APPA Member< back
Proudly, since 2002, we have been a member of the Australasian Promotional Products Association (APPA) which is affiliated with the International Federation of Promotional Products Associations (IFPPA).
As such, we have achieved a status within the promotional products industry that assures our clients the highest quality of products, services and creativity.
Our benchmark is promotional excellence and as an APPA member we are bound to uphold a code of conduct and ethics that include;
1. Conducting activities within the highest standard of professionalism, ethics and integrity in dealing with our clients.
2. To ensure all products and services supplied meet agreeable standards of basic safety, quality and timeliness as per our terms and conditions.
3. Submitting quotations clearly stating all costs relative to any job including items such as sales tax, freight, decoration costs, preparations charges and late fees.
4. Our agreement that if concerns arise, our clients are at liberty to raise such concerns with APPA for dispute resolution and mediation. APPA only mediates disputes with clients who conduct business with APPA members. This mutual protection ensures professional standards are upheld.
It is in your interest to deal with an APPA member. We have signed a code of conduct and ethics to be accepted as APPA members and stand by the professionalism required to maintain our membership.
Below are statistics from Australia and New Zealand combined.
Dispute Negotiation:90% of the complaints APPA receive come from companies who have bought promotional products from a NON-APPA member. That says it all, why take the risk!
Of the 2,500 (approx) companies who supply promotional products, only 1 in 4 is an APPA member - a true professional. Don't leave it up to chance - look for the APPA logo.
APPA Members receive pricing discounts available to members ONLY from OS factories and importers making them more competitive than non-APPA members.Research shows if the promotional product malfunctions, recipients connect that experience directly back to the brand, company or event, again don't risk it, afterall, it's your brand out there.
APPA is a guide to cost effective, creatively advanced and reputable companies in the promotional industry.
