L’arcipelago maltese, nel cuore del Mediterraneo, a meno di 2h di volo dall’Italia, permette di staccare dalla propria routine, di uscire dai propri schemi e dalla propria quotidianità, che anche se per lavoro, ci permette di concederci una pausa da quelle cattive abitudini a cui tutti siamo molto attaccati.
Una destinazione che offre un mix di cultura, storia, natura ed esperienze, in grado di rispondere alle richieste più esigenti della MICE industry, una meta che favorisce la costruzione di un equilibrio, permettendoci di staccare la spina.
Degli scenari di natura selvaggia, incontaminata ed autentica, dove l’immergerci in essa ci permette di avvicinarci alla nostra essenza, abbassando gli stati di tristezza, ansia e stress.
La natura fa bene al corpo e alla mente, la luce solare costituisce un’ondata di puro benessere in grado di rivitalizzare l’organismo, la Dottoressa Bormetti ci dice infatti: “20 minuti in natura sono sufficienti per migliorare umore e aumentare il pensiero creativo. Quindi staccare la spina dalla routine quotidiana e immergersi in paesaggi naturali è essenziale per la salute mentale.”
E perché non rendere lo scenario autentico delle isole maltesi la sede del proprio evento?
Isabella Maggi, Marketing&Communication Director del Gruppo Gattinoni commenta ” Per il Gruppo Gattinoni Malta rappresenta una destinazione molto interessante sotto molteplici aspetti. Innanzitutto per il suo clima molto mite che permette di goderla tutto l’anno, sia da parte dei nostri viaggiatori sia anche per l’organizzazione di eventi e incentive per le aziende. A questo proposito, grazie all’ampia varietà di strutture ed esperienze che si possono fare, Malta soprattutto negli ultimi anni ci ha permesso di offrire ai nostri clienti un ventaglio ampio di proposte e di andare incontro alle esigenze delle aziende in maniera tailor made”.
Conclude Ester Tamasi, Direttore di VisitMalta Italia “Sempre positivo l’andamento del segmento MICE a Malta che può contare su operatori che dedicano la massima attenzione al settore e offrono un’impeccabile qualità del servizio e continua innovazione nei programmi.
Risultati raggiunti anche grazie alla collaborazione con partner come Gattinoni che sanno interpretare e comunicare perfettamente le potenzialità della destinazione.
Malta è una meta poliedrica, flessibile e smart, che consente un approccio olistico all’organizzazione di un evento e quindi perfetta per la creazione di programmi costruiti ad hoc sulle necessità dei clienti, come la formula retreat che permette di entrare in pieno contatto con il territorio, per un’immersione completa nell’identità locale, con un’attenzione sempre alta al benessere degli ospiti.
L’arcipelago maltese rappresenta un luogo ideale dove resettare il proprio equilibrio, ricalibrare la propria attenzione e identificare nuovi obiettivi.”

Manchester United Ambassadors Bryan Robson and Denis Irwin flew to Malta this Summer to see for themselves just what the Maltese Islands have to offer, and why there is always more to explore.
What started off as a normal trip turned into quite an adventure as the two legends were challenged to tasks set by Manchester United players: Paul Pogba, Brandon Williams and Lee Grant.
In the first episode, we see the legends try their luck at water sports in Comino, before further episodes in the four-part series sees them trying their hand at glass-blowing in Mdina, and cooking at the Maritime Museum, but not before checking out some sights in Valletta, stopping for a quick Maltese delicacy, and even exploring the Malta National Aquarium.
“I think Malta is great! Every time I come here, I am amazed by the hospitality of the people, the great sights and the good food,” Bryan Robson said, with Denis Irwin adding that “it feels so special to know that Malta and Manchester United have a history that goes back decades, which can only go from strength to strength, and which can only mean that we get to have the opportunity to always have a reason to be among our Maltese friends, who are practically our extended family.”
There can only be one winner in the end, and Gozo was the perfect backdrop for the announcement by Hon Clayton Bartolo, Minister for Tourism.
“Our official destination partnership between VisitMalta and worldwide football brand Manchester United enables us to expose Malta’s long successful story in hospitality. The arrival of two club legends like Denis Irwin and Bryan Robson is another step forward to showcase the Maltese Islands around the globe,” remarked Minister for Tourism and Consumer Protection Clayton Bartolo.
“It was a pleasure for VisitMalta to host Bryan and Denis during their stay in Malta, as part of the official destination partnership which we have with Manchester United. This partnership is of high importance to the Malta Tourism Authority, and to the VisitMalta Brand, which has the United Kingdom as one of its strongest markets, and which, is being seen across the worldwide fanbase of Manchester United, beyond European borders, as far as Asia,” Dr Gavin Gulia, Chairman of the MTA said.
