Mediterranean Conference Centre

The Mediterranean Conference Centre is undoubtedly firmly established as one of the most impressive conference centres in all of Europe. The Centre’s historic background and imposing architecture no doubt play a very important role in securing the position it enjoys today.

For over two centuries, the building that now houses the Mediterranean Conference Centre was the ‘Sacra Infermeria’ or Holy Infirmary of the Order of St. John. Constructed in the latter part of the 16th Century, this architectural landmark has had a fascinating history during which it was subject to various transformations as it changed to accommodate the needs of the day.

The Mediterranean Conference Centre boasts a total of eight halls and four syndicate rooms over an area of 7,000 square metres. The halls vary in size and are therefore suitable for a range of events. The largest and most impressive, Republic Hall, seats 1,400 in theatre style whereas the smallest, La Cassiere caters for 60 persons.

Each meeting hall is equipped with its own independent sound, lighting and climate control. Conference facilities include permanent installations for simultaneous interpretation for up to six languages, ADSL, Wi-Fi as well as audio / visual equipment. The Centre can accommodate over 2,300 delegates in all the conference halls.

The impressive and imposing Republic Hall has been constructed in place of what once was the Main Courtyard of the ‘Sacra Infermeria’. Its large area, 728 square metres, is tastefully roofed over and has created Malta’s largest Auditorium. With a seating capacity of 1,400, this elegant theatre style hall is the largest in the Conference Centre. It is ideal for large-scale meetings or conferences and is equipped with theatre lighting and sound systems, audio/visual facilities as well as simultaneous interpretation for up to six languages.

This hall was once the Long Ward of the ‘Sacra Infermeria’. It is one of the longest halls in Europe and was recognised as an architectural feat in the 16th century when it was constructed.

The La Valette Banqueting Hall is unique on the Island in many respects. With a seating capacity of about 900 persons it is the largest in Malta covering an area of about 1500 sq. metres. Its massive yet graceful vaulted ceiling is most impressive. Quaint 400 year – old frescos have been restored; candle torches, coat-of-arms of the Knights of Malta set the scene for formal dinners and elegant banquets.

No matter what the size of the event being organized – from a small presentation to a large conference, a product launch or an exhibition, a convention or even a theatrical performance – the Mediterranean Conference Centre can cater for all your requirements.
