"We had a very important participation in this consultation, and in an open and democratic way we can recognize today the companies that best faced the difficulties of a very difficult year, in the midst of a pandemic, and highlight the best representatives of the market, according to their categories", explained Alan Burak, Vice President of Monografie.

T

he authorities of Monografie reported that 2,500 regulators, operators, executives, and businessmen of the sector have participated in the selection of winners of the SAGSE 2020 ranking.

According to Alan Burak, Vice President of Monografie, the participation of the public exceeded all his expectations: “After the success of this initiative in Latin America, we wanted to repeat this recognition for the companies present in the United States and Europe, and once again we achieved a record voter engagement for this first edition of the SAGSE ranking for those markets, the result of which we are announcing today”.

“The pandemic and a greater motivation to support the companies that put up a fight during 2020 may explain the amount of attention received by the industry regarding our proposal, which achieved a record participation not only in the region that shelters SAGSE as a historically referential event but also it openly and democratically elected the best representatives of the market in Europe, according to their categories", he added.

"To vote in one or more of the categories, it was only necessary to enter our online form and choose who were the best exponents of the sector, in a year that was undoubtedly the most challenging in the industry in a long time," he concluded. The SAGSE 2020 ranking recognizes the companies that have stood out the most in the past year, leading the industry's path towards a speedy recovery, not only in Latin America but now in Europe and the United States as well.
