Over the past 20 years I have been involved in planning events across Europe. For 2014 we decided to hold our European Sales Conference in Malta in January.

We had reservations not least as there were concerns regarding the accessibility of the island during the winter months and that possibly Malta was not able to meet the conferencing requirements of such a large scale event.

I am delighted to report that this has been the best conference that we have staged to date. We had 800 delegates from 21 countries including North America – the flight schedules enabled all delegates to arrive on time with a choice of schedules. Malta has an extensive range of facilities to offer – with locations to meet every requirement.

Mark Gatt from EC Meetings has provided a service that has gone above and beyond anything I could have anticipated, and exceeded the service I have received from any other European DMC partner – his team are superb, and I single out from the EC team Chris and Susann who have ensured that transfers, accommodation, meetings, AV have been second to none.

Our conference ran for 7 days and included VIP meetings + dinners, exhibition, networking events and culminated in our annual awards banquet. As is normal during these conventions plans changed at short notice but the team at EC responded immediately to ensure that the execution of the event was flawless.

Mark, Chris, Susann – it has been a pleasure to work with you – I thank you and would have no hesitation to return to Malta.
