Struc­tured to rec­og­nize sales ex­per­tise across a va­ri­ety of in­dus­tries and job scopes, the awards pro­gramme com­prises of six cat­e­gories, namely, the Na­tional Sales Man­agers cat­e­gory, Re­gional Sales Man­agers cat­e­gory, Ter­ri­tory Man­agers cat­e­gory, Sales Ex­ec­u­tives cat­e­gory, Front lin­ers cat­e­gory and Other Sales Staff cat­e­gory.

The rig­or­ous se­lec­tion process is car­ried out by a dis­tin­guished panel of 41 judges, who hail from a di­verse range of in­dus­tries and are highly ac­claimed and re­spected in their pro­fes­sions.

Com­ment­ing on SLIM host­ing the 18th edi­tion of its highly an­tic­i­pated NASCO Awards cer­e­mony, SLIM Pres­i­dent and Lanka Hos­pi­tals Di­ag­nos­tics CEO Pradeep Ed­ward stated, “Over the last 17 years, SLIM NASCO has served as the only na­tion-level awards pro­gramme that ac­knowl­edges and cel­e­brates the ex­cel­lence of sales teams and in­di­vid­u­als across Sri Lanka.

Since its in­cep­tion, the NASCO Awards pro­gramme has risen to be­come a pres­ti­gious an­nual event, with its ac­co­lades be­ing highly cov­eted and widely con­tested by sales forces from a mul­ti­tude of in­dus­tries across Sri Lanka. Our mis­sion is to up­lift the sales pro­fes­sion in Sri Lanka and en­cour­age more tal­ented and self-driven young in­di­vid­u­als to em­brace ca­reers in sales, which in turn will em­power the coun­try’s en­tire sales fra­ter­nity, lead­ing to sus­tain­able and ro­bust busi­nesses that strengthen our econ­omy.

We look for­ward to host­ing this year’s SLIM NASCO Awards cer­e­mony, which will be a gala event with nearly 1,000 sales pro­fes­sion­als and cor­po­rate rep­re­sen­ta­tives gath­er­ing un­der one roof to cel­e­brate Sri Lankan sales­man­ship.” SLIM is the na­tional body for Mar­ket­ing in Sri Lanka and has been pro­mot­ing mar­ket­ing ex­cel­lence and el­e­vat­ing the field of mar­ket­ing since 1970.
