First Protocol s.a.r.l. has been organizing since 2011 the National Event, the Social Economic Award, that has been founded by Violette & Maroun Balaa.
The SEA is a leader in the award event industry with a unique concept in Lebanon and MENA region. It has gained regional credibility with it's leading brand and grandiose execution.
SEA is a pioneering initiative in the region that grants Awards to institutions for their CSR initiatives, in a Gala Dinner that gathers the Social & Economic Elite.
The presentation of awards is based on the idea of honoring leading Public and Private Institutions in:
Banking, Trade, Industry, Education and Franchising for developing concepts and products that promote Welfare, a better Environment, create Employment Offer, Preserve the Identity, History and Heritage and thus have a Positive National Impact, etc...
We believe that recognizing the endeavors of institutions from different categories in the Economic and Social Sectors will improve the state of the less fortunate and Positively reflect on the entire society.
Awards will be distributed across different sectors by Ministers, MPs, and prominent business figures.
The Jury consists of experts in the socio -economic fields. The selections will be based on transparent categorization according to international standards objectives. Following the screening and pre-selection of applicants, live presentation will take place in front of the Jury for accurate evaluations.
With vast media coverage, this event has gained credibility and awareness to an extent which makes it possible to duplicate in the entire region.
