Cassander van Eerd, deputy MD, events at agency AddingValue, previously organised an event for Peugeot on the Maltese island and says it offers easy access from the UK, providing a great option for groups looking for something different.

"It's impressive how green it is and there is a lot of produce growing on the island," he says.

While Eerd says hotel stock on the island is limited - options include the 142-room Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz and the 83-room Hotel Ta' Cenc - there are plenty of activities on offer. Groups can enjoy welcome drinks at Ta' Mena vineyard, take a cruise around the island with a stop on sister island Comino for lunch and head out on jeep safaris.

For dining options, check out Patrick's Tmun in capital Victoria for private functions, and a fine-dining experience at Ta' Frenc, which has a range of spaces that can be privatised for events, including the private dining room for 22 and the courtyard for 350 seated.
