SMP SALES & MARKETING AWARDS
The SMP Awards were established to recognize the best in the sales and marketing profession. As standards of skill in the sales and marketing professions are continually improving, the business community has become increasingly aware of the critical role that these professionals play in the success factors for most organizations.
The SMP Awards recognize, promote and honor excellence, professionalism and outstanding achievement in sales and marketing, while showcasing the highest level of talent in each participating community.
Just being nominated confers prestige not just on the individuals but also on the companies they represent, illustrating the high standards of management, training and commitment to excellence within these companies.
