The Tourism and Convention Bureau (DTC) and its hotel partners, the Meridien Beach Plaza and the Fairmont Monte-Carlo, have recently returned from Ukraine, where they held a successful promotional tour.

Monaco’s delegation met more than a hundred professionals, who were all very interested in the topics presented. HE Mrs Dumont, French Ambassador in Kiev, met the Monegasque delegation to discuss possible future collaboration in Ukraine.

Tourists from Ukraine are already ranked twelfth in terms of nationalities visiting the Principality, and there is still a real potential for growth, according to the DTC.

The cities targeted were Kiev and Dnipro, where the delegation met tour operators and agents to showcase the Principality’s strengths, notably its new attractions: the CHPG Check-Up Unit and medical tourism and well-being in general. Also promoted were the “Dinner in the Sky” scheduled for July in Monaco, and the next Formula E Grand Prix on May 13.

Paolo Sari, Michelin-star Executive Chef Monte-Carlo Beach, told Monaco Life, “I believe that Dinner in the Sky could represent something innovative in Monaco. The sky platform will be like any other restaurant. The chosen chefs are professionals and they are used to perform in sometimes extreme conditions. On the other hand, it will be just one-man show as the chef will be in front of all the clients, relating directly to them, cooking in front of them.

“It’s in the same spirit of the Route du Goût, one in the sky, the other on the sea. That’s why I decided to take part in this project. Monaco is 20 years behind other cities like Paris, Milan, New York, Tokyo, and strongly needs to move on through some different events.”
