Monaco - make your event unique

Monaco - make your event unique

Stretching over a two sqkm territory, the Principality of Monaco is the second smallest country in the world. Nestled in the heart of Europe, this city-state embodies many unique facets which make it famous worldwide and help to create the special aura that shimmers over Monaco.

Ideally located between the mountains and the sea, benefiting from a mild Mediterranean climate all year round, the Principality is situated between France and Italy. It can be easily reached via Nice airport (daily direct flights from all over the world).

Monaco embodies glamour and luxury in people’s minds. These two components are certainly part of its DNA but our country offers much more. 

The Principality has proved to be a successful and virtuous economic model as well with more than 5,000 companies. Its major industry sectors keep developing and today the Principality is a knowledge hub aiming at becoming a fully Smart City.

Our congress centre, the Grimaldi Forum Monaco, offers large capacities to welcome your events. 2,500 hotel rooms are available in all categories. Most of our facilities are within walking distance making logistics easy.

During the current crisis that the world is facing, Monaco is working  hard on applying strict measures to halt the pandemic. Our Social Affairs and Health Ministry is making concerted efforts to handle the situation and guarantee a safe and healthy environment with a stance of constant vigilance.

As the Convention Bureau of Monaco, we want to ensure a close follow up of your event. We believe that our service and dedication is essential to guarantee the success of your event. Indeed, we are convinced that any business is firstly a matter of human interaction!

We will be more than happy to be your first contact in order to give you the right keys to organise your event in our unique Principality!
