Our Sponsors

 The MPA is reliant on the support of our sponsors. Their funding means we can continue to tell the evolving magazine story, demonstrating why magazines are a successful advertising medium.

The relationship we have with our sponsors has evolved to mutually beneficial partnerships. We have a number of projects under development with our sponsors, which will continue to drive the wider industry forward. As these projects reach completion, you will be able to read more here.

Our list of current sponsors (including links to their websites) is below. If you would like to talk about becoming a sponsor of the MPA, we have a number of opportunities available, so please contact us for more information.
