International Sales Conference in Malta
This was the first ever Sales Conference for this global organisation, bringing together 500 internal sales professionals for the ultimate brainstorm session, in order to plan the new internal sales strategy for the coming year. The event lasted 5 days, allowing for cross-department networking events, idea exchanges, industry conferences, team building and plenty of entertainment. Malta proved itself once again to be the ideal destination for conference venues capable of catering to an event of this scale and variety.
“Thanks for shipping this Brian. And many thanks to you and your entire team for everything you did for the Sales Conference. No doubt we set a very high bar with this event. The compliments were too many to mention. Best regards, D”
Increased air access has dramatically benefited the MICE industry in the area, with a growing demand for the 5 star conference venues in the St. Julian’s Bay (only 20 minutes from the airport). For events professionals, the St. Julian’s cluster of luxury hotels conveniently situated in such close proximity to each other is a conference planner’s dream! Within a few minutes walking distance lies the Hilton, Excelsior, Westin, Radisson, and the impressive conference centre at the Intercontinental Hotel. Read more about Malta here..

Challenges, Solutions & Highlights
Malta suffers very little in regards to bad weather, but during the short winter months of November, December and January rainy days should be prepared for. On this particular occasion the team were quite unlucky with the weather forecast for the event dates. In order to counteract any potential issues however, it was arranged to have the branding service team onsite in order to ensure no damage was caused to signage and brand materials, and additional reinforcements ensured the brand name was still at the forefront of the guest experience.
