Monaco has also succeeded attracting major business events throughout the year, with Sandrine Camia, Director of the Convention Bureau, saying, “Thirty-one percent of the nights sold outside July and August were the result of Business Tourism.”

At the Grimaldi Forum, the convention centre remains unused only 10 days during the year, again proving the enduring popularity of Monaco as a high-end business destination.
