To ensure that the awards are presented on a fair basis, the results of the survey are evaluated in four different sales categories. Service providers were then assigned to one of these categories according to the annual turnover they generated in the DACH region in 2021. Awards were given to the three top-ranked service providers in each sales class[1]. The ceremony took place in Munich on 1 June 2022.
