The SiGMA Europe show will now run from 16-18 November, and will be held at the MFCC, Malta after a surge in Covid-19 cases led to the temporary closure of Malta’s nightlife scene.
SiGMA Group has announced that its SiGMA Europe show, which was to be held in Malta this April, will be moved to November 16 -18, 2021, following the publication of new government measures for Malta’s entertainment scene.
In a press conference, Prime Minister Robert Abela announced today that they would be closing nightclubs, bars, and restaurants from March 5th until April 11th, after the number of cases for Covid-19 rose unexpectedly quickly.
The prime minister also said that mass organised events would be on hold, but that the government would continue to support businesses impacted by the measures.
Nonetheless, Abela emphasised his confidence in the future, pointing out the current rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine and reinforcing his commitment to continue working towards the country’s recovery.
SiGMA Group Founder, Eman Pulis, said:
“SiGMA in Malta was meant to happen this coming month in April, but with the new announcement that bars and restaurants will be closed until April, we were left with no choice but to push the show until November.
We welcome this decision, we believe in the safety of all our delegates. There’s no SiGMA without restaurants, without bars – that’s where all the magic in business networking happens. I look forward to seeing you in November, save the dates – I’ll see you in Malta”
