Since, it will be held virtually through a platform such as Zoom, the audience that will attend the event will be composed of children, youths, parents and partners from different cities of Ecuador such as Quito, Lago Agrio, Esmeraldas, Ibarra, Tulcan, among others, and from other parts of the world as well.
