Smart City, Malta -- 8th May 2014

Awal Hotel, a 4-star boutique hotel located in the heart of Tripoli’s business district and catering for the needs of individual business travellers and delegations, was among the Libyan and Tunisian companies taking part in a one-day business event organised by The Malta Economic Update at Smart City, Malta.

The aim of the Malta-Tunisia-Libya B2B Networking Forum 2014 was to promote private enterprise and bring together all stakeholders of the Maltese business community that trade with Libya and Tunisia.

The Tunisian and Libyan Embassies in Malta also joined forces to help organise this initiative, which brings together The Economic Update’s business partners and interested entrepreneurs wanting to do business with Tunisia and Libya under one roof.

The event comprised a conference addressed by several keynote speakers, including Malta’s Minister for Tourism, Dr Edward Zammit Lewis, the Minister for Sustainable Development, Mr Leo Brincat, and the Chargé d’Affaires at the Libyan Embassy in Malta, Mr Huseen Benown. This was followed by a forum with open debate and networking activities among the participants.

The Awal Hotel’s stand drew significant attention among the attendees, including the aforementioned Ministers and the Malta Freeport CEO Mr Aaron Farrugia. The stand was also visited by a very good number of Maltese companies from a wide range of industry sectors to obtain more information about the location of Awal Hotel as well as its amenities that are of value to business travellers to Libya.

One of the services provided by Awal Hotel that was well-received by attending companies, particularly those interested in doing business in Libya for the first time, was the entry visa processing since this would facilitate considerably the ability of businesspeople to visit the country. Companies who participated in this event could also avail from Awal Hotel’s special promotion which offered free processing of a Libyan entry visa for online reservations of a minimum stay of three nights.

Awal Hotel, which currently ranks second on TripAdvisor’s list of top Tripoli hotels, is well-regarded by its past visitors for its safe, clean and charming environment, as well as its staff’s commitment to ensure that travelling business and corporate guests have all they need to make their stay in Libya’s capital both a productive and pleasurable experience.

Awal Hotel has recently made a significant investment in upgrading its internet infrastructure in order to offer a fast and reliable satellite internet connection to its guests. Moreover, airport transfers and other transport needs can easily be arranged.
