Advertising Benefits

Explosives Engineering affords a number of benefits and marketing opportunities to those companies who are able to recognise and exploit them:

  • Establishing and maintaining a credibility within the industry by being seen to be associated with the IExpE
  • Long ‘shelf life’ for their advertisement message because issues are ‘live’ for a full three month period and are kept and repeatedly referred to.
  • All advertisements have highly prominent positions to maximise their effectiveness – either placed on covers or facing editorial text.
  • A range of special issue sponsorship packages at highly competitive rates for companies wishing to celebrate a particular event or make a significant impact.
