The Representative Office in Italy of the Monaco Government Tourist and Convention Bureau (DTC) has just returned to Milan after a promotional week in the cities of Naples and Palermo.

During the tour, a delegation made up of Mr Guy Antognelli, Deputy Director of Tourism and Congress, Mrs Laurence Aquilina, Marketing Manager in charge of Western European and US markets, and partners of the Casino Monte Carlo partners with diplomatic ties in Italy, looked specifically at two audiences, tourism professionals and VIP clients.

On October 17 and 18, the Monegasque delegation met with major travel agencies in Palermo. In addition to meeting with tourism professionals, travel agents and consultants, on October 18, a hundred guests were invited to a party at the Grand Hotel Piazza Borsa for an evening billed as “Monte Carlo Night Sicily”, organized jointly by Mr Mariano Bruno, Honorary Consul of Monaco in Palermo and the DTC, it was attended by SEM Robert Fillon, Ambassador of Monaco in Italy. Massimo Michelis, a representative of the Monte Carlo Casino, was also on hand to make? some promotional campaigns.

The following two days, the same schedule was extended to Naples. The Monte-Carlo Flower Party, organised by the DTC and the Honorary Consulate of Monaco in Naples, took place on October 20 at the Union Club of Naples, again in the presence of SEM Robert Fillon. Some 500 guests were handpicked to celebrate Monaco, further confirming the links with one of the most popular destinations for the wealthy clientele of southern Italy.
