Malta awarded sec­ond best div­ing des­ti­na­tion in ‘Diver’ awards

The Malta Business Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

For the sec­ond year in a row, the Mal­tese Is­lands have been cho­sen as the 2nd best div­ing des­ti­na­tion at the pres­ti­gious Diver awards. This ac­co­lade places the Mal­tese Is­lands as the most pop­u­lar div­ing des­ti­na­tion in Europe as voted for by thou­sands of Diver mag­a­zine read­ers and vis­i­tors to www.di­ver­net.com.

The highly-an­tic­i­pated event took place dur­ing the Dive Show in Birm­ing­ham, which was at­tended by the Malta Tourism Author­ity on 21 and 22 Oc­to­ber. The Diver awards recog­nise the very best in the in­dus­try, from lead­ing div­ing des­ti­na­tions to in­di­vid­ual in­struc­tors to pi­o­neer­ing com­pa­nies.

The award for best div­ing des­ti­na­tion had a strong list of con­tenders bat­tling it out for the top three places − Egypt came out on top fol­lowed by Malta in sec­ond place and the Mal­dives who came in at third place. This shows that the Mal­tese Is­lands are truly com­pet­ing with the best avail­able and hold­ing its own, sur­pass­ing many of the sought af­ter div­ing des­ti­na­tions.

An­other lo­cal achieve­ment awarded on the night was for Mal­taqua, who were voted run­ner-up for the Best Dive Cen­tre award.

Nicolas San­cho, MTA se­nior man­ager MICE UK & Ire­land said: “We are de­lighted to once again be recog­nised as a lead­ing dive des­ti­na­tion year af­ter year by Diver mag­a­zine read­ers. We have a thriv­ing div­ing com­mu­nity who care for the un­der­wa­ter world. Achiev­ing awards like th­ese are a re­flec­tion of the valu­able re­la­tion­ships be­tween the div­ing com­mu­nity. It mo­ti­vates us to con­tin­u­ously work to­gether to en­sure Malta, Gozo and Comino at­tract vis­i­tors from around the world.”
