    The European Office Products Awards will be presented in the following categories:

    Company Awards

    Sustainability Excellence
    Judges will be looking at overall corporate sustainability performance and a genuine commitment to sustainable business practices. Whatever the size of your organisation, if your company has developed an effective and comprehensive programme you are eligible to enter. Judges will consider:

    • Evidence of a strategic focus on sustainability
    • Whether your sustainability programme goes beyond best practice
    • How the programme is communicated and implemented
    • Methods used to monitor and measure the impact of your sustainability programme
    • How your commitment to sustainability benefits your business and the wider community

    Marketing Campaign of the Year
    This category is open to any organisation that can clearly show the success of a specific marketing campaign. Judges will consider:

    • Objectives of the campaign
    • Understanding the target audience
    • Marketing activity, innovative methods used, originality and creativity
    • The return on investment generated
      Campaigns that have not started, or are too new to have measureable results, will not be considered.

    Initiative of the Year
    This award recognises any new initiative that has been implemented and has had a positive impact on your organisation. This could be:

    • A charitable or local community initiative
    • New online or e-commerce solutions
    • Pioneering technology
    • Creation of new revenue opportunities

    The panel will want to see why the initiative was introduced and how it has delivered the desired outcomes.

    Business Product of the Year
    This category is open to any product sold via the European business supplies industry that has continued to succeed in a difficult market. The judges are looking for evidence of functionality, quality and, above all, commercial success.
    This category is open to products launched since January 2020.

    Reseller of the Year
    Vendor of the Year
    Wholesaler of the Year
    These awards will recognise companies that successfully adapted to the challenges of the pandemic. Judges will focus on organisations that have diversified, innovated and evolved their business model to succeed in a competitive and rapidly changing market.
