The Advertising Association promotes the rights, roles and responsibilities of advertising. We represent UK advertisers, agencies and brands on behalf of the entire industry, acting as the connection between industry professionals and the politicians and policy-makers.

The Advertising Association focuses on major industry and policy areas that have huge ramifications on UK advertising. This section contains our work around Brexit, HFSS and gambling advertising, data and-privacy, trust, the digital charter and our Industrial Strategy campaigns.

Front Foot is the UK advertising industry’s members’ network. Membership offers a range of exclusive benefits, from early access to Credos research to invitations to networking events. Front Foot members seek to collaboratively find solutions to the biggest issues facing advertising.
