City of Tallinn Excellence in Sales Award

As an old Hansaetic League town Tallinn recognises the student company with the best approach to sales. The award will be decided at the stand exhibition, where sales techniques, customer approach and overall turnover from the day will be considered. As GEN-E 2022 is an ecologically mindful event then huge amounts of wasteful advertising materials (flyers, handouts, etc.) will not give extra credit but rather be seen as a minus.
