Incorvaja joined the Malta Tourism Authority in 2009 after spending seven years as director of sales and marketing at the InterContinental Malta hotel.

Incorvaja told C&IT: "I've been at the Malta Tourism Authority for six years and I felt like it was time to move onto new pastures. The UK travel market to Malta has grown by 17.5% over the last five years, which has been remarkable considering that the travel industry has had a challenging few years overall.

"Malta caters fantastically for the MICE market, which I think has contributed to our success. Moving forward, I am optimistic that these trends will continue."

The Malta Tourism Authority has revealed that the hunt for Incorvaja’s replacement is underway.

Earlier today, the Switzerland Convention & Incentive Bureau (SCIB) announced that Claudio Zemp, MICE manager for UK and Ireland, will leave the UK market to take on a new role in India next month (May).
