Become a Supporter

We offer a range of packages for companies wishing to get involved with the trade association. Not only does this support the industry as a whole, but it also has a number of benefits for your own brand.

As a unifying entity we take a holistic and inclusive approach to supporters. All manufacturers, resellers, and service providers are welcome to get involved, regardless of their size or market sector. Together the industry is stronger.

We work closely with media organisations and events to inform and educate the public. This ranges from live stage presentations at the NEC Restoration show, to multi-page articles in the UK's best-selling car magazine. As a supporter, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved and work with us. Below is a list of the various different options available and there is a downloadable Media Pack PDF below that.
