Why you should become an APSA member

The Association of Professional Sales Agents is a specialist trade association representing sales agents in sports and associated industries.

Supporting the UK sporting goods trade, APSA members perform a vital service by bringing their professionalism and expertise to the industry and work closely with SGIA member businesses.
APSA is part of the family of trade associations under the FSPA umbrella. APSA members deal directly with SGIA, BGIA and SPE member businesses.

APSA agents cover six main sectors – sport, golf, outdoor, leisurewear, schoolwear and workwear – a cost-effective sales force for sporting brands with excellent links to all retailers. Experienced in the industry, APSA agents subscribe to the APSA Code of Conduct.

But don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what some of our members say:

“As an APSA member I’m proud to belong to the only UK body of professional sales agents covering sport, golf, outdoor, leisurewear, schoolwear and workwear. We all work alone so that sense of community is vital to us. Membership links us together, providing a shared forum and uniting us all”

“APSA membership instantly tells brands and sports suppliers that I’m part of something bigger, an organisation that demands the highest standards of professionalism and adherence to a Code of Conduct. APSA promotes to businesses the clear commercial advantages and peace of mind that comes from hiring an independent APSA sales agent.”

“As sales agents we have very specific insurance needs such as goods-in-transit and stock-in house cover. APSA has negotiated a competitive insurance package which I access through my membership giving me complete peace of mind knowing that all my needs are covered.”

“The regular newsletters I receive are tailored specifically to sports sales agents, often covering changes to Agency Law which I would otherwise have to search for. Alongside the exclusive members-only content on the APSA website, members are kept completely up-to-date with their industry’s news.”

“APSA partner with a wide range of leading experts in their field who offer either free or discounted benefits and services. Members can access a support helpline for business advice covering tax, VAT, payroll, Health & Safety and more and their partner Myerson also provide legal consultation and advice regarding agency disputes.”
