As part of the BBC's Electric Proms concert series of concerts, Robbie Williams was transmitted live to more than 250 venues in 23 countries setting a Guinness World Record for the most simultaneous screenings of a live concert. Mivan put Romania on the list by ensuring that The Light Cinema at Mivan’s Liberty Center in Bucharest was included in the successful negotiations for the live transmission. John Sullivan, Director of The Light Cinema said: “This is yet another example of the benefits of our fully digital technology. “We sold out the concert in less than 30 minutes and it endorses our commitment to the Romanian market and the emergence of Liberty Center as a premier retail and leisure destination in central Bucharest”. Robbie Williams, speaking to the BBC said: “It’s very exciting to think that a one-off performance I play in London can now be seen simultaneously by people all across the world”. The Light Cinema at Liberty Center is Romania’s first fully digital cinema. The Robbie Williams concert was part of the run-up to the first anniversary of Mivan’s Liberty Center which opened on 31 October 2008. The 25,000sqm shopping mall in central Bucharest boasts over 100 stores including Marks & Spencer, Next, Tom Tailor, Sprider, Migato, Adidas, Lacoste, Champion, Altex and Hervis. The mall also has an extensive food court and ice skating rink. Despite the retail downturn affecting most of Europe, Liberty Center is currently around 95% occupied and just last week won an award at the European Property Awards in London in the highly competitive Retail category. The Mivan Group is one of the world’s leading specialist construction companies and celebrates its 35th anniversary in 2010. With offices in the UK, Europe and Middle East, Mivan has completed Interiors & Theming, Property Development & General Contracting projects in around 40 countries.
