Discounts and Special Offers
Discounts and Special Offers on Industry Services
AIM has secured a great range of special offers and discounts for members in a variety of business areas: CD pressing, industry news, press advertising, royalty packages, bar codes and much more.
Many of these come from our 'Friends of AIM' - associate members who make an important contribution to AIM in return for the opportunity to be part of AIM's independent community. We don't share members' details with these companies, but we do send out a weekly email to members on their behalf with the latest deals or news from Friends of AIM. Look out for these, there are some great deals for members.
AIM has a special deal for members with GS1, who issue bar codes in the UK. Members of AIM can register for bar codes from GS1 for £25 each, and companies with a turnover of under £100,000 can join GS1 UK without having to pay a joining fee under the ‘Unique Music’ Scheme established by AIM, BPI and GS1.
With the use of GS1 UK’s unique numbers, music distributors are able to accurately track record sales through direct and indirect sales channels and pay accurate and timely royalties to artists.
AIM members get a discounted registration rate for just about every industry event in the UK and overseas. The UK events our members can get a discounted rate for include: In The City, The Great Escape, Sound City, MMF / MPA Training Courses and many more. Overseas we offer discounts on: Midem, SXSW, Amsterdam Dance Event, Popkomm, Womex, International Music Summit, Sonar, Iceland Airwaves, Noorderslag and others.
