Interested companies can begin signing up for this award from now until the end of March 5, 2019.


The evaluation process will take part in March 2019, and the awards ceremony will be organized in Hanoi in the end of April 2019.


This year is also the first time Vietnam has hosted the APICTA Awards.

The award is named after Venus because  the star is the second-brightest natural object in the night sky after the Moon.
