The Maltese islands have been awarded ‘Best Overseas Destin-ation for Groups’ after a vote by the 10,000 readers of Group Travel Organiser magazine.

Malta triumphed over the other finalists Germany, Amsterdam, Austria, Belgium, Jersey and Lake Garda to win the award at a gala evening at the Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel, London.

More than 400 industry players came together for the event that celebrated excellence in supplying services to group travel organisers in more than 20 categories.

“It is with great pride that we receive the prestigious ‘Best Overseas Destination for Groups’ award, and we are delighted to be recognised as the best supplier in this category by the readers of Group Travel Organiser magazine,” said Malta Tourism Authority CEO Josef Formosa Gauci.

“We strive and are committed to delivering a product best suited for group leisure travellers, which showcases the best possible attributes of Malta and Gozo to this market.”

The awards incorporate all aspects of the visitor experience, from the pre-visit information and transport to accommodation and places visited during the trip.
