The BPMA is running a competition as part of Promotional Products Week 2014 challenging business people to send in pictures of their desks for the chance to win the ‘Desk of the Year’ Award and £1,000 of promotional products. The Desk of the Year is a national campaign and anyone can submit their ‘deskie’ via Facebook until 19th September 2014. All respondents who upload a snapshot of their desk at www.facebook.com/bpmaSourcing or tweet @PPWeek #PPWeek will automatically be entered into a prize draw where the winner will receive £1,000 of desk accessories for their business, as well as the title ‘Desk of the Year’ and a commemorative plaque. Gordon Glenister, director-general of the BPMA, says: “We’re looking for desks with character, desks with style, desks that have seen a lot of life and a bit of loving by office workers around the UK. It doesn’t matter whether the working desk is in an office, a garden shed or even on the kitchen table.” Promotional Products Week takes place from 15th - 19th September 2014 and is being run by the British Promotional Merchandise Association (BPMA). It will see activity from its 600 plus members, including open days, events and hospitality, new product launches and special offers, as well as the BPMA Student Design Innovation Awards, run in conjunction with Brunel University.
