Grimaldi Forum Monaco is set for a year-long makeover beginning in 2014 that will reimagine many of its public areas. But not to worry, the venue’s quintessential industrial chic vibe isn’t going anywhere. The revamp is actually ongoing, with plans for an updated website, WiFi equipment, and decor marking the last round of renovations to a project that officially began in 2010 with the addition of the hip and elegant Cafe Llorca.
With 2,500 hotel rooms in walking distance to the convention center, 5,000 businesses and loads of culture immersion opportunities including 16 museums, 170 restaurants and year-round cultural events, Monaco packs a big punch for such a small destination.
“Monaco’s culture and history definitely add a special feel to an event,” says Grimaldi Forum Monaco’s Sales/Development Director Francoise Rossi. “Coming to Monaco is like taking an emotional ride through the Principality’s historical heritage; from the beginning of the Grimaldi reign to the first scientific and oceanographic explorations of Albert I… to the commitment of HSH Prince Albert II of protecting the environment.”

The center’s ISO 14001 certification and ACTGreen policy ensures that this environmental legacy remains center stage in the minds of event organizers by limiting environmental impact on hosted events. With exhibition space totalling near 400,000 sf, exhibition halls with over 87,000 sf and three auditoriums seating over 3,000 delegates, eco-friendly meetings and spaces may also be just what the doctor ordered for a good price-quality-performance ratio.
In fact, Grimaldi Forum Monaco is all about maximizing value whether through “Monaco Meetings,” a savings bundle offered by Grimaldi Forum Monaco in conjunction with the Monaco Convention Bureau and the Principality, or investing in the latest innovations that help planners bring meetings to life.
“Getting the best return on investment or on engagement is one of our clients’ main objectives. As a venue, we aspire to help our clients reach this aim by ensuring the best value for their money,” Rossi says.
