About the IPA

The IPA is one of the world's pre-eminent trade bodies for marketing communications agencies. We have over 270 of the UK’s brightest and best agencies in membership, from a broad range of disciplines, who between them handle an estimated 85 per cent of all UK advertising spend.

Our mission is straightforward: to promote the value of our agencies in membership. We do this in two ways: firstly, by acting as a spokesman and representing our members on issues of common concern; and secondly, by contributing to their professional operation via our range of advisory, information and training services
