An industry-backed recognition
Anselmo Romero, CEO of Convergint-Mexico and winner in 2023, highlights the importance of the recognition granted by CALA in the Latin American region. "For Convergint in LATAM, these awards reflect its daily commitment to being the best service provider for its customers," says Romero. "To be valued by both industry experts and those who appreciate the quality and complexity of our projects is an honor." He thanked IntegraTEC and AVI Latin America for their role in the selection and evaluation of these awards.

Two Categories to Celebrate Excellence
