ActSmart and ICHF events are working in partnership to help independent retailers and suppliers in the creative sector boost their sales and reduce costs with 50% off Silver ActSmart membership until 30th September 2012!
ActSmart silver membership normally costs £120 per annum but is now available to any creative sector business for just £60 per annum (equivalent to just £5 per month) until the 30th September 2012.
Earlier in the year ICHF events sponsored 50 free Silver memberships– worth over £100 each – available to visitors of CHSI 2012. The promotion was a great success, with all 50 of the sponsored memberships being snapped up within days.
Lesley Allen, from Gwen's Workbox in Amersham was one of the lucky 50 who has already seen the benefit of becoming an ActSmart member - "ActSmart membership is much more cost effective and better suited to my business when compared to my current FSB membership. To start with, Tax Investigation Protection and a Legal Helpline are included for half the cost of my FSB membership!"
In light of the tremendous take up, ICHF Events have decided to continue to support this initiative and sponsor 50% of the price of ActSmart Silver membership, giving ALL creative businesses the chance to benefit from this great membership package for just £5 per month.
AICHF Events are committed to supporting the creative sector in 2012 and beyond by offering opportunities like sponsored ActSmart Silver Memberships.
