The Graphics and Print Media Alliance (GPMA)
The Graphics and Print Media Alliance (GPMA) consists of trade associations representing companies operating in the graphics and print media industry supply chain.
Between them, the trade associations represent some 3,471 companies, the majority of which are SMEs, which, combined, in the UK have an annual turnover of £15 billion and employ 106,000 people.
The objective of the GPMA is to represent the interests of companies operating in the printing industry supply chain by:
providing a forum for member associations to discuss issues of common interest and to formulate agreed positions
sharing the expertise and knowledge of the member associations
streamlining and co-ordinating advocacy activities
liaising with other industry associations and organisations
Trade Associations have a crucial role to play in promoting best practice, helping companies become more competitive and formulating effective public policy and delivery. They have tremendous potential to act as the co-ordinated voice of business when talking to government, and great value in terms of quickly disseminating messages about Government policy to their members. Productive engagement between Associations and Government is very important for the policy making process.
