Monaco, home to all major business events
Summit meetings, medical conferences, Champions League football kick-off ceremony… In the same year, Monaco hosts hundreds of professional events in a wide variety of fields. This diversity is explained by very high-level MICE infrastructures, in particular the Grimaldi Forum Monaco, Sporting Monte-Carlo and One Monte-Carlo venues. These highly modular and versatile conference and convention centres have built Monaco's reputation for business events.
One Monte-Carlo: the beating heart of the Principality
Inaugurated in 2019 in the heart of the Monaco Golden Square, the One Monte-Carlo Conference Centre blends into the urban landscape of Place du Casino, bringing an added touch of modernity. In addition to its architectural value, this complex is full of options for providing premium services for conventions, professional ceremonies or product launches. The 1,445-sq.m events venue can be hired privately to accommodate up to 800 people in a theatre set-up. The Salle des Arts with its art deco atmosphere is perfect for both cocktail receptions and plenary meetings. The adjoining 178-sq.m Salle Jean Cocteau can be transformed to match specific needs and different events, from luncheons to meetings... Three halls that can be divided into two smaller rooms and an amphitheatre round up the possibilities on offer for this supremely modular venue adaptable to many formats.
Grimaldi Forum Monaco: the Monaco Convention Centre
With three auditoriums (including the Salle des Princes seating 1,864), 22 committee and break-out rooms, and modular exhibition spaces including a 4,205-sq.m hall, the Grimaldi Forum Monaco has built its reputation hosting large-scale events. Suitable for many occasions, from B2C events to concerts, through cultural exhibitions and trade fairs, as well as MICE conferences, the iconic conference centre located on the seafront is easily accessible from the Principality’s major hotel establishments. Its versatility makes it ideal for hosting many high-profile and large-scale events, such as the 5-day European Damon Forum, which brought together 750 orthodontic professionals. The Grimaldi Forum Monaco also hosts the launch of the UEFA season, and in particular the public draw of the Champions League groups. In the Principality, European football’s governing body benefits from a modular conference centre with auditorium and offices, together with high-quality guest accommodations for this key sporting event.
Sporting Monte-Carlo: a sea view under the stars!
The Rose Ball, Monte-Carlo Summer Festival, concerts by the world’s biggest pop stars… The Sporting Monte-Carlo, located on the Larvotto peninsula close to the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort, has made outstanding events one of its trademarks. The hosting capacities of the Salle des Étoiles and adjoining venues also make it a perfect match for brand events: the competitive video game Gran Turismo held its world finals here, and it accommodates one of the European Poker Tour stops every year, with the entire venue hired out to host over 700 players in the various rooms. The Financial Times also held its Business of Luxury Summit here. These large organisations rely on the versatility of the Sporting’s different halls, together with the services of the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort to accommodate attendees and provide services matching the prestige of their events.
