Monaco’s meetings industry goes from strength to strength for yet another year with a rise of 5,4% in business events in 2019. The Principality is highly focused on continuously improving its services in the sector since it represents 25% of the whole economy. Special focus is given to partnerships with local stakeholders and CSR companies in fields like Medicine, Information Technology, Finance, Sports and Luxury Industry.
The constant rise in numbers is also thanks to Monaco’s largest and most known convention centre, the Grimaldi Forum (pictured). The venue’s success is evident through the number of events hosted every year, one third of which are returning events. Grimaldi Forum continues to remain committed to sustainability, offering 2500 sq.m. of solar panels making it the biggest solar station in Monaco.
The following years are promising for the venue as it celebrates its 20 years of life next year with a 6000 sq.m. extension under way, meant to increase its exhibition capacity by 50%.
