A marketplace for business and enterprise. The Stationers' Company is a community of like-minded executives leading today's £75bn Communications and Content industries.
Corporate membership offers great benefits to those industry-leading companies which have the ability and vision to support the educational and charitable work of the Stationers’ Company and where motivated people from around the UK and beyond come together.
The Stationers' Company offers something no single trade association or professional institution can match - the broadest and most diverse range of members. In addition, no hotel, restaurant or meeting room can equal the impact made by Stationers Hall (and its contents) which makes a superb venue for conferences and corporate entertaining.
We work with companies of significant presence in the Communications and Content industries who wish to be associated with the aims and objectives of the Stationers' Company. Corporate Membership provides an opportunity for these businesses to mark their presence in, and commitment to, the industry, support its heritage and participate in its future.
During the period of membership, the CEO and two other named senior executives are appointed 'Associate Liverymen' of the Company and a further two as Associate Freemen. As such these executives enjoy all the privileges of individual Liverymen and Freemen (accept that they may not be elected to Court and are not eligible to vote at City of London Common Halls).
Wider benefits include:
Provides an opportunity to influence the themes of, and participate in, industry-related events
Acknowledgement on the Company’s literature, the website and on the main staircase in the Hall
Two of the most important aspects of The Company’s aims are its charitable and educational activities. Through The Stationers’ Foundation, The Company is able to provide welcome support for those connected to the industry now or in previous times that are in hardship or in need of help. The Foundation also encourages the influx of new talent to the industry through a range of education-based initiatives at a local and national level. For example, the Stationers are sponsors of the Shine School Media Awards which are designed to encourage team working by pupils to produce a school magazine, newspaper, newsletter, digital edition or website. Corporate Members are able to utilise the Stationers’ Company initiatives as a channel for their charitable activities.
“From a business perspective, Corporate Membership of the Stationers’ Company provides Heidelberg with access to interesting and informative events and the Hall is an impressive venue for both the UK and overseas visitors. Personally, I am proud to be a Liveryman and it is a privilege to meet and network with my peers across the whole content and communications supply chain. It provides convivial entertainments but also has an important charitable role and remains relevant to the trades it represents.’’
