Feedback from participants included: 

"Malta is a hidden gem in the Mediterranean, and quickly becoming a sought after destination for event planners. Whether business, incentive or pleasure, the island and its surrounds offer a variety of activities and excursions which will really make any event memorable."- Cordy Maling, director, Limelight.

"The variety in Malta is exceptional. Its small size and network of transport (vintage buses and taxi boats) makes island hopping and swimming into secret coves, to touring the island of Gozo, to tasting local wines, a smooth exploration, taking in no time at all." - Maddie Clark, event manager, Active Consultancy.

"I knew very little about Malta prior to going on this trip but what preconceptions I had were well and truely changed. Really impressed with the facilities and range of activity for such a compact location.  Will certainly be on my shortlist from now on."- Phil Styles , The Neale Agency.

"Thank you so much to Chaya from Pearl Representation for proving to be a great host (and for inviting me in the first place), to Nic from the Malta Tourist Office for sharing so much info and history, to Francesca at the Intercontinental for looking after us and providing a wonderful room for the stay, and of course to Dorianne who packed everything in and made the whole event so enjoyable." - Andrew Swain, CEO, Evolution.
