Malta is more popular than ever among holidaymakers and business travellers, but with growth comes increased responsibility to manage the sector in a more sustainable manner, says Martin van Kan, Area General Manager of InterContinental Hotels & Resorts.
The hospitality of the Maltese is second to none, however, the country’s main tourism school needs an upgrade if the industry’s professionals want to keep up with the more refined tourist cohort landing in Malta. Tourism Minister, Dr Edward Zammit Lewis explains that help is on its way.
Parliamentary Secretary Chris Agius explores the infrastructural projects needed to develop Malta's sport offering, making it clear that while sports enthusiasts deserve better facilities, the environment needs to be given due consideration.
Despite Malta’s record-breaking growth in tourism, the Malta Tourism Authority is focusing on new markets and niche areas to bring more people to the islands. With a calendar of over 250 events taking place throughout the year, there is no shortage of things to see and do, MTA CEO Paul Bugeja tells MaltaProfile.
The island's Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Events (MICE) sector increasingly competes for hotel rooms and facilities with other segments of Malta’s booming tourism industry, Kenneth Baldacchino, Managing Director of Event Solutions Malta, tells MaltaProfile.
