Poker players who are familiar with this expression will understand! The perceived image of Monaco, by which the Principality is known, hides – perhaps too much - many assets that are less obvious, but highly advantageous - for example, the many areas of expertise that underlie Monaco's economy.
Of course, Monaco is an exclusive, glamorous destination that's steeped in history. A magical place with a mild Mediterranean climate, easily accessible in under 30 minutes from Nice-Côte d’Azur International Airport. In Monaco, your clients can benefit from our portfolio of 2,500 hotel rooms, and can travel around our little country of 2km2 on foot. The Convention Bureau, with its experience of Green events organisation, is there to help your clients organise their event in the most eco‑friendly way. But that's not all. The idyllic location and the expertise of the business tourism professionals tend to make us overlook one of the basic advantages – the country's healthy economy and balanced budget. And that wasn't achieved by chance.
The Principality constitutes one of the most dynamic labour pools in Southern Europe - with more than 5,000 businesses and 50,000 employees, who are cosmopolitan, to say the least, as they represent more than 119 nationalities. Economic activity in the Principality is very varied. Four areas stand out: health, banking and financial activities, information technology and communications, and activities related to the environment and sustainable development. In this regard, the Principality's approach is seen as a benchmark throughout the world. Conference delegates have a unique opportunity to meet their Monegasque counterparts and exchange ideas in their respective areas of expertise.
Monaco is also the safest country in Europe. A multitude of artistic events take place there, and are more and more innovative. Contrary to received ideas, Monaco represents excellent value for money compared to other destinations – especially taking into account that the congress centre, the Grimaldi Forum, has a team of 150 experts who are always at your service. In addition, the Convention Bureau works in partnership with nine incoming agencies, on hand throughout the year to make your event a success.
A communications campaign and new promotional tools are available to help your plan your event, including a brochure entitled "Your Event Needs Monaco" and the "Business & Meetings" section of Monaco Tourist and Convention Authority's web site:
