The Office Products Awards

The Office Products Awards are an initiative aimed at emphasizing the innovative force of products in the office market. The Award is widely accepted as a prestigious prize and is still gaining recognition year on year. The Office Products Awards are unique in its type. It is the only Award in the world that covers only office related products in more than fourteen categories and, what is more important, it is not sponsored and organized by the Offiano Foundation. The Office Products Awards, presented for the tenth time in 2017, was created as a platform for important innovative products in the Benelux office market but are now worldwide recognized as the most respected award in the industry. This years competition, consisting of sixteen categories, is now open to all companies which introduced there product and made it available between May 2016 and June 2017.

Independence is an important issue for the organization behind the Award. The Office Products Awards are not sponsored and nominees and winners are selected by an independent jury. The members of the jury reflect the variety of companies in the office market and include end-users, buyers, dealers and industry consultants and specialists.
There can be no competition without winners, which is why the jury of the Office Products Awards aims to select three nominees per category. The nominees are announced the day after a two-day jury meeting. The nomination logo which may be used free of rights is immediately made available to all nominees. During The Office VIP Days, on the second of October 2017, the winners are announced during an enjoyable get together of representatives of all nominated companies. The winning products earn the right to use the WINNER logo and receive the accompanying certificate.
Participation can present companies with a unique opportunity to gain publicity for their products. Publicity will appear worldwide in different varieties of media (print and internet) – aimed at trade and users. Obviously the winners are assured of publicity but the nominees and even entrants with a very special product can often also count on getting media attention.
