By organising an Annual Forum and a several sub-fora throughout the year, the MTF aims to promote dialogue and the potential of synergies in political and commercial initiatives amongst stakeholders with an interest in Mediterranean tourism. The main themes addressed through the sub-fora are:

  • Operations (including matters of interest to Hotels, Restaurants, Airlines, Cruise Ports, Airports etc),
  • Political (including matters of interest to Mediterranean MEPs, Ministers, Mayors),
  • Culture and Education, and
  • Energy and the Environment from a Tourism and Hospitality perspective.

The Annual Forum is held in Malta whereas at least two sub-fora are held in other Mediterranean nations annually. Some horizontal themes that are addressed include: employment, migration, security, transport, industry standards, mobility, finance, innovation, marketing, communication, culinary, sport, niche tourism segments, gender equality, ethics, technology, and real estate.
