APS Events and Media

Established in

About us

aps Events & Media specialise in international event management and the creation of digital media, predominantly in the healthcare sector. We also regularly host pan-national virtual meetings that can seamlessly link international clients, all controlled from our base in Cheadle.

The aps culture is focused on people, it’s based on strong relationships and added value and what’s helped us to build a formidable reputation over three decades and double in size over the last five years.

The ethos started within our Manchester studio in 1982 is just as relevant today as it ever was; passionate, creative people working together to produce outstanding experiences through technology. From our beginnings as a sound recording studio in central Manchester to developing a full event management service, we’re driven to support our clients exactly where they need it.

From our HQ at the historical Abney Hall in leafy Cheshire, our 54 team members are proud of our core values:

• Passion 

• Expertise

• Innovation

• Collaboration

• Customer service

Key to our success is that every member of staff enjoys their work. aps has always been a company owned and run by people who work in it, for the benefit of all who work in it. People who allow their passion and enthusiasm for what they do shine through to our clients - building long-standing relationships that grow stronger year on year.

What defines us

Passion runs deep at aps! A passion for people. For solving their problems. For technology. A passion for getting the job done as well as it can possibly be done and working together

Expertise - When it comes to technical production and project planning, there will usually be a best way to do something - it’s our job to find it, to unlock it

Innovation - Our smart thinking and consultation level service means that clients often turn to us for creative input and problem solving; our creative thinking and generosity in sharing it has seen many healthcare brands turn to us to elevate their events

Collaboration – We collaborate with our global network of AV partners, clients and colleagues alike. We like to talk and there’s nothing better than sharing experiences internally through honest and open company meetings, information sharing sessions as well as offering employees opportunities to get on board with new initiatives and join focus groups

Customer service - Our outstanding customer service is really the sum of core values – a natural consequence of consistently delivering outstanding Expertise, Collaboration, Innovation and Passion.

The sum of our core values is ensuring our employees enjoy what they do. From the outset they are embedded into the culture by taking part in inductions across every team so they can really get the know the people behind the company.

What inspires us


We feel it’s important to celebrate success and ensure the wellbeing of our employees. We understand the importance of getting together outside the office so from team meals, a lunchtime game of frisbee or a companywide team building event; a company social is never too far away. Our office surroundings offer an excellent working environment and a place to go for a quiet moment in the parkland and we hold mindfulness workshops, offer gym discounts and private healthcare to help look after the health of our employees.


We understand it’s the small things that mean a lot – whether it’s a round of drinks, office ice creams on those hot days, an extra days holiday for Christmas shopping or a personal email from a manager, we like to ensure our employees feel appreciated throughout the year.

Our Responsibilities & Contributions

Quick to acknowledge our privilege, we take our CSR very seriously and work hard to minimise any negative impacts of our work on the planet and to maximise our social and environmental contributions. From recycling and minimising the amount of printing we do and paper we use, to tracking and trying to mitigate our C02 footprint with our carbon offset programme.

We have a nominated charity and organise company and team activities to raise money each year as well as supporting organised events – from donning our Christmas silly jumpers to baking cakes for MacMillan or sleeping out in Manchester overnight, our teams will always jump on board.
