Mr Farrugia was invited to give a Master Class during the recent international conference organised by the Mediterranean Tourism Foundation. The subject of his presentation was on how RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology can be used in the tourism sector to improve the tourist’s experience and increase the operator’s efficiency – both those working in hotels and restaurants and in the sector of tourist accommodation.
The Master Class was well attended, and Mr Farrugia received valuable feedback. Among those who attended the conference was the King of Ghana, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II. Since HandsOn Systems have strong business interests in Ghana, they took the opportunity to present a portrait of the King, executed by local artists Maris Zammit. “This helped to show that we want to continue to strengthen our presence and dedication towards the Ghana market,” Mr Farrugia said.
In fact, HandsOn Systems have recently attracted investment from a Ghana businessman, Nicky Wilson of Cape3, in their subsidiary company in Ghana. “In this way, we are continuing to strengthen our presence and persist in our efforts to succeed in Ghana. Through this conference, we strengthened both the cultural aspect of Ghana in Malta and the commercial relations our company has with Ghana,” Mr Farrugia said.
