As a sponsor, you have the opportunity to develop stronger relationships with the 135+ professional associations and regulatory bodies that are members of PARN.

Sponsorship provides your company with networking opportunities that can lead to potential business leads. Typically, our sponsors are companies that supply services to professional associations.

Being involved with PARN can help inform your product and service development with the competitive advantage of understanding the needs of the professional body sector.

Our sponsors support us in our mission to raise the profile of issues relating to the professional body sector and our aim to determine and promote good practice.

Current Sponsorship Opportunities


Sector Review

Coming up to its sixth year, our annual Professional Body Sector Review helps define the sector in its own right, focusing on its distinctiveness, challenges and trends.

The Review is distributed by us to all our members, as well as other interested parties and key stakeholders, working from our extensive database of contacts. The publication is also available to order directly from our website.

Sponsoring the Sector Review is the perfect way of demonstrating serious interest for the progress of the professional body sector. You will raise your profile with senior management and decision-makers on a far-reaching scale, both through wide distribution and attending the prestigious launch event in spring.

In recent years we've worked with Redactive, looking at the future of the sector. 

Our sponsorship offer for the 2018 publication is more varied than ever. Choose from three sponsorship packages:

Full sponsorship: Includes your logo on the cover, an article in the Review, representation and recognition at the exclusive launch event attended primarily by Chief Executives, 200 copies for your own distribution and more
Advertisement: A quarter-page advertisement on the inside front cover
Supplier listing: A short description of your organisation in our listings section
