OPI is delighted to announce the shortlist for the 2023 European Office Products Awards (EOPA)

An independent panel of industry executives gathered in Paris, France, earlier this month – for the first time in person since 2019. The task was to whittle down a large number of high-quality entries and nominations into a list of finalists.  

Now in their 22nd year, the EOPA are firmly established as the ultimate accolade for business products companies operating in Europe.  

The judging panel this year is larger and more varied than ever before. Lively discussions began early in the morning and continued for many hours until a shortlist was created for nine of the 12 categories. One of these categories – Marketplace/Platform of the Year – is brand new, given ongoing and rapid developments in this area.  

The Business Leader of the Year and Industry Achievement awards, incidentally, have no shortlist. All the winners will be announced during a celebration dinner on 13 March 2023 at the Hotel Okura in Amsterdam, Netherlands, during OPI Partnership
