Venue

MFCC, ta' Qali, established in October 2006, is a multi-purpose venue.  Located in Ta'Qali, which is very close to Rabat and Mdina in the centre of the island, MFCC  is the largest indoor venue in Malta and hosts a number of yearly events including concerts, exhibitions, conferences and much more.

The venue MFCC was set up using a semi-permanent structure previously used as the UK’s Wembley Arena Pavilion.  The Tension Fabric Structure (TFS) is 130 metres long, 50 metres wide and 17 metres high and can hold 10,000 people seated or 22,000 standing.

MFCC provides an event space that avoids the hindrance of columns and support structures, which from an event perspective only obstruct the way.  The venue is ideal for conventions that are looking for a flexible option, where a conference set up during the day can be adapted to a gala dinner or concert set up in the evening, with the capacity to hold up to 22,000 people.

 

The TFS is the result of some of the UK’s leading semi-permanent structure designers’ research, creating a venue which is essentially temporary, but is built to conform to permanent building regulations.

The unique product design of the TFS offers an impressive structure with the fabric tensioned in both horizontal and vertical directions to create a clean taut finish with black PVC inside and silver finish outside. The TFS is designed to withstand many years of usage, unlike any other temporary building.
This outer fabric on the structure is created anti-UV, which makes it more resistant against colour changes and ageing, and is also treated with anti-crypto, which makes it more resistant against mildew and fungus.

Advantages:

- The sheer size of the structure allows it to be used for huge scale events
- The structure is not affected by wind movement, normally associated with wide span traditional alu-halls
- The gable heights offer a versatile area to display graphic designs for advertising – this service can be arranged internally
- The structure conforms to British European and American building regulations for stability and fire safety
- It’s overall height offers the opportunity to supply mezzanine floors as requested
- A secondary membrane has been installed to further improve sound and heat insulation
