QLZH & QLC Awards Night
The teams at QuickLets (ql.mt), Zanzi Homes (zh.mt) and QLC (qlc.com.mt) came together on a very special night to celebrate the new year as well as the outstanding achievers of 2022. The yearly awards night was one to remember for its guests with a full array of entertainment put together to give the occasion the magic it deserves.
The organizing team selected the Mediterranean Conference Centre at Valletta to host the event; a nod to Malta’s rich history and outstanding architecture showcasing the love that the brands have for the island and real estate. Arriving at the venue, guests were welcomed by three members of the Administration Team dressed in 17th-century costumes ushering them in as well as a fire spinning show. Descending the red-carpeted grand staircase, guests enjoyed an acrobatic show against a backdrop of a burning fireplace before entering the main hall which featured jugglers and illusionists.
“When we started conceptualising the event, we were determined to organise more than just an event, and to deliver an experience to our guests, something that would stimulate the senses”, says Fabio Zuccaro, Group COO and member of the organizing team. “Our awards night is a celebration of the tireless work our teams put in throughout the previous year and the event we deliver must recognize their efforts”, he continues.
As the red curtain was drawn, the popular Maltese singer, Kurt Calleja opened the Awards ceremony delivering “We Are The Champions” by Queen, an anthem used by the team every year for this occasion. Popular TV presenter, Pauline Agius hosted the night and called on the stage one award winner after the other. Around one-hundred awards were dished out to the deserved recipients, ranging from metrics-driven ones as well as special awards recognizing the contribution individuals made to the brands that go beyond renting and selling, such as the Social Heart Award, the Brand Ambassadors, and the Culture Champion.
“We are in our 10th year of operation as a group and we have grown tremendously fast, an achievement we fully credit to our Franchise Owners, Property Specialists and Administration Team, together with our loyal clients”, says Steve Mercieca, Group CEO and Co-Founder, “this yearly appointment overwhelms me each time and gives me immense joy in rewarding individuals that stood out through their grit, passion and dedication”, he continues.
