Today millions of people around the world were meant to gather together in parks, stadiums, city plazas, universities and schools to mark the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day! Under the current worldwide restrictions we won't be going out in person but we can still make our voice heard and rally together online #EarthDayNetwork. We encourage you to join us in one of the many virtual gatherings happening this week, either in your country or globally https://www.earthday.org/earth-day-2020/ Exactly one year ago we had successfully completed our internal training sessions with Global Green Events to create a sustainability policy for our office and our events. We spent the past year working hard with suppliers, hotels, NGOs and our community to provide more sustainable measures for our destination and within our industry. Beginning of this year we were all geared up with new food concepts, new eco-friendly activities, plant-based menus, a scheme to reduce plastic and food waste and an agreement to set off flight emissions with a local nature park by planting trees and maintaining them. We were encouraging all our clients to add value to their destination experience by adding a tailor-made CSR activity. We were excited to see all the positive reactions to our initiatives and were looking forward to a season full of challenging (and fun) events and incentives. The present situation has however left us challenged on a whole new level, but on a positive note we are finally breathing fresh air; in Malta alone air pollution has gone done by 70% compared to the same time last year. It has also given us the opportunity and time to slow down, re-evaluate and re-think travel and the meeting and incentive industry of tomorrow. If you are looking to #traveltomorrow and planning your next MICE event post pandemic, we would be more than happy to have a virtual drink with you and give exclusive insight on our destination and introduce you to our green meeting planner for Malta.

‘Do it Knightly’ is it a ‘must’ when planning an event, conference or incentive in Malta? Yes and no, we would say... with 7,000 years of extremely diverse and fascinating history and all major powers passing by and ruling our islands we would actually say the diversity of our past and present gives us the possibility to create all types of destination related themes, concepts and entertainment. Having said that, The Knights of the Order of St. John brought to Malta the so called Golden Age; over 200 years of flourishing architecture, arts, crafts and overall improvement to the Maltese Islands, making the Order undoubtedly a grand part of our history and leaving behind an amazing architectural contribution and our fascinating capital city Valletta, a baroque gem in Europe, today a UNESCO World Heritage Site and European Capital of Culture. Just as The Knights of St. John have left behind a wealth of heritage sites and historical venues and just as there are endless possibilities on themed corporate events and teambuilding activities in Malta, there is no limitation on how to ‘Do it Knightly’, add a modern twist, a trendy vibe, go super classy & elegant, it’s all grand and it all works.
