RE/MAX Malta hosts annual convention online

Updated on

The 2021 Convention was the first to be hosted exclusively online by the real estate giant, following a major investment in quality

RE/MAX Malta has hosted its highly anticipated Annual Convention 2021 in a spectacular online event.

Overcoming the obstacles presented by COVID-19 restrictions, Malta’s leading real estate brand invested heavily in the virtual event held on Wednesday 14 April to ensure that it maintained the same exceptionally high standards set by its previous in-person editions.

“We are proud to have yet again shown our determination by being one of the few real estate companies in Malta to host an Annual Convention against all the odds this year,” says RE/MAX Malta CEO Jeffrey Buttigieg. “We spared no expense in making sure that this online event was as celebratory and motivational for everyone on the RE/MAX Malta team, as they have come to expect from our Annual Convention. And they deserve to be rewarded for their hard work and dedication, now more than ever during these difficult times of the pandemic.”

From its state-of-the-art set up, which included three cameras and a sound stage with television-style production values, the event kick-started with a welcome by its host, DJ and business leader Gianni Zammit.

RE/MAX Malta Chairman Kevin Buttigieg was introduced for an inspiring opening speech in which he celebrated the resilience of the real estate industry – and of the RE/MAX Malta team – throughout the pandemic. “The COVID-19 situation has brought challenging times, but it has brought opportunity as well,” he shared in his speech. “The results prove that our industry has been very resilient, and I want to thank all of you who contribute and come up with new ideas every day to make this happen. We are creating a better industry for ourselves and our customers.”

The concept of resilience was continued by Jeffrey Buttigieg in his speech outlining the highlights of the year 2020, supported by statistics shared by General Manager Josie Theuma and Regional Letting Manager Edward Agius. “One of the most exhausting aspects of this pandemic has been the new challenges it has brought every day, or a new hill to climb,” he recalled at the Convention. “But we didn’t buckle. We regrouped, discussed the strategy with franchise owners and managers and our trainers. We inspired each other, retrained, and bonded as a team.”

Following a fun and entertaining segue by Mr Zammit, the accomplishments of the brand’s top achievers were celebrated with winner certificates across the five categorised performance groups of Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond.

The programme paused for a personal moment, when the RE/MAX Malta team surprised Office Manager Carmen Valletta with an emotional video in dedication to her extraordinary work during a time when her family faced serious health challenges.

As per tradition in the Annual Convention, the event closed with nominees and winners being presented with trophies across a series of prestigious awards. Since the event was hosted digitally, this hotly anticipated custom took on an extra dimension of excitement as all nominees were invited to be physically present, without any prior knowledge of the winners.
