Summer is here, and events are back with a bang.

Summer is here, and events are back with a bang.

After two years of COVID-19 restrictions, mass social events are back. Now that restrictions have been lifted, people are happily ditching virtual gatherings for physical shared events. Unsurprisingly, Malta is experiencing an overwhelming desire to re-connect, and thankfully Maltese summers offer the best backdrop for music festivals, concerts, legendary parties, festas, sports events, tournaments, and anything that spells fun, fun, fun.

Most summer events in Malta are held at temporary venues such as public open spaces, hotels, parks, and expo centres, and in today’s digital world people wish to remain constantly connected to share their emotions and experiences instantly, wherever they are.

This voluntary instant sharing is a great opportunity for organisers to give their event the highest possible exposure on social media, and to promote future events to potential audiences. A fast and efficient internet network also enables streaming of live events, wireless POS terminals, and other backend services such as wireless and touchless ticketing systems.

Deploying a temporary but reliable data network takes some serious know-how and experience. Every event is different requiring its own bespoke solution. This includes deciding on the best type of connectivity, identifying the right internet bandwidth required, optimisation of the WiFi network design, and having the appropriate hardware infrastructure. In some cases, such solutions also require in-depth reporting, analytics, and delicate network management.   

Melita specialises in providing comprehensive infrastructures for temporary events, and because we understand how important connectivity is during such events, we back up all our offerings with premium Service Level Agreements (SLA) – a contract between Melita and the client outlining the expected levels of service that we are obligated to meet. It also defines performance expectations and other terms and conditions including means of redressing service issues.

3 reasons why Melita is best placed to provide summer events connectivity

1 – We’re everywhere 

Melita’s has a fully redundant nationwide fibre optic network which means that our fibre internet is already available at major hotels, expo centres and public squares. With this major part of the infrastructure already in place, connectivity can be provided quicker and in the most cost-effective way.

2 – We’ve got you

We provide unparalleled dedicated support. A dedicated team is available before, during, and after the event itself offering 24/7 technical support and monitoring.

3 – No second chance

Events get one chance to make a good impression, so having something go wrong with connectivity is not an option. Melita’s international gateway makes its connectivity super reliable through multiple in-built redundancy elements.  

Festivals and big events require more IT requirements than you can imagine. With our years of experience, expertise, and state-of-the-art infrastructure, we will guide you through every possible setting to ensure that your event is successful, memorable, and as stress-free as possible.
