Malta launches ‘megafam’ competition to mark National Travel Agent Day

Malta Tourism Authority (MTA) is giving agents the chance to win spots on a 2023 “megafam” to celebrate National Travel Agent Day.

To enter the competition, agents must either join the Visit Malta Trade Facebook group or make a Malta booking with Mercury Holidays by August 19. A total of five prize spots are available, two of which will be allocated via Facebook and three via Mercury Holidays.

The authority has launched the competition to mark National Travel Agent Day, which it said gives them the chance to “celebrate agents, their incredible knowledge and how they really make a difference”.

Next year’s educational will follow the success of the tourism board’s first megafam which took place earlier this year (pictured) and saw 30 agents spend three days on the island, participating in activities.

Tolene van der Merwe, Malta Tourism Authority’s UK and Ireland director, said: “We are incredibly grateful for their continued support in recommending Malta, Gozo and Comino to UK holidaymakers and we want to show them how much we value what they do and we look forward to rewarding some very special travel agents with a trip of their own soon.”

Malta Tourism Authority trade trainer Peter Green said: “This year’s first ever Malta megafam was such a treat. Being able to share the delights of Malta with so many brilliant agents that we have worked with so much over the course of the pandemic was a highlight of the year for me.”
