Premises Hire & The Exchange Buildings

The Exchange Buildings are the work of Architect Giuseppe Bonavia. The Exchange Buildings were completed and inaugurated in 1857 – nine years after the formal establishment of The Malta Chamber.

Today, the unique neo-classical style of the Exchange Buildings is viewed, not only as the seat of the Business Community, but as an elegant and prestigious location for Business and Social Events. Over the years the building has been maintained to the highest of standards providing a magnificent venue for a variety of events.
