VAT Regulations

Due to VAT regulations set out by the European Union, and specifically by Malta, we are legally obliged to charge 18% Maltese VAT on all in-person delegate registration fees regardless of the company’s country of origin or VAT registration status.For online delegate registrations Dutch VAT at 21% is applicable in some cases.

In some cases where an exhibition booth is requested, VAT may or may not apply. Likewise, for sponsorship, VAT may or may not apply.
