    monthly eshots;
  • One full page advertisement a year in the membership publication, Portrait;
  • Opportunity to submit non-sales technical articles to demonstrate technical capabilities, published in Portrait;

  • One delegate place at the annual conference (September) – inclusive of accommodation, food/drinks, entertainment and full delegate access over the 2 days. This is a key industry event, which includes supplier presentations, round table discussions and many many opportunities to network with IT professionals. Details of this year’s event can be found at www.aituk.co.uk;
  • Company logo and blurb/link displayed on the members page of the
    ait website.


To keep the content relevant, preference will be given to Suppliers who can demonstrate (and we can verify) an active involvement with at least one member firm. The AIT may refuse membership for suppliers who can not meet this criteria.

Supplier listing

Provides an entry in the suppliers database of the AIT website. Publicly accessible by members and non members, this provides a concise directory of suppliers wishing to promote their goods or services to the top 50 accountancy firms. As many firms will not take unsolicited calls from suppliers, using this database provides them with access to a concise list of relevent suppliers.

An entry in the supplier listing gives one page summary plus URL Link to the supplier's own webpage where further information can be provided. We strongly recommend that the suppliers create a bespoke landing page for the URL which gives direct links to the most relevant areas of their web site, and also contact information (email addresses, postal address, etc.). The summary can be updated four times during the year.

During 2015/16 the AIT has 35 accountancy firm members. Participation of the members is excellent with a minimum of 25 firms expected to attend each event. All arrangements are made through the website, thereby ensuring high visibility for it’s resources.

Although the target audience is small, it is very highly targeted, and has a far greater active penetration of the target market than any other service.
