Return on investment and value for money is discussed with all clients but always ensuring that you have understood the objectives and expectations are essential for any request.
We need to create new ideas, new concepts which are locally sourced and sustainable with an added value that will be inspiring for the clients and their guests. Simplicity can be the key sometime, CMX Events always think outside the box as we know that we are in an industry which is changing on a regular basis and we have to adapt to all the new trends to inspire our clients. The team and I are always following the trends and sometimes we even create them!
What’s new in Monaco?
In 2019, Monte-Carlo is launching One Monte-Carlo together with the newly refurbished Hotel de Paris and the Hotel Hermitage, therefore offering a new business tourism hub, right in the heart of Monte-Carlo and the Casino square, with endless possibilities for meetings, conventions, product launches and events.
Monaco is always re-inventing itself as we are in a destination where expectations are very high. We are lucky to have a fantastic selection of venues, restaurants and activities and there is always something new to propose to our clients.
The Principality has also started creating an ambitious six hectares eco land extension reclaimed from the sea, which will increase the Grimaldi Forum Monaco exhibition capacity by 50% by 2025.
Monaco Telecom will be the first in offering 5G services by the end of 2019 making Monaco one of the first 5G Nation in Europe.
When it comes to Monaco, many event buyers feel they have “been there, done that”. How do you persuade them to consider Monte-Carlo again?
Well of course everybody knows Monaco and we all have our perception or experience of the destination. CMX Events is here to show that even if you think you know Monaco, you have to think again and discover the unexpected one, the one created especially for you.
Our passionate team is able to design a tailor-made program that combines exclusive sought-after experiences and unexpected genuine elements that will show you why Monaco should be your next destination and trust me we deliver wow factors, prime entertainments, and extraordinary experiences to show you why you should come to Monaco again and again!
What are your favourite hidden gems in Monte-Carlo?
We have so many hidden gems and secrets in Monaco and Monte-Carlo where should I start?
CMX Events being a local company, opening doors & facilitating connections is our speciality and we have fabulous options in and around the Principality.
The exclusive Princess Grace Suite at the Hotel de Paris for me is a unique asset of our destination for an exclusive Product Launch or party. There is also Les Perles de Monaco – the only oyster farm in the Principality- with an incredible location and products for a casual lunch by the sea. Stunning private villas directly on the edge of the sea….., some of the best kept secrets in Monaco and the nearby surroundings.
CMX Event has so many gems to choose from, contact us and we will definitely share them with you!
inVOYAGE 2019 will take place in Monaco on 6-9 October. International luxury event planners interested in attending the event can sign up now.
