Financial support will be capped at £20 per person attending the event, with a maximum support of £8,000 towards any one event.
The MTA can provide promotional material and corporate pillow gifts for conference speakers.
To be eligible for support, events must have a minimum duration of three nights in Malta or Gozo with a minimum of 50 foreign participants per night.
Events must also take place between the months of January to March and November to December 2013.
Requests will be funded on a first-come-first-served basis.
As per the terms and conditions, the association requesting MTA support must engage the services of a Destination Management Company (licensed by the MTA) to organise the event.
Associations that are interested in applying for support should do so via the appointed DMC to the MTA MICE Segment with details of hotel rooms required, full event programme, DMC details and a written declaration (signed by the CEO or head of the association and the DMC) stating that the association is not claiming other financial support from other Maltese Government departments or authorities.
If the scheme is successful, it may be repeated in 2014.
