Grimaldi Forum

The Convention Center of the Third Millennium

The Grimaldi Forum Monaco can host events from 400 to 4,500 attendees. It is one of the greenest venues in Europe and its commitment has been rewarded by the ISO 14001 environmental management certification since 2008. Right from the start, the architects addressed environmental issues in the design of the center’s insulation, energy and air conditioning.

It is an engineering miracle built on land reclaimed from the sea; 500 cubic meters of water are pumped per hour, generating energy to heat and cool the building, without damaging sea life. Since its certification, the Grimaldi Forum Monaco has launched a new “Green Event” offer and its dedicated Green Team is now able to propose tailor-made solutions for organizers wishing to limit the environmental footprint of their event.

The daylight-filled building on the sea has a stunning glass entrance and 2 banqueting areas, each seating 500. Its 1,800-seat auditorium with a 10,925 sq. ft. stage and a balcony for 600 is used for corporate events and plenary sessions as well as concerts, ballet and opera performances. Two other auditoriums seat 800 and 400. There are 23 breakout rooms for 10 to 400 and 2 large exhibition halls with various stage possibilities. The larger one (45,200 sq. ft.) includes a pillar-free area of 26,911 sq. ft., with a 23-ft. ceiling and space for up to 200 trade show booths. The other can adapt to the requirements of all your events and can hold 155 booths, and features a private entrance. By using the latest technologies and by providing a wide range of products and services through its event department (audiovisual, catering, security and hosting staff services), the Grimaldi Forum Monaco offers a comfort unequalled by any other venue in southern Europe for the hosting of impressive international events. It has modernized the appearance of all its public areas for the past two years with the only leitmotiv: light, transparency and modernity. Most of the 2,500 first-class and deluxe hotel rooms are within walking distance and shuttles are rarely needed. For more information,
