About The PPA

The PPA has been synonymous with magazines for over 100 years but today our membership is made up of modern media businesses carving out a new future defined by trusted, quality content.

We represent and support almost 250 companies, ranging from consumer magazine publishers to business-to-business data and information providers, customer magazine publishers and smaller independents.

Whether on the page, through a screen, or face-to-face, our members create professional, influential content that resonates with target audiences and drives real action.

As the voice of professional publishers for 100 years, the PPA is committed to ensuring our members have the tools to evolve into dynamic, multi-platform media companies.

All our work is underpinned by the many forums, working groups and committees that form the core of the association, and support the broad spectrum of companies within the UK's publishing sector.
