Hamburg Convention Bureau hosted its #SecretHamburg Showcase last night (22 October) at Barts bar, London, in partnership with C&IT.

The interactive evening event was designed to introduce event planners to the German city’s undiscovered venues and destinations.

Offering delegates the chance to network and meet suppliers, event planners had the opportunity to taste local food and drink.

Malta Tourism Authority hosted a group from C&IT's 2015 A List from 16-19 October for a luxury incentive trip to the Mediterranean island.

The trip kicked off with an opening dinner at the Westin Dragonara Resort at the hotel's Quadro restaurant, overlooking the sea. Other activities included a short walk through Valletta, Malta's capital city, Maltese bread baking, local wine tasting, a speed boat ride and a jeep tour.

The group stayed at the Radisson Blu, Malta St Julian's hotel, as well as the Hilton Hotel Malta, Westin Dragonara Resort and Corinthia Hotel St George's Bay.
