The Maltese archipelago, made up of the three islands - Malta, Gozo and Comino - is ideally located at the crossroads of the Mediterranean.
This fact has resulted in the islands being conquered by various empires throughout history. In 1800 the islands formed part of the British Empire, in 1964 Malta gained its Independence.
Throughout history Malta has been at the heart of world events. Our islands have been a haven, battleground, home and refuge to a host of famous figures through eras of European history. We have absorbed and learned from all of these experiences. It is essence of our history, which has helped forge our unique Maltese character.
The total population of the islands is 380,000 and the official languages are Maltese and English, although most Maltese are fluent in other languages such as Italian, French and German.
Malta offers some of the best hotels, sophisticated conference and convention venues, ultra-modern communications and outstanding opportunities.
The longest travelling time to or from any European city is three hours. Once landed at Malta International Airport the transfer to hotels takes a maximum of 30 minutes to the farthest point of the island.
The island of Gozo can be reached in a 30-minute ferry crossing.
Malta means business in all sorts of ways, and more than ever in the professional services provided to its visitors. The warmth of Maltese hospitality is renowned, and the whole emphasis is placed on ensuring that your conference, convention and incentive travel event is a resounding success.
