printing materials and inks.

A great event that in our opinion is a ‘not to be missed’ yearly event.’

Joe Bartnicki, Grafityp

and get advertising in ‘Pages’, our flagship magazine – distributed to 1,200 UK HE/FE creative and print staff*

‘Pages’ offers the largest and most comprehensive coverage of UK HE/FE in-house design studios and print units. It’s published three times a year, in Summer (after ACPME Annual Conference), early December and March, reaching managers who are responsible for purchasing, budgets and recruitment, as well their creative & print teams who want better tools and your latest innovations. Each edition contains ACPME highlights and articles about ACPME members’ units – discussing topical issues such as their equipment and future plans.

Advertising in ’Pages’ will help your company be the name we’re talking about.

For  more about ‘Pages’ see here.

  • Silver package does not include adverts in ‘Pages’. Advertising available separately.

‘Pages is an extraordinary in-house magazine from content, through to design and finish. It is always delightfully-crafted and Antalis have been proud to be on-board since day one. It is always a great showcase for our different cover and text materials and a vehicle to inform the HE/FE sectors about Antalis’ ranges, news, training opportunities, equipment and environmental commitments.’

Les Jones, Antalis

2019 ACPME conference packages to suit all budgets

ACPME is a voluntary not-for-profit private company that exists to support creative and print managers working in the Higher and Further Education sectors by providing networking and training opportunities. It relies on sponsorship to help deliver its annual agenda. Sponsorship packages for 2019 are listed below and include the opportunity to become a Sponsor of ACPME for 12 months (including our website).

Our flagship event is the ACPME Annual Conference and the Creative and Print Awards Dinner. Sponsorship is sought to help cover the cost of providing this event and to enable us to publish our magazine ‘Pages’ three times a year.

We’ve changed to this package model because some of you have told us that you’d rather sponsor and advertise  in one lump than have to bid for marketing budget throughout the year.

Sponsorship is available in several tiers and is available on a ’first come first served’ basis.

Please note that there are ONLY SEVEN PLATINUM sponsorship packages available.
