The UK Association of Online Publishers (AOP) is an industry body representing digital publishing companies that create original, branded, quality content. AOP champions the interests of media owners from diverse backgrounds including newspaper and magazine publishing, TV and radio broadcasting, and pure online media.

Formed in 2002, AOP publishes original research, hosts forums, awards and conferences, covering a range of topics from managing online communities and adapting content for mobile, through to optimising partnership opportunities, SEO best practice, behavioural targeting and audience measurement.

Our research, which is available exclusively to members, includes a monthly Digital Landscape Report, a bi-annual Census of AOP members’ businesses, in addition to other sector-specific projects. Publisher members are granted access to four industry committees, which cover a range of commercial activities, research, B2B and product development. AOP’s committees meet regularly to share knowledge and advice to continually improve their digital businesses. As of 2011, Publisher members are also entitled to free places at our monthly forum events, while Associate (Supplier) members get generous discounts.

Membership also grants companies a range of other event discounts, such as for our annual Awards and Summit, other industry events/training and access to exclusive networking roundtables and dinners throughout the year.
