VisitMalta Incentives & Meetings – ITALIA

Conosciamo le DMC: Colours of Malta, il valore di un operatore per la meeting industry.

DMC sono una risorsa per l’intero sistema turistico.
Sono loro il trait d’union con il territorio, anche per la meeting industry.
Ne è un esempio Colours of Malta, un DMC maltese specializzato nel segmento Mice che da 25 anni consente di pianificare con cura e dedizione eventi corporate, meeting e congressi.

I DMC (Destination Management Company) rivestono un’importanza fondamentale nel sistema di funzionamento del sistema turistico. Sono il punto di contatto con il territorio, con ciò che una destinazione offre, e permettono di immergersi appieno in ogni luogo.

Colours of Malta, un DMC per conoscere le sfumature dell’arcipelago.

Amare ciò che si fa, amare il proprio lavoro e puntare all’eccellenza. È questo il modo di pensare con cui Colours of Malta approccia il mercato e opera giorno dopo giorno dal 1997. Un DMC maltese che unisce efficienza e attenzione alle richieste del cliente, soprattutto laddove queste siano articolate e dunque ogni particolare faccia la differenza. Da 25 anni Colours of Malta si presenta come un’azienda fortemente orientata al segmento Mice (conferenze e incentive) con un ventaglio di proposte molto ampio, un team poliglotta e tanta creatività. Che si tratti di allestire una cena di gala con un tocco unconventional o di suggerire attività cariche di adrenalina, questo DMC sa disegnare un’esperienza su misura per potere scoprire Malta…oltre ogni aspettativa!
Nel tempo la passione si è evoluta in dedizione, numerosi i clienti soddisfatti e una voglia di crescere e migliorarsi che mai si esaurisce. Essere degli ‘event designer’ a Malta significa potere spaziare tra natura e storia, buon cibo e vita notturna: un piccolo mondo che cambia pur mantenendo intatta la propria autenticità…e Colours of Malta sa bene come coglierne ogni sfumatura.

Our expertise has allowed us to work with high profile incentive houses, congress organizers, pharmaceutical, telecommunications and manufacturing multinationals.
Operations Executive
Main Role:
The Operations Executive has a role of key importance as a team member of Colours of Malta. The main duties consist in direct contact with the client and with our main suppliers. The objective is direct communication with both suppliers and clients and to guarantee the best services and prices available to complete the event according to the client’s specifications.

Your main responsibility is to receive and create outstanding proposals for group requests interested in hosting their event in Malta. This is where your sales skills must shine, as you’ll need to sell and upsell all the services available. Services include but are not limited to hotel bookings, airport transfers, transportation, restaurants, entertainment and activities. This is done through suppliers, many of which we have a long-standing relationship with.
Operations duties and responsibilities:

The role involves assisting the client when they are on site and to guarantee that all services are provided to the group as specified in the approved proposal. The main responsibilities are to communicate with the suppliers involved in that group, to try to achieve maximum efficiency. Quick, smart and effective decision-making skills are often required so as to always provide the best solutions to the client when things don’t go as planned or when problems arise. During the organisation and actual operation of the event, there will be various Colours of Malta team members to liaise and coordinate with so as to ensure a smooth and successful event outcome.

2023 Hosts Global Forum Destination Has Been Announced

Hosts Global, together with Hosts Global Affiliate Colours of Malta, announced they will be heading to Malta in 2023 for the next Hosts Global Forum. Steeped in over 7,000 years of history, and having played host to the Romans, Phoenicians and the Knights of St John, Malta will also play host to the 9th annual Hosts Global Forum in this idyllic archipelago.

Hosts Global Forum in San Antonio, Texas

The 8th annual Hosts Global Forum was held in San Antonio, Texas and Hosts Global members together with 70 clients from around the world connected and learnt what’s new, what’s next, and what’s notable in the event industry. This event was held at Hotel Valencia Riverwalk San Antonio between the 7th and 10th of September, 2022.

Hosts Global chose San Antonio as its featured destination because of its vibrant and diverse culture and history. A city of constant transformation, bursting with new attractions, revitalized historic sites, and seasonal events. Hosts Texas took guests on a ride of culture, cuisine, and curated experiences that showed how San Antonio is thriving as a meeting & incentive destination.

Hosts Global thoughtfully and intentionally implemented multiple sustainability efforts for the Hosts Global Forum. Over 1,000 trees were planted and 164,100 kgs of carbon emissions were removed through investments into renewable energy projects. Another interesting, sustainable effort consisted of providing all guests with water bottles that tracked how guests impacted the environment through reuse by scanning a QR code every time they refilled their reusable water bottle. Each scan helped aid funding in developing clean water infrastructure, nutritious food programs, and reforestation projects that help communities in need. Hosts Texas also gave thoughtful consideration to the local sustainability efforts by selecting multiple venues, tours, and experiences that were within walking distance of the Hotel Valencia Riverwalk, the electric barges for transportation, and bikes for a tour of the city.

The education at the Hosts Global Forum focused on how strong partnerships are created through some very interesting guest speakers whilst panel discussions touched on a curated list of industry topics such as attendee engagement, sustainability efforts, hybrid meetings, and contracting.

Hosts Global Forum honour their DMC Members for their outstanding performance in numerous categories. The top Hosts DMCs were selected for all their hardwork, creativity, and dedication.

The award winners were as follows:
Fearless Full Service in Operational Expertise category – e2 Destination & Event Management and Hosts Las Vegas
Made Meaningful category – Empire Force Events
Ferocious Creativity in Event Design & Decor category – Spectra
Hosts Global Member of the Year – COTC

Malta Marriott recognised for ‘excellence in service delivery’ by Marriott International

Malta Marriott Hotel & Spa has been recognised by parent company Marriott International for its customer service delivery through a distinction for its Intent to Recommend score for July 2022.

Marriott International was full of praise towards the Malta-based hotel for the achievement, a sign of a “truly outstanding performance”.  It also thanked Malta Marriott for the service it provides to customers, with a priority on making them feel “safe, secure, and welcomed”.

“Lasting memories are created through great customer service, and we have a team that cares about that as much as you do,” Malta Marriott said.

“We are proud of our associates for their dedication to delivering hospitality and creating experiences that will last a lifetime,” the hotel added.

The hotel launched in January 2020 after an investment of €30 million for extensive refurbishment, and he has since become known for the “joyful experience” it offers its guests every time they visit.

Similar to other hotels, Malta Marriott was forced to halt its operations during the COVID-19 pandemic due to lockdown restrictions just a few months after its launch, before it reopened at the start of September of that same year.
