Nearly 350 economic players from the Principality were gathered for the 30th Monaco Economic Board’s Members Rendez-Vous on Monday, September 18, to enjoy an event optimised for business meetings.

Originally planned on the terraces of the Observatory Deck of the flagship of the Yacht Club of Monaco, it took place on the no less elegant Ballroom due to unstable weather conditions. For this new edition, the Monaco Economic Board has brought innovation to the forefront.

Companies took part in BtoB meetings on the sidelines of the cocktail networking, a novelty unanimously welcomed by members. A total of 70 meetings were held, connecting 90 entrepreneurs for 57 companies.

The first selected start-ups from the MonacoTech Incubator Accelerator program, created by the Monegasque state in partnership with Monaco Telecom and Xavier Niel, were invited also, in the presence of Jean Castellini, Minister of Finance and Economy.

Fabrice Marquet, Managing Director of MonacoTech, testified to the virtuous dynamics surrounding this project, whereas the second session of selection of start-ups by the Jury, which once again praised the quality of the candidates, took place on the same day.

In his speech, Michel Dotta then discussed the current situation of the MEB.

The programme includes a follow-up economic mission to Moscow (October 4-6) within the framework of the Monaco Days organised by the Ambassador of Monaco in Russia HE Mireille Pettiti, in partnership with the DTC, the Monte Carlo Ballets and the Monte-Carlo Princess Grace Check-Up Unit; the hosting of a Swedish economic delegation (October 12), as part of Prince Carl Philip’s visit to the Principality; the conference of Ludovic Subran, Chief Economist of Euler Hermes and Allianz, in partnership with JCEM, on the theme “The United States at the Foot of the Wall” (October 17); and the Eco Club of Monaco Awards in partnership with the Nice-Matin Group (November 28).
