Conventions Malta has launched two new support schemes aimed at assisting and attracting more association conferences to the Maltese Islands.
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 such as submit their applications before the destination is chosen. Applications need to reach Conventions Malta by no later than 6 months prior to the start of the event.
Further detailsregarding these schemes are available at http://conventionsmalta.com/en-GB/page/conventions-malta/associations/12.
Supported by the Union of International Associations (UIA), the International Association of Professional Congress Organisers (IAPCO) and the Interel Group, the global public affairs and association management consultancy, Headquarters Magazines serve the needs of international associations organising worldwide congresses.
