Sales pro­fes­sion­als from 116 or­gan­i­sa­tions con­test for SLIM – NASCO Awards 2018

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - HR / MARKETING -

The Sri Lanka In­sti­tute of Mar­ket­ing (SLIM)’S 2018 edi­tion of the Na­tional Sales Congress (NASCO), has recorded the high­estever par­tic­i­pa­tion in the his­tory of NASCO.

This year, en­tries over 750 have been reg­is­tered for the cat­e­gories from front­line staff, ex­ec­u­tive to ter­ri­tory man­agers rep­re­sent­ing 116 com­pa­nies across 22 in­dus­tries, of which 42 of them are first time par­tic­i­pants.

The mis­sion of SLIM NASCO is to up­lift the sales pro­fes­sion in Sri Lanka and thereby the fra­ter­nity for the fu­ture sus­tain­abil­ity of busi­nesses and in­dus­tries, which con­trib­ute to the Sri Lankan econ­omy.

The high­est par­tic­i­pa­tion in the com­pe­ti­tion this year has been from FMCG, bank­ing and fi­nance and in­dus­trial/man­u­fac­tur­ing sec­tors. In terms of en­tries, 300 were from front­line em­ploy­ees, 200 were from ex­ec­u­tives and re­mark­ably, 250 en­tries were from the man­age­rial cat­e­gories.

As this premier event, which is ded­i­cated to rec­og­niz­ing the ef­forts and per­for­mances of sales per­son­nel, it is ea­gerly awaited by Sri Lanka’s sales pro­fes­sion­als who rush to en­ter the keenly con­tested awards, in a bid to revel in the spotlight of na­tional at­ten­tion, be­ing the only na­tional level event that con­structs a plat­form to show­case the prow­ess of the sales force of this coun­try.

The judg­ing rounds of SLIM NASCO will com­mence to­wards end­june and all ap­pli­cants will be no­ti­fied two weeks prior to the date of the judg­ing. The emi­nent panel of judges con­sists of 36 mem­bers, who are the most ex­pe­ri­enced and re­spected mar­ket­ing and sales pro­fes­sion­als from across di­verse in­dus­tries.
