European technological innovation meets in Paris


The Ritz Hotel Paris held the second edition of the European Technology Awards, an event that brought together 24 companies, start-ups and professionals that stand out for their excellence and expertise in the technological sector


In December Paris shines more than ever. Thousands of Christmas lights iluminate the so-called City of Light, which can be seen even from space. Parisian streets are lit with understated, yet elegant white and amber light bulbs, decorated with trees and garlands, reaching their finest expression in the historic Place Vendôme. 

Award-winners and guests took a few minutes to contemplate the Christmas lights at the entrance of the Ritz Hotel, before moving on to the welcome cocktail, where the Awards’ management team made the pertinent presentations, inviting attendees to interact creating a proactive networking.

After the cocktail party, the attendees took the official photo at the photocall, before going down to the Vendôme salon, one of the most emblematic of the popular hotel.

The mezzo-soprano Catalina Rodríguez and the soprano Vanessa Cera appeared on stage to open the gala with a musical performance. Then the hosts of the event, Raquel Castro and Andrés López, called Awards’ directo, Antonio Queijeiro, to the stage. 

The director pointed out the importance of technological innovation, especially nowadays. Queijeiro emphasized the changes caused by the pandemic and encouraged company’s CEOs to contribute and make an effort overcome this crisis, both at a health, social and economic level. In addition, the director wanted to end his speech by thanking all the medical sector, Security Forces and professionals who worked daily and tirelessly during the hard months of the pandemic. To all of them he dedicated the “Nessun Dorma”, from the opera Turandot, performed by the tenor Jorge Puerta.

Professional and Business Excellence Institute, organizing entity of the event, delivered 24 trophies to companies, entrepreneurs and professionals in the technology sector. Innovation, training, research and the development of new techniques and products, where key factors to select those professionals who, through their work and projects, make us part of the technological change. 

During the gala, the award-winners had the opportunity to present their companies and projects to the audience and give a short speech, thanking their family, colleagues, and friends in one of the most emotional moments of the event. "This award would not be possible without our team, our 'qaleonians', that's what we call ourselves," said María José Alonso, CEO of Qaleon. "It is a pride to collect this award, which recognizes the work of all my colleagues, even those who are no longer with us, but were key at the beginning", recalled Jose Joaquín Cid, manager of SAS24. Lorena Sánchez, from Aotech Security, emotionally named all the team members who have made possible the birth of Class in The Box, a solution that makes it easy for schools to teach classes remotely.

During the break, music went back on stage. The Spanish artist Aixa Romay entertained the audience with a brilliant interpretation of the song “The Best”, by Tina Turner, very appropriate for the occasion. 

Pablo Suñer, manager of El Suplemento, was in charge of pronouncing the official closing words, in which he encouraged the winners to move forward and continue working together overcome this crisis. He also thanked the passion that all the winners put into the work that each one of them do quoting Steve Jobs: "the only way to do a good job is to love what you do".

Glamorous touch was put by the stylist Tomás Salcedo, who was in charge of the looks of the members of the organization, including awards director and the presenters of the night. The Awards’ management team wore impeccably tailored suits, designed by Félix Ramiro. The female staff, including the host of the gala, Raquel Castro, wore dresses created by the designer Benjamin Friman.
