Member Benefits


The ARA Member Benefits Partner Program                                                                                     

The ARA is committed to provide value-added services to our members, and so, we are excited to announce the launch of the ARA Member Benefits Program.


The program will provide ARA members with exclusive offers and discounts on a range of products and services required in your everyday business operations, such as energy, leasing, shopfitting, payment solutions, freight and logistics, and much more.


Participating vendors in the program go through a rigorous tender process to ensure the value promised to ARA members is better than the open market and provides tangible cost savings or value-added services to you.
