What supplier members say about AIM

“My team and I have been totally blown away by the support that AIM staff give their members. The yearly conference alone is worth the membership fee, but the added support, advice and promotional opportunities to a company wishing to reach out to museums and heritage sector organisations is like nothing I have experienced previously!”

Harry O’Connor, Heritage Creative

“Being an AIM Associate Member creates an ongoing presence for us with AIM members, reinforced by our Conference sponsorship. It has led to several opportunities for new work and enables us to share learning and experience with the membership. It’s a targeted way for us to reach potential heritage customers that we might otherwise not have access to.”

Steve Prowse, Artelia

“We insure a number of well-known museums and venues across the UK, many of whom are also AIM members, and we have significantly increased our client base thanks in large part to our association with AIM. The AIM team are incredibly supportive of their associate members and I would strongly recommend AIM membership to any organisation wishing to be more involved in the museums sector.”

James Woollam, Managing Director, Hayes Parsons Insurance Brokers
