Event Preview: OPI Partnership 2017

Now in its fourth year, OPI Partnership has become the event in the European office products calendar that facilitates the coming together of leading vendors and resellers in our industry.


At this three-day event, held from 7-9 March in Amsterdam in the Netherlands – again at the fabulous Hotel Okura – senior executives from established as well as emerging vendors in the ever expanding business supplies sector have the chance to spend time with Europe’s leading resellers. 

In confidential and strictly-timed meetings – to maximise the available time for all parties – participants have the opportunity to consolidate existing relationships and assess and develop new ones, particularly in product segments that are still relatively new in our sector, including the whole emerging gamut of facilities supplies. 

In addition to strategic discussions in those meetings, there will also be plenty of networking opportunities. One of them will be OPI’s annual European Office Products Awards which will be held on 8 March, at the end of the first full day of OPI Partnership.

Commenting on the continuous evolution of the event, OPI’s CEO Steve Hilleard says: “When we first launched Partnership in 2014, we knew there was a real need for this type of event where top-level executives from both the vendor and the reseller channels could get together in a completely confidential setting and either cement existing relationships or forge new ones. 

“But we never expected the enthusiasm with which participants embraced this opportunity or the positive feedback we’ve had in actually helping companies grow and enhance their businesses through attending Partnership. It’s been a revelation and we continue to strive to make the event better every year.”

This year’s Partnership event is now sold out, but if you are interested in finding out more or to be considered for this invitation-only event in 2018, please contact Steve Hilleard on steve.hilleard@opi.net
