EOPA 2024 shortlist announced

OPI is delighted to reveal the shortlist for the 2024 European Office Products Awards (EOPA). 


OPI is delighted to reveal the shortlist for the 2024 European Office Products Awards (EOPA). 

Earlier in January, a large group of experienced senior executives representing a variety of channels across the business supplies industry came together for this year’s EOPA judging meeting in Paris. Now in their 23rd year, the EOPA are firmly established as the ultimate accolade for business products companies operating in Europe – the high number of entries is testament to the awards’ prestige. 

Gathering in person for only the second time since the 2020 EOPA, the judges – who had already evaluated the entries and nominations in an online pre-judging process – took part in a full day of lively debates before deciding the final shortlist for 10 of the 12 categories. 

In order to distinguish between a person who has gone above and beyond in our industry over the past 12 months and someone who has been an outstanding leader over a longer period, the judges elected to create a new category – Business Leader of the Year – to award the latter. Meanwhile, Executive of the Year acknowledges the achievements of an individual who has made a significant contribution to the industry over a shorter period.

Both Business Leader of the Year and the Industry Achievement award do not have a shortlist. 

All of the awards will be presented during a celebration dinner on 12 March 2024 at the Hotel Okura in Amsterdam.
