  • DANONE

    Petite Events has been entrusted with the organization of the DANONE Dairy Convention hosting almost 250 guests coming to Malta from all around the world.

    The chosen hotel was the Intercontinental Hotel due to its big capacity but also due to the recently refurbished convention centre. An outstanding plenary space full of latest audiovisual equipment was built inside the Intercontinental Bay Arena.

    The convention was kicked off by a cocktail reception at the pool deck of the hotel Intercontinental accompanied by an open bar. The following day, after a whole day plenary session at the hotel, the delegates enjoyed a typical Maltese dinner at Gululu restaurant at Spinola Bay, reserved on exclusive basis. The menu shared various local dishes together with the most exquisite maltese wines.

    Wednesday the 2nd of September was dedicated to workshop sessions. In the morning the clients used 5 different break out rooms of Intercontinental Arena Conference Centre (IACC) followed by a transfer in coaches to Palazzo Parisio, an 18th century palace, where the workshops continued until late afternoon. A delicious lunch took place at the beautiful gardens of Palazzo Parisio prior to the lunch.

    The day ended up with a Hawaii themed BBQ dinner on the beach at St. George Bay which was decoration for the occasion with rattan sofas, cushions, carpets and lit-up decoration. A part of the beach was reserved as a dancing area animated by a well-known Maltese DJ.

    The next day, the group became familiar with Valletta through an iPad treasure hunt. During the activity, an electric cab was busy driving around the streets of Valletta providing the clients with cold water. The final point of the iPad treasure hunt was the Saluting Battery where an open bar was available to the clients while they were admiring the view to the Grand Harbor & the three cities.

    The gala dinner, which took place at Limestone Heritage, started off with an aperitif by the water cascade followed by a sumptuous 3-courses dinner on the lawn, underneath trees decorated with lanterns. The guests were then invited to join the live band on the dance floor followed by an after party area until the early morning. The dancing area was decorated with white leather sofas, candles, chandeliers & lit up bar. A shuttle service with minibuses was at the clients’ disposal all night long.
