The industry is broad and diverse, with businesses operating in specialist markets or have a specialist focus you have already identified where your business excels and where there is potential for continued growth, spanning a huge range of capabilities. Complementing this sector wide approach, the BPIF has the Communities of Interest which supports the development of the industry and individual organisations more specialised needs. The communities provide a bespoke and personalised opportunity to be part of network that aligns with the specialism of your company or your job role.
Communities that are aligned with particular print industry sectors will be called Special Interest Groups/Sector Interest Groups - They provide companies operating in particular sectors with a sector specific network and a platform which drives initiatives, training and technology. They also provide companies with the opportunity to strengthen relationships throughout the supply chain, share, develop knowledge and industry understanding, to help business succeed and to promote and develop the sector. The communities of interest will cover themes that are relevant for the whole industry and these will be called Industry Forums - The forums will aim to provide a hub to discuss relevant industry issues, the future, best practice and identify solutions. They will function as an enhancement of your membership and provide an avenue of innovation, development and growth for the industry by bringing together individuals and companies to be involved in a group or forum that works to further the interests of that sector or interest.
We are a member focused organisation, and this involvement helps us understand industry needs and priorities and develop tools and resources that support business success. Each group or forum will be led by a BPIF representative, directed by a steering group which consists of members, affiliates and other industry bodies. Meetings are held throughout the year to focus on solving problems. Members will network with like-minded managers to discuss the variety of issues of relevance to your particular sector(s) of the industry, learning from the market leaders and sharing experiences.
The BPIF is the printing industries champion. By becoming a member you join a diverse and influential community. We help you solve business problems, connect you to new customers and suppliers and make your voice heard in government.
