Testimonial by ACE Circulation


The Association of Circulation Executives [Ace] since 1951 has been at the forefront of hosting educational, networking and social events tailored specifically for the benefit of the Newspaper and Magazine Industry.

A mainstay of our calendar is The Newspaper and Magazine Awards (NMA’s). The selection of the right partner to deliver this highly acclaimed event is critical. In 2017 the Ace committee took the decision to appoint a new partner and after much deliberation selected Holland Alexander. The decision was unequivocally the correct one as Holland Alexander excelled in producing their first event with us remain our committed partner and continue to impress in delivering memorable events for Ace [producing NMA2018, NMA2019 ] whilst maintaining a level of care and attention previously not experienced.

Their skills and experience has been no more ably demonstrated in this challenging year managing the Covid-19 impact on our events. Not only have they helped guide our committee in navigating the postponement of the Newspaper and Magazine Awards event, twice, they consulted and aided our decision to switch the event to an online production at extremely short notice.

Holland Alexander’s close understanding of our organisation and our goals has been a key strength in their ability to present the concepts, ideas, planning and rationale that is critical in delivering excellence. Working to a severely condensed timeline we were impressed and delighted with the quality of planning, the seamless execution and the accomplished management of our NMA2020-WIRED online awards ceremony in July 2020. The audience reaction was simply brilliant and the post event support by Holland Alexander highly professional.

Would we recommend Holland Alexander? Well we have engaged them to produce our NMA2021-WIRED event in April 2021 and hope to have them as partners for many years to come, need we say more?
