After close consultation with suppliers and resellers, OPI has decided to reschedule its next Partnership event to the end of June 2021.
Originally programmed for March, the overwhelming majority of attendees were strongly in favour of a switch to the end of June, when – hopefully – COVID-related travel restrictions will have been lifted and a degree of normalcy will have returned to the events calendar. While virtual meetings have been the norm over the past few months, there is a strong desire to see Partnership continue as an in-person forum.
Therefore, Partnership 2021 – which enables European buyers and manufacturers to hold up to 13 strategic meetings in less than 48 hours – will now take place at the Hotel Okura in Amsterdam from 27-29 June. The full schedule can be found here.
With most places already filled, OPI is pleased to announce that 30% of confirmed companies will be attending Partnership for the first time, with this number rising to 40% for the reseller community, including many from outside the so-called ‘traditional’ office products channel.
“The recent news about vaccinations has been very encouraging and that makes us extremely confident that Partnership will run safely, face to face,” said OPI Commercial Director Chris Exner. “I’m convinced it will provide many new sales opportunities for all those taking part, and we can’t wait to see everyone again in person.”
