Solutions to Improve Service for Your Members--and Support Your Trade Show Needs

If you're like most of your peers, you're juggling a lot of things--daily operations, trade shows, membership acquisition programs--and you're doing it with less budget and fewer resources.

But rather than focusing on the "less", see what more you can do with UPS:

  • Save staff time with streamlined order processing
  • Improve attendee and exhibitor trade show experience
  • Lower the cost of mailings to existing and prospective members
  • Offer member discounts on UPS shipping and The UPS Store® business services

Increase Membership Value with Shipping and Trade Show Discounts

A well-designed affinity program can provide added incentive for association membership, helping drive new members and boost member retention.

UPS Affinity Programs include: member discounts on UPS package and freight shipping, volume-based discount tiers (the more you ship, the more you save), and association royalties based on member shipping.

In addition, you can designate UPS as your official trade show carrier, enabling your exhibitors to enjoy special group discounts for inbound and outbound shipments.

Our logistics experts are prepared to help you meet shipping deadlines to or from major trade show cities. Whether you're shipping to an advance warehouse or directly to a show site, we can handle it all--from pop-up exhibit crates to large pallets of freight.

Speed Shipment Preparation

Our services help you provide fast and focused fulfillment, so you can ship your new member kits, e-commerce orders, and printed training materials quickly and reliably.

Integrate WorldShip® with your company's existing back-end system and easily access existing customer data, reducing shipment processing times.

WorldShip provides access to all our shipping services and  lets you easily set up Quantum View® e-mail notifications, so you and your customers know where shipments are and when they'll arrive. That means fewer calls to customer service and more time for your staff to focus on priorities.

Simplify Your Returns Process

UPS Returns® helps make a sometimes frustrating process easier. We give you three simple ways to get return shipping labels to your customers, and we also help you manage inbound and outbound returns. That saves you time, allows you to better manage staffing levels, and improves your customer experience.

Reduce Expedited Mail Costs

UPS Mail Innovations® relies on our extensive network and a unique program with the U.S. Postal Service® (USPS) to cut the cost of shipping flat mail, media mail, bound printed matter, and parcels that weigh less than one pound.

Since we perform functions--like labeling and sorting--normally handled by USPS, we're able to pass along reduced rates to you. And if you're shipping internationally, we have similar programs set up with postal authorities around the globe.
