Malta: The small island with big ambition. Look around you – Annually, SiGMA Europe attracts over 20,000 visitors to the Islands, leaving an incredible economic impact. The Islands’ location lends them the privilege of being the meeting point of the Mediterranean and with excellent connectivity coupled with hard-working, experienced event professionals, it’s easy to see why Malta is chosen by important organisations to meet here. As we like to say it, the Islands have been proven for centuries. Below are the reasons why the Maltese Islands continue to thrive and attract visitors from all over the globe.

Located at the centre of the Mediterranean and with over 100 direct flight connections, Malta is the ideal location for international meetings. Its strategic location within three hours of Europe’s main airport hubs makes it easily accessible from most major European cities. But that’s not all – Malta offers a wealth of benefits that make it the ideal destination for any corporate event.

One of the most significant advantages of Malta is that English is the official language, alongside Maltese. Plus, most of the population is multilingual, with Italian, French, German, and Spanish widely spoken. This makes communication seamless and makes it easy for everyone to feel comfortable and understood.

Hotel and meeting infrastructure in Malta is an aspect that planners rate highly. Most 5 and 4-star hotels have excellent meeting facilities equipped with the latest technology, plus a range of high-end amenities like on-site restaurants and wellness centres. And with short transfer times, no time is wasted during your stay – you can cross the entire island in less than an hour!

But that’s not all – Malta boasts around 300 days of sunshine and mild winters, with an average daytime temperature ranging from 10°C (50°F) in January to 32°C (90°F) in August. Organising an event during the winter months is totally viable, with a high possibility of getting some amazing winter sun.

Malta is also known for its professional and friendly hospitality industry, with experienced DMCs, creative caterers, and skilled AV suppliers who offer exceptional tailor-made services that are sure to make any event a success. Hospitality is part of the Maltese culture, so flexibility and a genuine service come as standard.

The Maltese Islands offer a diverse range of programme options, from sailing and kayaking to outdoor teambuilding activities, endless historical attractions, cultural events and wellness activities. Farm to fork concepts featuring local sustainable produce is always a winner, whilst other gastronomical discoveries and activities are plenty. The destination offers an exceptional variety of experiences that keeps attendees engaged and excited.

Malta offers the best of both worlds as a European and Mediterranean destination. Travel in the Schengen zone, pay in Euro, and take in the striking Mediterranean views and rich culture while enjoying world-class service.

With exciting new openings and constant upgrading of products and services, there’s always something new to discover. The islands are constantly getting new accommodation investments featuring some important international names, restaurants listed in the Michelin Guide and new boutique hotels set in precious heritage buildings. A local brewery, Farsons, has opened ‘The Brewhouse’- its old brewery, now transformed into a combination of beautiful meeting spaces, offices, and also hosting its own brewery tour.

 “The Maltese Islands may be small, but they do pack a punch. Both visitors and planners are always positively surprised at how much is on offer, and we’re really happy with the way the industry continues to develop its offer for international meetings and events.  Contact us to start planning your event or incentive trip in Malta today!”
