Summer Event - Trelleborg Sealing Solutions – Verdala Palace, Buskett, Malta – June 2016
The concept took guests on a journey of discovery centered around the 15th century Verdala Palace, the official summer residence of the President of Malta, built by Grand Master de Verdalle in 1586 on a site surrounding the woodland of Buskett, which was used by the Knights for game hunting. The Experience started at the entrance to the Palace, where guests walked through the palace’s hall and photos taken followed by cocktails and champagne. The company wanted to combine its 55-year anniversary with the retirement farewell celebrations of Louis Farrugia’s 44 years with Trelleborg. Over 900 guests attended, the charming reception included a 5 piece band, dancing and flowing food and drinks. The palace had a magical atmosphere decorated with real flames and warm ambiance lighting of violet, golden, and purple making the place look like something out of a fairy tale.
