Recognising Excellence – The BPMA Awards

The BPMA Awards are back to mark the best in our industry

We’ve come a long way from February 2020 when we gathered to celebrate the BPMA Awards and recognise those brilliant businesses who landed Product of the Year accolades. Once again, the BPMA is rolling out the red carpet for its members to finally honour member achievements.

As we look ahead to 2022, the Product Awards and BPMA Awards are back with a bang. With refreshed Product Award categories to enter, the BPMA has been busy planning for both Awards over the last few months. “We’re so excited to be finally talking about Awards again. We decided during last year the situation just wasn’t right so this year, we’re recognising successes over 2020 and 2021 for our Product Awards and opening voting for the BPMA Awards,” says the BPMA’s Tom Robey.

With an extraordinarily tough few years for the entire industry, the BPMA is looking to celebrate the innovation that drove members forward, and recognise the resilience and staying power of companies who strove to maintain excellence throughout.

“These Awards are going to represent so much more this year as we all know how much effort has gone into just staying the course; we can’t wait to mark their achievements,” says Robey. “What has been so exciting about planning these awards are the products our judges will be asked to review after the incredible innovation we’ve seen plus seeing the outcomes of the votes for the BPMA awards.”


The Product Awards this year recognise products on the market from January 2020 right through to November 2021 as exception for this year only. With a category refresh, BPMA suppliers can choose from a range of categories to suit their product, remembering products can be entered into more than one category.

• Drinkware Product of the Year
• Awards & Gifting Product of the Year
• Pens & Stationery Product of the Year
• Exhibition Product of the Year
• Technology Product of the Year
• Health & Travel Product of the Year
• Bags & Folders Product of the Year
• Work & Play Product of the Year
• Apparel Product of the Year
* Eco Product of the year

The Product Awards are open to BPMA suppliers exhibiting at Merchandise World. More information can be found at


The BPMA Awards provide a truly unique insight into company reputation and performance. Voting for this year’s awards opens in December with the membership recognising suppliers and distributors who have excelled. Members can also nominate their ‘Unsung Hero’ during voting. As the industry regroups for Merchandise World in January 2022, the BPMA will be once again hosting a glittering Awards Dinner in Coventry.

Look out for more details from the BPMA or visit for more information on entering, voting and booking a ticket for the Awards Dinner on Wednesday 26 January 2022 at The Ricoh Arena, Coventry.
