our main sponsor
Public-Private Partnership Tech.mt, was established in 2018 by the Government of Malta and the Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry, to promote Malta as a tech centre for innovative technologies.
Created on the key priority fields of technology and innovation, Tech.mt not only aims to elevate Malta’s status as a quality Tech provider on both a local and international platform but also strives to act as the interlinking force between Government, Industry and Academia. To realise Malta’s vision to become a tech centre for innovative technologies, Tech.mt builds its strategy onto four main pillars – those of Promotion, Innovation, Talent and Assistance. Through the combined relevance of all four pillars, Tech.mt aims to provide the means through which established local tech organisations may export their technology overseas and by which foreign investors may equally set up new technological ventures in Malta. As part of its strategy, Tech.mt also focuses on providing tech students with the opportunity to present and enhance their research, attract tech talent towards our country and finally to also provide the assistance and support required to local and international tech start-ups.
We can’t wait to see you!
The JCI Malta National Convention will focus on speeches and sessions centred around the topic of leadership, tackling topics such as emotional intelligence and conflict resolution. The sessions will be led by both local and international trainers/speakers.
Keynotes & Networking
It will host keynote speeches by renowned speakers, a panel discussion on learnings from moments of failures by now-successful entrepreneurs, and will provide the opportunity to those participating to be part of a JCI business networking event.
We are firm believers of the phrase, “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”, therefore we are organising a spooky Murder Mystery dinner on the Saturday evening for all to enjoy. The dinner will be held on site at 4-star Urban Valley Resort & Spa.
