Mediterranean Conference Centre, Valletta, Malta

about the venue
Nestled in the heart of Valletta, Malta, our conference venue, the Mediterranean Conference Centre, boasts a rich tapestry of history intertwined with modern sophistication. Originally constructed in the 16th century by the Order of St. John, this architectural marvel began its journey as the Sacra Infermeria, or Holy Infirmary, a beacon of medical excellence renowned across Europe. Known as the Grand Hôspital under French rule and the Station Hospital in the British era, it served as a pivotal healthcare institution until 1920, with a capacity to accommodate between 500 to 2,500 patients at a time.

Today, transformed into a state-of-the-art conference facility, the Mediterranean Conference Centre (MCC) retains its historical grandeur while offering the latest in event hosting technology. This blend of ancient heritage and contemporary amenities makes it a unique and captivating location for our conference, providing an unparalleled experience for all attendees.
