A glamorous award ceremony in the heart of Manhattan: the Marriot Marquis Hotel


Jose E. Prieto, president of Business Initiative Directions (B.I.D.), poses with some of the award-winners.

Tuxedoes, bow-ties and cuff-links for the men. Long gowns for the women. That’s what the occasion calls for.

If elegance is an attitude, yesterday the attendees of the Gala dinner at the International Quality Summit 2013 convention in New York made it clear that glamour and fashion are totally compatible with excellence.

The winners of the Quality Award presented by B.I.D. showed off their best attire first in the photocall, and later in the gala dinner celebrated at the Marriott Marquis in Manhattan.
