A WORD FROM CHAIRMAN
Fiesta was a golden achievement in a grey era.
Despite the critical economic and political situation in Lebanon and the MENA region, Fiesta still holds outstanding records for hundreds of big projects, both locally and internationally, in various fields in the Event industry.
I strive to uphold the confidence of every investor in the field, prove that success doesn’t depend on resources only, that it requires motivation, persistence and belief.
Fiesta is a distinctive project that was first launched in 1994, and it all started with a balloon-printing machine.
Its success was never about the machine itself, neither the ink, nor the balloons. It was always about a dream beyond limits.
The diverse products and services, the mature concept, the solid identity, and professional management are what distinguished Fiesta Holding and insured continuity. This in return led to the creation of a successful business.
