The opening cocktail, sponsored by Russian Developer Tashir, was a huge success, inviting participants from all over the world to kick off MAPIC in a vibrant social setting in the beautiful Majestic Hotel. The Russian country of honour logo was all aglow on the facade of the building, emphasising their important presence here this year. Their was much buzz about the Diamond Party hosted by Tashir, as they distributed glasses of champagne with a ‘sparkling diamond’ inside. Participants then hurried to diamond experts to verify the authenticity of the sparkling gem. There were 8 lucky winners who walked away with the real deal!
