18 September 2007 — Shanghai (CHN): Staples China has been announced as the platinum sponsor of the OPI Chinese Office Products Awards 2007.
Following the success of the first-ever Chinese Office Products Awards last year, the retailer has thrown its full support behind this year’s event, being held during Paperworld China on 19 November.
"As the inventor of the office superstore concept, Staples hopes that by sponsoring events like this, it can play a greater role in establishing the infrastructure necessary to cultivate the potential of the Chinese office products market," said David Pu, VP at Staples China.
"Staples has found OPI to be a positive influence on the industry in other regions, and so while the office products industry in China continues to develop, we believe that OPI will play an important role in connecting and informing what is otherwise still a very fragmented community."
The awards will be presented at gala dinner at the InterContinetal Hotel Pudong, Shanghai, which will be attended by leading figures from the international office products industry. To book your place, or for more information, email Ritu Lukhman at Ritu.Lukhman@opi.net
