This year at Unlock Boston, we announced the winners of the annual Akeneo Partner Awards, recognizing top-performing solution and technology partners for their innovative and extraordinary work for our customers.


Akeneo Community


We are thrilled to share the winners of the annual Akeneo Partner Awards recognizing top-performing solution and technology partners for their innovative and extraordinary work for our customers. 

Award recipients are selected based on demonstrating exceptional performance in either implementing Akeneo’s Product Information Management (PIM) solution for their clients or developing a joint technology solution that meets unique customer needs. 

In both cases, partners have contributed significantly to the growth and development of the Akeneo ecosystem by acting as advocates for our joint solutions in the broader community and by collaborating to ensure the best customer outcomes and product experience (PX) excellence. 

Tremendous applause to our esteemed partners for an outstanding year in 2023, and congratulations to our award winners. Your unwavering dedication, tireless efforts, and pursuit of excellence are truly commendable.
