  • Matchless Value: Monaco is a five star destination in Europe at an excellent cost for groups. Our 4-night guaranteed US$ hotel packages and VAT refunds on many services make the Principality of Monaco an indisputable choice.
  • Easily Accessible: Getting here is never an ordeal. Monaco lies just 30 minutes from Nice Côte d’Azur International Airport.
  • High Standing of International Hotels: Our stunning European-style resorts are ranked among the best in the world. They are regularly refurbished to feature all modern amenities. There’s no better place to relax and be pampered.

  • English is Widely Spoken: English is widely spoken among all the warm people you’ll meet in Monaco. Your participants will have no problem finding their way around our Principality.
  • Sunny Year-Round Weather: Similar to the weather in Southern California, the mild temperatures and more than 300 days of sunshine a year make it the perfect destination for every season.

TESTIMONIALS

Astrid WICKI, Osteology Foundation

"The symposium was a huge success for us as organisers as we had 2'500 participants but also because everything was near to perfect. We have rarely seen so many smiling faces and received so many positive feedbacks. (…) Many of the industry representatives as well as the speakers said "Why have we never organised an event in Monaco before?". I am convinced that you will see more implantologists in the future in your city."

Catherine DECUYPER | CEO, Conference Manager EuroMediCom

"Choosing the Principality of Monaco as a venue for the Anti-Aging World Congress was one of the keys to its success. Monaco is an exceptional destination on many counts :The Principality is superbly located, and the climate is mild almost all year round. Everyone involved in organising an event is directly available and present at all stages, from planning the project to carrying it out in full. Monaco Tourist and Convention Authority is a real partner and is keen to offer ongoing help and advice. The Grimaldi Forum is a perfect congress centre; it benefits from being in an amazing location by the sea and the staff who runs it is very professional.The hotels are also real partners, who listened to our needs and took the time to welcome each of the 8,000 participants in the congress as individuals.
All this contributed to creating an almost magical atmosphere, which everyone noticed – conference participants, exhibitors and organisers – and which is recreated every year."

Nathalie Grosdidier of IDICE, Organiser of the Luxe Pack

"Luxe Pack found the Grimaldi Forum to be a very pleasant venue with real character. Also, in the Principality everything is conveniently situated in one place, which is very unusual and is very much appreciated by the participants. Exhibitors and visitors meet at the show, but they also interact outside, on the sidelines of the event."
