Señorita México was the name of a national beauty pageant in Mexico, celebrated since 1952. After 2005, the pageant changed its name to "Miss Mexico". From 1952 to 1994, was the official pageant responsible for sending the country's representatives to the Miss Universe, Miss World, Miss International and other international pageants. After the crowning of Lupita Jones, as the country's first Miss Universe, a dispute between Miss Jones and the pageant organizers over overdued prizes, led to a break of the longtime association between the pageant and the broadcast network Televisa.[1] When the pageant moved to another network TV Azteca, a competing pageant called "Nuestra Belleza México" was created, later directed by Miss Jones with the sponsorship of the Televisa TV Network. in 1994 Señorita México lost the bid to Nuestra Belleza México to be the official pageant for the Miss Universe pageant. Later Nuestra Belleza México also obtained the rights of sending Mexico's representatives to Miss World and Miss International. However, the "Miss Mexico" pageant still sends representatives to other international pageants. The trade name Señorita Mexico was trademarked in the United States, by Venezuelan Entrepreneur Adan S. Perez CEO of The Miss Mexico Organization with headquarters in Las Vegas Nevada who produces The Señorita Mexico U.S. beauty pageant. He developed a franchise system in every state of The Union to bring girls from all over the United States to compete in national beauty event which takes place every year in Las Vegas. Adan Perez has been producing the national competition Señorita Mexico U.S in Las Vegas, since the year of 2003.
