The 9th Eco Club Trophies have been awarded to local businesses that have “adapted to an unprecedented context by demonstrating resilience and creativity”.
Jointly organised by the Monaco Economic Board (MEB) and the Nice-Matin Group, seven companies were honoured at the Grimaldi Forum in November for their resilience in a year unlike any we have ever seen. For this, the 9thedition, the Eco Club altered the names of the awards to be more in line with the challenges of the past year.
As such, the International and Outreach of Monaco trophies have been changed this year and replaced by the Economic Rebound and Covid Solidarity Prize trophies.
Master of Ceremonies, Guillaume Rose, the Executive Director General of MEB, welcomed the two guests on this evening. The first being the Editorial Director of the Nice-Matin Group, Denis Carreaux who aptly stated that “despite the circumstances, it seemed essential to us to maintain this meeting which each year celebrates the dynamism, variety and creativity of the Monegasque economy.”
Then MEB President Michel Dotta ended his welcoming remarks with a quote from Margaret Drabble: “When you are sure of nothing, anything is possible.”
A short presentation produced by the technical team and Monaco Info was then shown and the awards were presented.
