Malta is a bustling city rich with history, culture and an international hub where people have ample opportunities for business and quality of life. With sun shining 300 days a year and an exciting mix of activities, Malta is an excellent destination to host your next event or conference.          

To guide event organisers with finding the perfect Malta event or conference venue, we compiled a list of unique and reputable venues ideal for conferences, events, networking and corporate gatherings.

Things to consider when choosing an Event Venue in Malta

When searching for a venue to host your conference or event in Malta, there are a number of things you should consider for the best experience possible.

Size of the Venue

First thing to consider is the number of people that will be attending the event. You have to check the capacity of the venue and ensure that you have just the right amount of space. If you plan on having50 people at your event, you should hire a venue that holds 70. Furthermore, you have to consider whether the guests attending will be seated or standing.The physical size of the venue makes a significant difference, and it is always recommended to visit the venue yourself before booking.


When planning an event, it is very easy to over exceed your budget. The venue is one of the costliest things when hosting an event, therefore, some careful planning is required. Consider the time of year you are hosting your event. In the summer seasons, venues are likely to cost more.


The main reason why this should be taken into consideration is to understand how easy or difficult it is for the guests to arrive to the venue. If you have incoming guests from abroad, it is wise to choose somewhere accessible and easy to find.

Additional Services

Most venues mentioned below provide their own catering services, and this is usually the recommended option. Alternatively, you can also hire your own catering services. Apart from that, do you need to bring your own technical equipment or clean-up crew? If the venue provides such services, this is likely to save you a lot of time. You will have most of the services required in one place and have to deal with one company rather than one for each service required.
