FRAMINGHAM, Mass. – Security Sales & Integration proudly announces the finalists for the 22nd Annual SAMMY (Sales and Marketing) Awards. The SAMMY Awards is the industry’s only program of its kind to recognize and honor installing security dealers and integrators for their marketing, business, installation and overall excellence.

SSI received more than 130 entries from installing and monitoring security systems contractors from throughout North America and even some from abroad.

This year’s finalists are paced by Stanley Security with five nominations, including major categories Integrated Installation of the Year and Best Overall Marketing Campaign. Bates Security and Advanced Cabling Systems each notched four nominations, including Best Overall Marketing Campaign for the former and Installer of the Year (Small to Midsize Company) for the latter. Protection 1 is vying for Integrated Installation of the Year, Installer of the Year and Best Overall Marketing Campaign. Engineered Protection Systems is also up for three awards.

SSI would like to thank the panel of independent judges who evaluated a multitude of entries. These individuals are among the industry’s top marketing and PR professionals. They are: Tom Brigham, principal, Brigham Scully Communications; Jon Daum, partner, Daum Weigle Public Relations; David Morgan, co-founder, Security Dealer Marketing; and Sue Toscano, principal, Toscano Communications.

Winners will be revealed during the free, open-to-all ceremony April 4, 4:30-6:30 p.m., at the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino (Marco Polo Rooms 801 and 802) in Las Vegas.
