In 2006 two giants in Sri Lanka’s marketing sector came together to initiate the only awards program in the country, the SLIM Nielsen People’s Awards, where brands and personalities are recognised and acclaimed based on the preference of the general public. The national body of marketing, Sri Lanka Institute of Marketing (SLIM) created this awards ceremony together with Nielsen, one of the leading global research agencies, to identify and acknowledge brands and personalities that have made a profound impression upon the people in Sri Lanka.

The 12th edition of the SLIM Nielsen People’s Awards will be held on 9 March at Waters Edge.

The winners and nominees of each of the forty-three award categories are selected based on the findings of a survey conducted by Nielsen across all 25 districts and 9 provinces in Sri Lanka. The sample size for the survey is 2,700 respondents across both males and females, aged between 15 and60 years. The SLIM-Nielsen People’s Awards is distinct as the people act as the panel of judges and are able to rate their favourite brands, personalities, advertisements, films, tele-dramas, etc. and apprehend their verdict, making the SLIM-Nielsen People’s Awards one of the most credible award ceremonies among the corporate sector. 

As the national body for marketing, the Sri Lanka Institute of Marketing has been in service since 1970. SLIM’s ultimate purpose is to contribute to the economic growth of the nation by fostering the development and growth of marketing as a key element in management, as well as advising and assisting in the formation, implementation and appraisal of national policies on any matters connected with marketing, both in Sri Lanka and abroad.
