The UK Association for Online Publishing (AOP) is an industry body representing digital publishing companies that create original, branded, quality content. AOP champions the interests of media owners from diverse backgrounds including newspaper and magazine publishing, TV and radio broadcasting, and pure online media.
Formed in 2002, AOP publishes original research, hosts forums, awards and conferences, covering a range of topics including programmatic advertising, native advertising, the value of data, content models, cross device and mobile specific development, affiliate commerce, video and other key topics. Our research, which is available exclusively to members, includes a monthly Digital Landscape Report, a bi-annual Census of AOP members’ businesses, in addition to other sector-specific projects.
Publisher members are granted access to eight industry groups, which cover commercial, research, B2B, product development, audience development, HR, ad ops and the Journalism advisory council. AOP’s groups meet regularly to share knowledge and advice to continually improve their digital businesses. Publisher members are also entitled to free places at our monthly forum events, while Associate members get generous discounts.
Membership also grants companies a range of other event discounts, such as for our annual Awards and Summit, other industry events/training and access to exclusive networking roundtables and dinners throughout the year.
