We had the pleasure of hosting the European People’s Party Congress 2017 between the 29th & 30th March. This was the annual meeting of the European People’s Party, a transnational organisation composed of various political parties from most EU states.
This annual meeting is held to amongst their members, observers, & associates from across Europe, to discuss various issues, including the current state of the European Union, including challenges and goals that Europe is facing – and analysing global and European trends.
765 delegates, 495 members of respective parties within the delegation and a substantial number of foreign journalists called InterContinental Malta home for two days, making use of all available conference and event space of the hotel, with the main meetings taking place in the InterContinental Arena Conference Centre.
Over the two days, we served over 2,000 sandwiches, 3,000 meals and 8,500 drinks, including tea, coffee, and water.
The event hosted 66 VIP guests; including Angela Merkel, Nicos Anastasiades, Klaus Iohannis, Enda Kenny, Victor Orban, Andrej Plenkovic, Mariano Rajoy; and various other EU Heads of State & Government, Presidents of EU institutions, EU Deputy Prime Ministers and Ministers, EU Opposition leaders and Party leaders, Local Opposition leaders and Party leaders.
