MACE - The Malta Aviation Conference and Expo 2021, themed Rebooting the Industry, took off on the 26th October with its third edition, welcoming to Malta some of the most inspirational experts in the aviation industry for three days of panel discussions, keynotes and networking.“We are truly delighted that we are yet again able to host our conference physically after having to do it completely online in 2020. Following the hand dealt to the aviation industry by the now infamous Covid-19 pandemic, we managed to bring together the industry in order to discuss and collaborate on ways by which together we can take the industry back to pre-pandemic heights. We are proud to have yet again created a space for industry players, professionals, as well as policy makers to engage in discussions, partnerships and share best practices in a time of challenges that could turn into business opportunities,” said Stanley Bugeja, Jonathan Dalli and Joshua Zammit, MACE Founding Partners. 

With all Covid-19 precautions taken, the conference hosted over 35 local and international speakers including the Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects, Hon. Dr. Ian Borg; the Director General for Civil Aviation, Transport Malta, Capt. Charles Pace; Former NASA Scientist, Dr Anita Sengupta; UK based travel vlogger and reviewer Noel Philips; and many more.

“Yet again, MACE, being Malta’s biggest aviation-themed conference, has truly proven to be of great value to the aviation community and it is thanks to our Main Partner, Transport Malta and other partners that believed in the conference and expo from its inception in 2019, that we have managed to achieve this milestone, which motivates us in hosting delegates again for the yearly MACE in 2022,” they concluded.

Speaking during the conference, Hon. Minister Dr Ian Borg said, “Being Malta’s largest aviation conference, MACE is the perfect platform to target and attract keynote speakers and potential investments for further growth in this industry. As Maltese Government, through the Civil Aviation Directorate within Malta’s aviation regulator Transport Malta, we are proud to assist this prestigious event as main sponsors. Malta’s aviation register, 9H, is one of the fastest-growing ones in Europe, showing that the most influential aviation leaders are looking at Malta to continue expanding their services. Presently at around 600 aircrafts registered, we are committed to continue building on this growth and conferences like MACE are an excellent opportunity to foster healthy dialogue, collaboration, and the sharing of best practices to expand our horizons. Most importantly MACE will provide the right platform to deliberate on the way forward, especially after a crucial time brought about by the Covid pandemic. The Maltese Government is committed to offer a supportive shoulder in order to help aviation get back on its feet and continue achieving great results and continuous economic growth.”

In support of the industry’s social responsibility and commitment to a greener future, in 2021 the MACE organisers wanted to go that extra green mile to make the Conference and Expo completely carbon neutral. Together with our supporting partners Carbon TradeXchange (CTX), MACE has offset 100% of the expected carbon emissions that were generated through this conference.
