Constructed in the 16th century, the Mediterranean Conference Centre (MCC) is one of Europe’s largest conference centres and a remarkable historical landmark. One of the most imposing buildings in Valletta, it is the former “Sacra Imfermeria” of the Order of St John of Jerusalem and is located adjacent to Fort St Elmo and overlooking Valletta’s Grand Harbour.
As a working hospital under the Order of the Knights of St John, it pioneered some of the most forward-thinking medical practices of the time and was renowned as one of the best hospitals in Europe. During World War II, it received four direct hits and after several periods of restoration and other uses, opened in 1979 restored and redesigned to house contemporary conference and event facilities.
The Mediterranean Conference Centre, as a heritage site that has adapted to the challenging demands of the 21st century, serves as the perfect venue to welcome visitors both overseas and local for our two-day conference on Post-truth Society.

The Mediterranean Conference Centre is located at the end of the peninsula of Valletta – the capital city of Malta. If staying outside the city gates, the venue can be reached by either taking a bus or ferry to Valletta. It is then a short 10-15 minute walk through the city. Alternatively, you can flag or book an electric cab to cross the city.
