promotes 300 events inside six months

Published: Thu Jul 22 2010, the comprehensive online travel guide for the Maltese Islands, has reached an important milestone for the site, having published over three hundred events in Malta inside the first two quarters of 2010. The events promoted cover a wide spectrum of interests from nightlife through to cultural, with music, sport, exhibitions, theatre, arts and charity events.

The Malta holiday portal offers event organisers the facility to submit events to be published for free on its popular Malta event pages. Following review and approval by the local team, an events webpage is created which includes contact details, address and a map of the event location, together with a description, photos and any programme attachments.

In recent years event related tourism has been a growing phenomenon with low-cost airlines making it especially easy and affordable for Europeans to plan cheap, short breaks in destinations like Malta.

The scale of events promoted on the website vary from large concerts such as the Isle of MTV festival, upcoming performances by Rod Stewart, Elton John and Faithless, to smaller niche events such as historical re-enactments, theatre plays, art exhibitions, village feasts and other events with a particular local flavour.

Niki Bilocca, owner and director of, commented:

"Our popular events section covers the increasing number of major acts performing on our lovely islands which bring in young and old to enjoy some fine weather and top-class entertainment. However, we also make a great effort to unearth and promote smaller events that are more intimate and showcase Malta's varied culture and talents. Travellers with more time to explore Malta and Gozo are particularly attracted to such events."
