“We’re so pleased that the UK has moved to the Maltese amber list now for travel,” Lindsey Thorpe MICE Manager UK & Ireland, CONVENTIONS MALTA, tells BNC.
“This will surely give event planners confidence that we are a safe country to visit and they can start looking at the destination for future RFPs.”
“The MICE Business scheme is a fantastic offer and we’re so lucky to have the support from our government.”
“Being an island nation we’re seen as a ‘safe’ destination and we can’t wait to welcome the UK market back for events. Vaccinations are happening fast, testing is in place and the venues and suppliers are ready to go. We’re very hopeful that we’ll see a quick recovery of the industry in Malta.”
Applications to participate in the Maltese Support Programme can be submitted online at www.bit.ly/micescheme.
Each event can only be supported once and the grant will only be paid after the completion of the event. To be eligible for funding, the group size of the event must be more than 10 delegates and involve a minimum stay of two nights in Malta or Gozo. In addition, the event programme must promote Malta, Gozo and Comino in the best possible way.
Assistance under this scheme is subject to approval and will be granted at the sole discretion of the Malta Tourism Authority.
