Two categories have been added to the 2023 European Office Products Awards (EOPA) to reflect current channel trends.
Given the focus in Europe on the environment and CSR, an EOPA Sustainability Award will now be presented to a supplier and a reseller. Previously, there was just one award for sustainability, but this expansion now allows for a differentiation between the manufacturing and distribution/reselling communities.
There is also a brand new category called Marketplace/Platform of the Year to acknowledge the growing importance of online marketplaces as a sales channel. The judging panel for this award will be looking for an operation that can offer a superior customer experience and which demonstrates a commitment to maximising opportunities for selling partners.
Calls for entries for these – and all the other categories – are now OPEN. There will be a total of 12 awards. They are:
- Sustainability Excellence – Vendor
- Sustainability Excellence – Reseller
- Marketing Campaign of the Year
- Initiative of the Year
- Business Product of the Year
- Marketplace/Platform of the Year
- Reseller of the Year
- Vendor of the Year
- Wholesaler of the Year
- Young Executive of the Year
- Professional of the Year
- Industry Achievement
The deadline for receiving entries and nominations is 11 November 2022.
The 2023 EOPA will take place during a presentation dinner to be held in Amsterdam on 13 March.
