The annual National Sales & Marketing Executives (NSME) “Accent on Excellence” awards program in the greater Akron/Canton region recognizes the Executive of the Year, the Outstanding Community Leader, multiple “Achievements in Excellence” awards recipients and the Exceptional Sales and Marketing Collegiate Recipient.
These honorees have demonstrated the highest levels of professionalism during their careers in diverse sales and marketing roles. Winners are selected by NSME leaders, based on nominations from local professionals, questionnaire responses provided by the nominees and publicly available information. Criteria include community and civic involvement, professional experience and demonstrated performance.
In the Akron/Canton area, the NSME has held an annual awards gala to honor the “best of the best” sales and marketing professionals since 1972. This popular event is well-known and respected among regional business, non-profit and higher-education organizations.
The evening begins with a cash bar cocktail hour at 5:00 p.m. followed by dinner and the awards program. Formal dress is optional.
Tickets are $95 per person (non-members) and $85 for NSME Akron/Canton members. Tables for eight are available for $995 for Bronze Sponsors who receive table and program recognition.
