• Radware

    The Radware Conference took place in Malta at the end of October, and delegates had a blast of a time on the islands. Of course, there was the Conference to attend, where we took care of all the AV requirements for the main meeting room and breakout rooms, including projection and audio system. There were also 4 solution centres set up in the hotel, which were used during coffee breaks, and was where clients could show products to the participants in a clearer way. However, the conference was not the only event the group was looking forward to – we had two special evenings planned and we were ready to blow their mind. One evening, the delegates gathered in the hotel lobby and were grouped into one of the six languages covered for the entire stay in Malta. Together with licensed guides, these groups made their way to a tour of Valletta, stopping at the Saluting Battery at the Upper Barrakka Gardens for an aperitif, whilst enjoying the breath-taking view of the Grand Harbour. They then made their way to the Casino Maltese which was booked on exclusive basis for them. Built and utilised as the Treasury by the Knights of St. John, today the exclusive Casino Maltese retains most of its original 16th century features. A truly outstanding venue with a history of noble visitors, and of course the Radware Group. The set up for the evening consisted of lights being added to enhance the historical features of the building, an illuminated bar in the centre of the landing area, as well as illuminated bistro tables and white leather stools, brown rattan sofas and floral decorations and candles all along the stairs. Upon arrival, delegates were greeted by waiters serving canapés and sparkling wine.  They made their way upstairs to find casino tables and professional croupiers and then proceeded to play using the personalized fun money that had their company logo. Dinner consisted of buffet stations located around the casino, serving Paella, Chicken Shawarma and Noodles. The evening was complemented with an excellent 4 piece band and an open bar throughout the event. Afterwards, the group was accompanied to Hugo’s, one of Malta’s top clubs, which was also booked on exclusive basis for the group. The snack menu and open bar made for the ideal after dinner party. A shuttle service was also provided for those who wanted to return to the hotel earlier than the last transfer. The Gala Dinner at the Mediterranean Conference Centre was another memorable night. Coach transfers to the Sacra Infermeria were held, and the main road facing the Grand Harbour was closed to traffic, specifically for Radware. This street was decorated with fire torches and branded flags whilst the façade of the Sacra Infermeria was lit up with additional lighting and logo projections. The welcome aperitif was served in the street with animators including fire jugglers, noble couples in medieval costumes, lance bearers, torch bearers to entertain and mesmerize the group. After a welcome speech by the Master of Ceremonies also in medieval costume, clients were escorted to La Vallette Hall. After leaving jackets and the like with the cloakroom attendants, the group entered the hall to find tables dressed up in white and decorated with a red sash, red chair covers and floral posies on each table.  Screens were placed along the hall for better viewing of the entertainment during dinner. Before the first course, clients were entertained by a duo of well known local singers, followed by a Cabaret Dance Show before the main course. After the main, one of Malta’s most popular bands, Tribal gave an astounding performance and kept going throughout dessert. Following the dinner, an after party with a local DJ started,  with a regular shuttle service back to the hotel for clients with early departure flights.
