The Society is very proud of its links with industry, which it maintains through corporate membership, exhibition opportunities at RMS events and sponsorship of RMS activities.

Corporate Membership demonstrates an organisation’s support for the activities and objectives of the Royal Microscopical Society. The RMS is extremely grateful to the society’s Corporate Members and the support given for the activities and objectives of the society. 

The RMS runs a busy calendar of events covering all aspects of microscopy and cytometry for which sponsorship and exhibition space are on offer.

The RMS has a long history of hosting events on behalf of Societies, providing the administrative support and organisational time needed to run successful events. After exploring ways that we can further support our Corporate Members we are excited to be able to offer event hosting services to Corporate Members.

The Society works closely with its Corporate Members to ensure that its exhibitions meet the needs of companies and delegates and provide the best opportunities for interaction and networking through its Corporate Advisory Board.

There are a number of promotional opportunities available to our Corporate Members through the RMS website and infocus Magazine. Members can promote their latest products and other news on the homepage of the RMS Website. Each month, two news ‘slots’ are available to book, offering a guaranteed two weeks’ presence on our homepage, promotion on the official RMS social media channels, and inclusion in our monthly newsletter.

Infocus Magazine, the vibrant and striking magazine of the Society is an online publication which provides a common forum for scientists and technologists from all disciplines who use any form of microscopy, cytometry or microbeam analysis. infocus features articles on microscopy-related topics, techniques and developments, an events calendar, reports on scientific meetings and other events, book reviews, RMS news, company news and information on new microscopes and accessories.

Corporate members receive preferential advertising rates, inclusion of up to three press releases per issue, plus one free, full-page colour advert per year in infocus. Corporate members also have the opportunity to advertise through the online publication – sponsoring newsletter content and individual articles.
