Malta & Valetta

As Valletta was the Cultural City, it has lately taken a new dimension, with various boutique hotels sprouting everywhere, and also, it has many restaurants and bars dotted all over.

Those who have never visited Malta will find this Capital City quite interesting, and those who have already been to Malta, would surely find new things to discover on this island.  Those who have a passion to dive, this would be a golden opportunity to set aside a few days to explore the beautiful sea surrounding Malta.


IFTTA Annual Conference

The 33rd IFTTA conference shall be taking place in MALTA, and it is set for Monday 28 November 2022 until Thursday 1 December 2022. The conference will be held in the old  university building (the Valletta campus) of the University of Malta in Valetta. Further information and more details with regard to the Conference, registration and participation fees will be available soon on this page.

Speakers: Those who would like to present a paper, kindly inform IFTTA so that we could start planning the agenda of speakers.

Accommodation: There are many boutique hotels and other accommodation facilities within the capital city. Members are requested to make their room reservations directly at one of the hotels or using other booking resources.

Flights: There are several direct flights to Malta from various countries in Europe and around the Mediterranean. Please be aware that many airlines only offer seasonal flights or have a reduced schedule in the winter season. You need to book the flights well in advance.

We encourage anyone who is interested in attending the IFTTA annual conference to share ideas, tips and other information or ask questions using the IFTTA Member group on Google.
