As the trade association representing UK audio production companies, AudioUK exists to help grow and promote the UK audio production sector, both at home and abroad.


The proliferation of portable devices capable of downloading, streaming and playing audio, plus the public’s ever-increasing appetite for good storytelling and compelling content, has caused markets for audio content to grow rapidly.


AudioUK works to ensure that, now and in the future, the sector has the skills, and the regulatory and business environment, to maximise its potential as a world leader in this market.


There are already around 150 audio production companies based across the UK, involved in making a wide range of audio-led content: podcasts; audiobooks; audio games; programmes for BBC Radio and commercial radio services; branded audio content; radio station jingles; and much more.


Audio UK has four main priorities:


Business: connecting suppliers to the marketplace; seeking new opportunities, including on an international level; providing business and legal affairs support


Representation: ensuring the sector continues to be recognised and listened to by Government, regulators, and industry


Community: growing membership; giving audio producers a feeling of belonging to a growing and successful industry; sharing information and best practice; encouraging diversity in all its forms


Excellence: providing ongoing specialised training through the Audiotrain programme; celebrating the sector’s achievements, through events including the Audio Production Awards


In meeting these priorities we build on our core strengths:
