Sales & Marketing Excellence Award

Honor Your “Best and Brightest”

What is the Sales & Marketing Excellence Award?

The Sales & Marketing Excellence Award (SMEA) program is an opportunity for Central New York organizations to honor their “best and brightest” employees.

Since 1977, Central New York Sales & Marketing Executives (CNYSME) has been recognizing excellence in the sales and marketing profession at their Annual Crystal Ball / SMEA Banquet where Sales & Marketing Excellence Award recipients are publicly honored by their organizations and CNYSME.

Who qualifies to receive a Sales & Marketing Excellence Award?

CNYSME encourages organizations to determine their own standards by which to select their Sales & Marketing Excellence Award recipient(s). We suggest that the following accomplishments be considered:

  • Understanding the customer
  • Understanding the market
  • Conveying positive company image
  • Quality of presentation
  • Attaining objectives
  • Community and civic involvement

Why should your company participate?

Sponsoring a Sales & Marketing Excellence Award winner brings tangible benefits to your firm through:

  • Public recognition for employees of your organization who exemplify professional sales and marketing excellence.
  • Excitement created within your organization and the incentive for others to strive toward this same goal.
  • Publicity obtained for your winner(s) and your firm through the SMEA program, press releases, advertising and banquet.
