Each year, the strength of brands is measured in several European countries, according to a cross-referenced analysis of their actual economic success in the relevant market and the emotional preference of consumers.

The event took place at the Théâtre des Sablons in Neuilly-sur-Seine, and brought together more than 300 decision-makers from business, marketing, communication and media. During the ceremony, Amazon, Google, Samsung and Michelin, closely followed by other successful French businesses, received awards.
