Thanks to its geographical, economical and political strength, Malta offers a lot of advantages that might be attractive, to you, who are looking for a destination for the next event.

With its North African and Arabic influences and cuisine inspired by Sicily, Malta captures the essence of the Mediterranean. Despite its small size, few European countries boast such a rich blend of history, architectural wonders and stunning beaches as are found in Malta.

Over the centuries, Malta has experienced a diverse, eclectic mix of influences and a succession of rulers, but it is important to recognise that this island nation is not merely an extension of Italy or a remnant of colonial Britain. Spanning just 316 square kilometres and comprising the islands of Malta, Gozo, and Comino, it has a distinct and eccentric character unlike anywhere else on Earth. From ancient temples to the baroque splendour of Valletta’s architecture, and from indulging in traditional feasts to celebrating vibrant firework-filled festas, and from the characterful buses to the colourful fishing boats, this tiny nation has an enormous personality and is full of unique charm.

You’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to finding things to do in Malta. Though small, the rock and limestone island plays host to many diverse and exciting festivals throughout the year. This is especially true in summer when visitors can enjoy the Mediterranean Food Festival, the Malta Fireworks Festival, as well as a Jazz Festival and, fabulously, a two-day event held so that attendees can help choose Malta’s representation at the Eurovision Song Contest. When you’re tired of the crowds, you can find many opportunities to relax and unwind on Gozo, or wander into the island’s interior to explore the famous megalithic ruins left by the indigenous cultures of Malta’s past.
