Nickelodeon Treasure Hunt Malta is Malta's first-ever Nickelodeon branded experiential tourism franchise. Launched in 2019 as part of a partnership between Malta Tourism Authority and Viacom Velocity International, the branded content, events and ad-agency of VCNI (formally Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN)), the Nickelodeon Treasure Hunt Malta took place between 13th and 18th April 2019, and attracted families from all over the world to visit Malta over the Easter school holidays.

Nickelodeon Treasure Hunt Malta 2019 was based around creating exclusive Nickelodeon experiences and rewards at select attractions around the Maltese Islands. Activities included searching for SpongeBob SquarePants and friends at the National Aquarium, learning through play with the PAW Patrol pups at the Esplora Science Centre, learning to duel with Nella the Princess Knight at the 16th-century St James Cavalier, and joining the pizza-loving Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles at Is-Suq Tal-Belt food market.

A Nickelodeon Multi-Media Exhibition and Workshop Hub was open throughout the week at St James Cavalier, with the week’s activity being rounded off with a carnival-style parade through Valetta Old Town.

Activity packs distributed at locations, including the international airport and tourist information centers, featured activities that combined fan-favorite Nickelodeon characters with attractions throughout Malta. Stamps collected at each attraction could be redeemed for Nickelodeon-themed prizes.
