Organizers' Choice Awards

Overview
Each year, companies exhibiting at the NAPO Annual Conference and Organizing Expo are invited to nominate one of their products, services or resources for an Organizers’ Choice Award. Selected by NAPO members attending that year’s conference, Organizers’ Choice Award winners represent the solutions that professional organizers and productivity specialists choose as their favorites to use and recommend to their clients.

In 2013, the award categories were expanded to 10 to accommodate the significant growth of products, services and resources available in the global organizing and productivity industry. The categories are as follows:
