Get your organisation noticed

Events are a big part of what we do. Some are coordinated from our headquarters whilst others are organised by our regional sections covering the UK, our Far East District Section, our Young Persons’ Network and our Industrial Affiliate section. 

These events are a great way to promote your organisation either by sponsoring, exhibiting or simply attending and networking with the members and other individuals who attend.

Similarly, encouraging your staff to enter the Young Persons’ Paper Competition organised by our Young Persons Network (YPN) is an excellent way to share your professional activities with others and be recognised for the work that you do.
