The 2019 ISM BESMA nominations are now closed.

We are delighted to announce that we have once again received a record number of nominations from an ever growing range of sales professionals, teams and organisation’s spanning across a wide range of industry sectors.

The independent pre-judging will take place this week to assess all the nominations submitted against the required criteria. The aim of the pre-judging is to identify who this year’s finalists will be and who will be in contention to present their case for a prestigious BESMA at the BESMA judging days in London on the 11th and 12th of September.

The successful finalists are listed below.

From everyone here at the ISM we would like to convey our thanks to everyone who has submitted a nomination to recognise excellence in our industry and wish all of our nominees the very best of luck.

Good luck and hopefully we will see you on the 11th and 12th of September.
