Client Membership

DCA exists to encourage the sharing of best practice, insight and expertise between members. Our membership comprises businesses of all sizes, from entrepreneurial start-ups to well-established household names. Most of our members are multichannel. They deploy catalogues, digital marketing, eCommerce sites, retail/trade counter outlets, off-the-page advertising and/or TV shopping. Many have customers in both the UK and overseas markets, some may also wholesale their products or deploy franchisees/self-employed agents to extend their reach. A number are the UK subsidiaries of major European and American groups. As such our members represent a rich and diverse range of retail and distribution businesses, with all keen to share experience, access focused training and to work together to develop the market as a whole.

DCA aims to be inclusive and accessible to businesses of all sizes. The fees are based upon annual sales.
