The Professional Publishers Association (PPA) has announced that Air Business, the UK’s market-leader in global mail, fulfilment, distribution and subscription management has been selected to continue as PPA strategic partner for the 11th consecutive year.

The 11th year of the partnership will see Air Business as the sole sponsor of the PPA Chairman’s Reception, taking place on February 26 as well as Strategic Partner of the PPA Festival and PPA Awards, which have undergone exciting changes in both content and format. They will also be supporting the 30 Under 30 Awards and PPA Independent Publisher Awards this Autumn/Winter.

Barry McIlheney, PPA CEO commented: “I am absolutely delighted to be entering our second decade as partners with Adam Sherman and his team at Air Business.”

He added: “Over the past 10 years of our partnership, they have shown great support for our industry, and are always proactively investing in and supporting the growth of the entire publishing sector. As our members seek to grow their presence in new sectors, Air Business has ensured that they will always meet our evolving needs.”

Air Business has invested hugely in the growth of the publishing sector by evolving their subscription service model and investing in new technologies, as well as investing in a new Head Office and main distribution centre in Hatfield to enable long-term support of their clients.

Adam Sherman, Air Business’ Chief Executive Officer, said:

“A lot has changed in publishing since we first became Strategic Partner in 2010 and we are excited to be supporting publishers as they move into new markets and of course we are thrilled to be continuing our strong partnership with the Barry and his team at the PPA. Over the past year the Group cemented some very positive changes including the move of our Head Office and main distribution centre to ‘The Beacon’ in Hatfield and continuing to invest in and develop our subscriptions service model and systems. What has not changed is our passion and loyalty for the publishing industry, which stays at the heart of everything we do at Air Business.”
