Discover Malta for your next event
MALTA …. MORE TO EXPLORE
From its North African and Arabic influences to the Sicilian-inspired cuisine, Malta is a microcosm of the Mediterranean. Few European countries have such concentrated history, architecture and, yes, beaches in so tiny an area.
Thanks to its geographical, economic and political strength, Malta offers a lot of advantages that might be attractive, to you, who are looking for a destination for the next event.
There’s been an eclectic mix of influences and a roll-call of rulers over the centuries, but be in no doubt: Malta is not just a notional outpost of Italy or a relic of colonial Britain. This island nation (all 316 sq km of it, comprising the islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino) has a quirky character all of its own. From prehistoric temples, to the baroque architecture of Valletta, feasts of rabbit to festas of noisy fireworks, rattling buses to colourful fishing boats, this nation has loads of unique charm.
EXPERIENCE OUR ROOTS
Petite Events is a Quality Assured Destination Management Company, fully licensed by the Malta Tourism Authority. Mauro Gasan, the Managing Director of the company, has over 20 years of experience in the field and opened the doors of Petite Events in the beginning of 2011.
The DNA of our team pushes us to see an opportunity where others see a challenge, which earned us the reputation of having a creative edge.
EXPERIENCE OUR IDENTITY
Malta is known for having 300 days of sunshine. We are the warmest country in Europe with an average annual temperature of 23 degrees Celsius during the day and 16 degrees Celsius during the night. The average sea temperature is of 20 degrees Celsius and summer weather can last up to 7 months.
Malta has been inhabited by the Phoenicians and Carthaginians, Romans, Greeks, Arabs, Normans, Aragonese, Knights of St.John, French and the British. All these foreign influences left a mark in the Maltese cultural history.
Malta historically has been a strategic outpost as it sits comfortably in the centre of the Mediterranean and offers quick flight connections to Europe (1-3hours), the Middle East and North Africa (1hour).
Food is very important for the Maltese. Maltese are very passionate about their food. They are very inspired by local produce and traditional recipes passed through generations; recipes which are influenced by neighbouring countries and its history, yet unique.
The island is 27 kilometres long and 14.5 kilometres wide, with a total area of 246 square kilometres; meaning that going from the furthest point from North West to South West will take you only 50 minutes by car.
NIGHTLIFE AND ENTERTAINMENT
In Malta you will find a number of clubs and pubs in various locations. We also have seasonal open-air clubs and yearly events such as the Isla of MTV, Malta Jazz Festival and much more.
THE ISLAND OF GOZO
Gozo is the second largest island in the archipelago and it is a lesser-known destination in Malta. You can get there by ferry, speedboats, gullets, sailing boats or by catamaran. It is a rural island and much quieter than Malta, which provides you with a more relaxed experience.
