Baltics reseller Officeday was one of the winners of the 17th European Office Products Awards (EOPA) which were announced during a glittering presentation dinner at the Hotel Okura in Amsterdam on 6 March 2018. It‘s the first time in EOPA history when Baltic states company wins such award.

The annual EOPA were once again presented as part of OPI’s Partnership event – which this year for the fifth time brought together senior executives from Europe’s reseller and vendor communities for strategic one-to-one meetings and a chance to celebrate some great products, initiatives, companies and individuals from the business supplies industry.

Officeday won the Reseller of the Year award in the under €100 million category. A strong presence in their local market is one of the core criteria for winning the Reseller of the Year award. Officeday certainly fits that bill. Expansive in terms of product portfolio, tech-savvy in terms of how to sell that portfolio and ambitious in terms of its geographical reach, this reseller has done all the groundwork towards its objective of becoming an innovative office and school supplies company that provides best-in-class products and services in the Baltics.

Commenting on this year’s EOPA, Hilleard, who is also the Chairman of the EOPA judging panel, said: “Once again, the judges were extremely impressed by the quality of the entries we received. Innovative products, inspiring campaigns and initiatives, and outstanding companies and individuals – that about sums it up. Selecting the shortlists was a challenge, choosing the winners even more so. All in all, this year’s EOPA are a great endorsement for an industry that is tackling head-on the many and varied challenges thrown at it.”
