Monaco’s Tourism and Convention Bureau (DTC) celebrated another successful year on Monday at the Meridien Beach Plaza at the annual meeting of its overseas offices.
The Director of Tourism and Congress, Guillaume Rose, presented the 2016 assessment of tourism in the Principality and the objectives for the coming year. During the evening, a film was shown highlighting the activities and promotions of the DTC in various parts of the world, which was met with great enthusiasm.
Serge Telle, Minister of State, Jean Castellini, Minister of Finance and Economy, and all DTC’s partners were in attendance. The presentation ended with a discovery of Monaco in virtual reality as well as a parade featuring hotel partners and the new collection of designer Elizabeth Wessel.
During his annual address to the press, National Council President Stéphane Valeri was optimistic for 2022, saying "there are reasons to hope that we can get back to a quasi-normal life.”
Nice Côte d’Azur airport ended 2021 with over 6.5 million passengers passing through, higher than expected and fuelled mainly by a strong summer season and the return of long-haul flights.
It is expected to be another mild, sunny weekend at the region’s ski resorts with plenty of standing snow, while Valberg will be hosting a Monte-Carlo Rallye event on Friday.
The celebration of Sainte Devote, Monaco’s Patron Saint, will be held next week, and again this year the Principality is taking adapted measures to ensure the health and safety of all who wish to participate.
