For this reason, in the design of this award we wanted to emphasize that this is a unique event. The categories and areas thatmake up the awards have never before been grouped together in awards of this nature.

May its award statuette, made up of the acronyms of the sectors covered, serve as a cornerstone and symbol in the construction of this project that has led to the creation of these awards.
