How many Trade Partners can join?

We believe in offering our Members a variety of Trade Partners to work with and as such AIP welcomes three to four suppliers for each category.

Moreover, AIP needs to ensure compliance with the Competition and Markets authority. With a few suppliers in each category Members can consider the merits of each company to best suit their specific requirements. Operators are likely to make choices based on a variety of things with different priorities, for instance: price point, customer service, after sales service, contract terms, delivery dates, availability, location, particular features, product variety, etc.
