The "Best Digital Advertising Operator" award, on the other hand, rewards the growth of Sparkle's brand awareness thanks to its integrated communication strategy aimed at strengthening the identity of the company through multiple platforms and a diversified content mix, digital PR activities and targeted advertising campaigns.

In this context, the jury acknowledged in particular Sparkle’s “The Global Backbone Experience” (TGBE), an interactive website - with no equals in the industry – launched in June 2020 and promoting the company’s global network - a 600,000 km fiber-optic intelligent system featuring the latest technology to deliver sophisticated communications - in continuity with "The World's Communication Network" campaign launched in 2019.

Fully integrated with the corporate website, TGBE shows a detailed view of Sparkle’s global network and assets through a top-quality, dynamic and engaging browsing experience. The website also features an easy search tool by location and a complete and comprehensive view of the services offered, with contact form to request information/quotations. Besides its communication purposes, TGBE has proven to be also a very effective tool for Sparkle’s sales force and a highly appreciated showcase among the company’s customers and partners.
