The bustling centre of congress and culture in Larvotto hosted a gathering on January 9th, where the General Manager, Sylvie Biancheri, extended New Year wishes, foreseeing a historic year ahead.
The Grimaldi Forum Monaco is set to mark another milestone in 2024, surpassing its previous record revenue of 24 million euros.
Numbers tell a compelling story, with examples like 15,000 participants for the anti-aging fair, 10,500 for Luxe Pack, and 11,300 for the Security Symposium. Sylvie Biancheri attributed this surge to a post-pandemic effect, emphasizing the human need for live interactions and events. Notably, the Grimaldi Forum welcomes new clients in real estate and finance, and aims to create significant events like the sustainable fashion competition Junk Kouture, Moretti Fine Arts auction, and the sports event Padel Best Expo.
The financial outlook is optimistic, building on the promising results of 2023, where the Grimaldi Forum generated 21.5 million euros from hosting 115 events. Projections for 2024 indicate a robust recovery, exceeding the figures of their previous record year pre-pandemic … 2019. Sylvie Biancheri highlighted that slots are still available in the calendar, and the support from recurring clients, who witnessed record attendance last year, contributes to the positive momentum.
