After months of work, this "village" dedicated to the entertainments and the leisures, with its shopping malls, its restaurants and coffees, introduced a strong concept. Mega Mall opens its doors with the public. Its inauguration by SAR Prince Moulay Rachid shows of it all the importance symbolic system for the Capital. After months and months of work, this "village" dedicated to the entertainments and the leisures, with its shopping malls, its restaurants and coffees, introduced a strong concept.

As of the access, Valerie Guérend, director of the communication, underline the absence of great surface having to be used as commercial engine with the project. The stress is laid on shopping as much if not more on the entertainment and the leisures.

Built by an international group, Mega Mall accomodates a skating rink, a bowling and spaces dedicated to the children.

Conceived the standards of great surfaces of the centres town, Mega Mall cost a few 220 million dhs and required 2 years of work. The result is quite simply époustouflant. The skating rink, the first of the kind in Morocco, which extends on 800 m2 was carried out by Oxform, a French company specialized in the design, the manufacture and the management of the skating rinks. With it only, the skating rink constitutes an autonomous space with a capacity of 150 seats, a cafeteria and a lounge equipped with a screen plasma for the comfort of the spectators.

The skating rink is designed to also receive events like launchings of products. The site should support such a step: located in full heart of the Souissi district, on the Road of Zaer, the concept is made to allure, by its proximity, easy customers, with strong purchasing power and the spending patterns in phase with the project Mega Mall. Success near the franknesses is a reality and the shopping mall of Mega Mall accomodates already around fifty of Moroccan and international signs.

An originality and not of least and than "the merchandising of the commercial buildings was made so that each sign or activity have like vicinity of the signs or the complementary activities". On the question of the évènementiel, the press kit raises that "For the companies and professionals, the department communication of Mega Mall proposes a service of operations key-in-hand for launchings of products, evenings sets of themes, the organization of press conferences...". For animation, Mega Mall has a scene of 170 m2 at level 1, entirely cabled and visible of the two higher levels.

This space less proposes a capacity of step than 400 sitted places and "nearly 1000 people upright".
Conceived for the family, Mega Mall held a space children of 3000 m2, with spaces of plays and even a nursery. This space is studied "to release" the moms come to make races or the windows of the signs diversified and present in force of the shopping malls of Mega Mall.

The other must of this space of leisures for the family is the bowling, "A the time high level sport (2nd sport in the world by the number of bachelors) and entertainment more practised in the world".

For the teenagers, the cosmic bowling which mixes bowling and dance, with lights which electrify environment, the fun wants to be with go. The companies are invited to organize there seminars... and "tournaments for work's councils, school complexes"

It's the first one in Africa,opening of Mega Mall in Rabat at the end of April is the commercial event of the month. And due. 26.000 m2 with the service of hundred shops, 12 restaurants, a bowling of 12 tracks, a skating rink of 800 m2, a space children with horse-gears, toys, nursery, etc. The concept is clear: It's a true temple: With FDM,...... As for the shops, one knows there will be Bulgari, max Mara, Lancel, Marina Rinaldi, Parlons clothes, etc. Opened 7 day out of 7, Mega Mall is a small mental revolution which definitively places shopping in the signal five of the leisures.
- Mega Mall. Km 4.2 avenue Malik Imam - Road of Zaers – Souissi. Folds back.

I dont know much about their background but the Bulgarian and Moroccan royal families seem to be quite close. I have seen pictures of Princess Kalina and her husband at almost every major event involving the royals in Morocco, including state visits from foriegn royals, like the Spanish visit to Morocco earlier this year, or throne day etc. And she often wears traditional Moroccan caftans. Members from the two families also attend each others' weddings.
So that explains Princess Kalina's presence. I personally think its a good thing to see such friendships between different royal families.
I expect to help you with the little that of this topic.

Kitín Muñoz, husband of Kalima, is the one who organizes this festival of the cultures in collaboration with the UNESCO. The festival is celebrated in Morocco, I already have seen images of it several years.
As for the relation of the Royal Family of Morocco with that of Bulgaria, I am thinking about remembering that Simeón de Biulgaria was a friend and during a time adviser of the previous Moroccan king HassanII.
