Procuring an award for DPW

Scooping a silver in the Best New Conference (>400 delegates) category was a ringing endorsement for the team at Digital Procurement World, which had been set up just the year before. We were delighted to support them to tell their story to the judges, and to fight off international competition to pick up the award.

We helped new conference Digital Procurement World (DPW) get recognition for their brilliant event in the form of a Silver Award for Best New Conference (>400 delegates) at the Conference Awards.
DPW2019, a brand new conference within an established sector, took place in September, 2019. The event attracted 431 industry leaders from 33 countries, secured 277,000 EUR of sponsorship funds, and was dubbed “the best new procurement event in years” by a leading procurement analyst.

In a hotly-contested category with seven conference on the shortlist, the DPW team were delighted to scoop an award.

The judges said DPW was a “…great example of the power of events, bringing a variety of people together to unite. This event helps shape the future of business by engaging procurement, start-ups and business leaders. Excellent concept and executed well. Excellent success rate.”

DPW Founder Matthias Gutzmann said our support was invaluable. “The Awards Writers team helped unpack our story, shine a light on our achievements, and wow the judges with a submission that showed just what an impact our event had.

“Despite the challenges for our industry in 2020, we’ve adapted our model to ensure we can still bring together procurement professionals online, and support people with innovative ideas for digital procurement. We will return even stronger with DPW2021.”
