Malta has been awarded ‘Best International Destination’ at the Group Leisure Awards held earlier this week.

The Malta Tourism Authority said that the annual Group Leisure Awards were presented in Birmingham in front of 350 members of the UK and international travel trade. The Best International Destination category was sponsored by Poppy Travel, official travel arm of The Royal British Legion.

The Group Leisure Awards are voted for by readers of Group Leisure, the UK’s number one monthly magazine for group travel organizers. Readers of Group Leisure magazine vote across different categories that cover the range and variety on offer for leisure groups today. Malta emerged as the winner of the annual readers’ choice awards, voted for by the most discerning group travel organisers.

Alex Incorvaja, Director UK & Ireland said that ‘it is indeed an honour to win such a prestigious award. Our efforts in promoting the Maltese Islands as a leisure destination for groups are certainly reaping results. This comes as a vote of confidence to us by the travel specialists in this sector and goes to show that our product is very much geared towards this market’.

The other finalists for this award were Bruges, New York City and Tallinn.

Malta is immensely proud to have scooped the award despite the tough competition by the other destination candidates, the MTA said.
