Visit Malta Incentives and Meetings ⠀⠀⠀⠀ The ‎‎‎Meeting Point of the Mediterranean

With 300 days of sunshine a year, the Maltese Islands has tourism infrastructure that is open all year round offering event organisers the opportunity to hold events in any season of the year.

Locations across Malta have recently been showcased on the big screen in Jurassic World Dominion, one of many blockbusters filmed in the Maltese Islands, hopefully giving inspiration to incentive planners for some Dinosaur themed adventures in the future; Valletta, Birgu and Pembroke were all captured within the movie

Valletta

You can look to an abundance of venues within the Capital City of Valletta including Casino Maltese, built in the 16th Century as a treasury, with its grand staircase up to the event space and central location overlooking the St Georges Square, it’s an ideal location for a gala dinner or conference.


The Saluting Battery with a panoramic view across to the Three Cities is an ideal outdoor dinner and reception venue as delegates can watch the sun setting and the movement of boats and ships in and around the harbour.


St John Co-Cathedral built by the Order of the Knights of St John and completed in 1577 is a must see for delegates whilst in Valletta, allowing time to visit the world famous Caravaggio paintings located within the building.

Birgu

Across the harbour from the Capital City is Birgu; a fortified city built between the 16th – 18th Centuries. Delegates can explore this historic area either by foot or, on The Rolling Geeks, take a break in one of the local coffee shops in the main square or a visit to the village bakery for a snack.

Fort St Angelo located at the tip of the Peninsula of Birgu has been an icon for centuries in Malta and now offers groups the opportunity to host an event within its historic walls where they can enjoy the panoramic view of Valletta across the harbour.


The Maritime Museum located on the waterfront was previously the location of the Old Naval Bakery and stores up to 7,000 years of Malta’s maritimes history. The event space located on the first floor makes a great location for a lunch or dinner event overlooking the harbour, which includes an outdoor terrace area for those wishing to enjoy the view further.
Villa Bighi is a third venue located in Kalkara just next to Birgu and was used as a hospital in the 19th Century. The venue can host up to 1,000 pax standing and has a cot lift that can be used if groups arrive at the venue by boat.

 

Pembroke

Located just next to St Julian’s, Pembroke was previously the location of the British Barracks from 1860, a few of these military buildings remain but the area is now known for its numerous schools which have spaces that can be used by event planners on request.


When staying in St Julian’s, Pembroke is also a lovely area for delegates to explore if they are looking for a jog or swim along the coastline.

The Maltese people pride themselves on their warm welcome to global delegates and tourists.
For the seventh year in a row, Malta also continues to occupy the number one spot on the ILGA Rainbow Europe Map, with a score of 92% Rainbow Europe – ILGA-Europe and is looking forward to hosting EuroPride in Valletta in September 2023 https://www.europride2023.mt/
