International associations which do not have a representation in Malta and are considering bringing their meeting to the Islands can benefit from a subvention of €25 per international participant up to a maximum of €12,500 per event.

Similarly, local organisations looking to host international conferences and meetings in Malta will receive support of up to €6,500 and flights for decision makers visiting the Maltese Islands on a site inspection before choosing the destination.

Both schemes apply to events taking place between 2018 and 2020 and will offer other forms of assistance, such as gifts and resources to be used during the bidding process.

Events have to take place over a minimum of three nights and applicant organisations will need to meet specific eligibility criteria.

Conventions Malta was set up by the Malta Tourism Authority in 2015 to promote the Maltese Islands as a destination for meetings, conferences and incentives while working closely with trade partners to carry out research, planning, product development and quality assurance.
