Skal International Monaco is an association with links to tourism, business and culture. It has 480 clubs in 78 countries throughout the world and almost 20,000 members.
The Executive Committee of the Monegasque association includes the President, Mr. Constantine Panoussi, Mrs. Birgit Reimann Panoussi, star dancer Lorena Baricalla, Sergio Mangini, Director of the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort, Antonio Ducceschi, Director of the Fairmont Hôtel and members who represent major Monegasque institutions, such as Guillaume Rose, Delegate-General for Tourism for the Principality of Monaco, Sylvie Biancheri, Director-General of the Grimaldi Forum and Axel Hoppenot, Marketing and Commercial Director of the Monte-Carlo SBM.
Skal International is an active member of worldwide associations such as the United Nations World Tourism, the World Travel Market and Tourism for Peace.
This coming Thursday, 24 October, at 8 p.m., the Association will hold a dinner at the Fairmont to mark the visit to the Principality of the World President of Skal International, Mrs. Karine Coulanges.
The links between Monaco and the world presidency are very close, and many projects are being developed in this respect.
A major event with a gala dinner was also held recently at the Empire Room of the Hôtel de Paris in tribute to Prince Rainier III, as Skal International's world anthem, composed in 1975, was dedicated to him at that time. Skal International's tribute, which was attended by guests from all over the world, was brought to a close with a show created and performed by Lorena Baricalla, who has often starred in the Monegasque National Festival in honour of Prince Rainier.
