The Maltese Islands have played host as a meeting destination for thousands of years ever since the shipwreck of St Paul! Whatever the size of the meeting or conference, Malta has the experience and the venues. In fact, the Maltese Islands offer a variety of historic castles, palaces and forts as function venues or, if one’s tastes are different, theme parks, village squares, luxury yachts, exclusive seafront locations and of course state-of-the-art conference hotels. The Maltese Islands are not only a place to meet but also the perfect location in which to do business since one can be on the Islands in under three hours from practically any European country. The Maltese Islands are serviced by an extensive network of international flight connections and under three hours flying time from major European gateways. The Islands’ small size also means that transfer times are kept to a minimum (typically just 25 minutes).
