On Tuesday, 23rd February, 2010, the Interdiocesan Organising Committee and the National Organising Committee of the Pope’s visit to Malta organised a Press Briefing for Editors of local news agencies. During this well attended business breakfast, news editors were free to ask questions and mention their suggestions on the media arrangements for the Pope’s visit to Malta. The Archbishop’s delegate for Social Communications, Fr Charles Tabone O.P, and the Director General of the Department of Information, Mr Martin Bugelli, invited representatives of television, radio and print media to participate in a series of weekly press briefings to be held in the coming weeks as part of the build up leading to the Pope Benedict XVI’s visit to Malta. Since this event was held at the Excelsior hotel, News Editors were taken to see the large hall which will host the Press Centre.
