Conference Centers

The Grimaldi Forum Monaco is a unique venue at the heart of an exceptional destination.  It was one of the first in Europe to be awarded ISO 14001:2004 certification. A high-tech, smart, and bright congress centre can be transformed to host a variety of different events, giving projects a whole new dimension.


Located on the edge of the Mediterranean with excellent direct links to Europe’s major cities via Nice Côte d’Azur airport just 22 km/30 minutes away, the Grimaldi Forum Monaco has established itself as flagship destination for international business tourism thanks to its world-class expertise and vast experience of hosting major events, including Top Marques, Christian Louboutin exhibition, Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo, Luxe Pack, RDV de Septembre, and many more since it was officially opened on 20 July 2000 by Prince Rainier III and Prince Albert II of Monaco.

As an iconic part of the events landscape, the Grimaldi Forum Monaco will reap the benefits of the ambitious new  “Mareterra” eco-district from 2025 onwards. The Principality’s congress and cultural centre will see its exhibition capacity raised by 50% with almost 6,000 m² of additional space. The extension will allow the GFM to host even bigger events, all with incredible views of the Mediterranean Sea from the Ravel terrace.

 Fully modulable for maximum versatility, the new spaces will be divided into three zones:

  • From the hall of the same name, the new Diaghilev Gallery with 1,031 m2 of space will be able to accommodate nearly 370 m2 (net figure) of stands;
  • Running along the seaward side of the existing building, the Carré and Les Salles du Patio will be bathed in natural light. Covering a total floor area of 1,453 m2, they will be capable of accommodating almost 670 m2 (net) of stands, or can alternatively be split into eight meeting rooms for 376 people in a theatre configuration.
  • The 3,180 m2 Pinède Hall will complete the new facilities, with capacity of up to 1,320 m2 (net) of stands in an exhibition configuration, up to 10 modulable meeting rooms each capable of accommodating 80 people in a theatre configuration, or a seated meal for up to 1,650 guests in a dining configuration.

 And to take full advantage of the Principality’s privileged location and 300 days of sunshine annually, a further 2,000 m2 of exterior spaces will also be created:

  • The new Indigo terrace: 100 m2;
  • The Emeraude concourse (with the separate entrance to the extension): 610 m2;
  • The patio: 335 m2;
  • The Ravel terrace with its sea views: 585 m2;
  • The covered patio: 375 m2.
