Monaco Convention Bureau

In Monaco, #BusinessIsGreen: Monaco Convention Bureau shares its commitment to sustainable events at IMEX Frankfurt 2019

Monaco is committed to sustainable development and fight against climate change. The Monaco Convention Bureau reinforces its commitment to sustainability through green initiatives and a newly launched at IMEX Frankfurt 2019 #BusinessIsGreen digital campaign. IMEX took place from 21–32 May.

Monaco, under the leadership of H.S.H. Prince Albert II, is one of the first nations in Europe to adopt a more environmentally conscious attitude. His Serene Highness has defined a roadmap for 2050 to become carbon neutral at this date, and all local stakeholders are on board to achieve this target.  

Business tourism in Monaco is an important economic pillar, and the Monaco Convention Bureau and its partners including hotels, venues and Destination Management Companies (DMCs) are working collaboratively to implement, communicate and design event programmes that are environmentally friendly. 

These strategies were introduced at the press conference at IMEX Frankfurt, together with key business figures for 2018. 

Unexpected Monaco event in Cologne

On the 5th of July I attended an evening event organised by the Monaco Convention Bureau in Cologne. The event took place at The View Cologne, a prime location overlooking the landmark Cologne Cathedral. It was a small and intimate evening with about 35 guests to recreate what it’s like to actually host an event in Monaco. The theme, Unexpected Monaco, was consistent throughout the evening, from typical decoration to food, drinks and entertainment, with the Vice-World Champion of Mental Magic Lucca Key giving an engaging performance. After spending the busy IMEX Frankfurt with the Monaco Convention Bureau to report about all their latest news, this evening was laid back to soak in the Monégasque hospitality. I’m delighted to share with you the photos that I took on the night and let them to tell the story!
