Finalists! Total Merchandise Honoured At The BPMA Awards

The Total Merchandise team are delighted to have been honoured as finalists in the 2023 BPMA Awards - and for not just one award but two!

Last Wednesday (24 January 2023), some of the Total Merchandise team headed to Coventry for the 10th edition of Merchandise World. Hosted by the British Promotional Merchandise Association (BPMA) and Sourcing City, the event offers promotional product suppliers a unique opportunity to discover innovative product ideas and fantastic new suppliers.

Later that evening was the prestigious BPMA Awards - arguably the Oscars of the promotional merchandise world. The annual event celebrates both distributors and suppliers, providing the perfect opportunity to raise a glass to some of the best merchandise businesses across the UK. 

With our heads still spinning from everything we saw at Merchandise World, we were delighted to discover that we'd been voted as finalists for not one but two awards: the BRIMAN award and the Distributor of the Year £5m+ award.

While Distributor of the Year £5m+ is arguably the biggest category of the evening, we were absolutely delighted to discover that we had been selected as finalists for the BRIMAN award, too.

BRIMAN celebrates British manufacturing in the promotional merchandise industry, which is something we've been working hard to support with our range of UK-made promotional products, so being acknowledged in this way is an honour.

Congratulations to everyone on the shortlist and thanks for having us, BPMA and Sourcing City - we're looking forward to next year's event already.
