Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer adds a new dimension to business tourism

When it comes to inspiring event backdrops, Monte Carlo is hard to beat.

Booking your business events in the popular Principality is set to get even easier in 2019 with news that Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer (SBM) is to offer a new business tourism hub, right on Casino Square, with endless possibilities for meetings, incentives, conventions, product launches and events.

At the heart of the hub will be a new conference centre, One Monte-Carlo, set to open in spring. Together with Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo and Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo, also owned by Monte-Carlo SBM, the conference centre will virtually double the space dedicated to business tourism around Casino Square.

Built on the site of the old Palais des Beaux-Arts, One Monte-Carlo will offer ten meeting spaces, each of which will bear the name of an artist who has made a mark on Monaco’s history.

Offering a total of 1,445m2, the conference centre will include a plenary room that is the identical reproduction of the legendary Salle des Arts in the former Palais des Beaux-Arts, preserving the building’s Art Deco heritage. This room will be able to host up to 300 people for all kinds of events.

There will also be a large foyer, three modular meeting rooms, a large multi-purpose room adjacent to Salle des Arts and an auditorium that can seat up to 80 people.

One Monte-Carlo’s new meeting spaces will complement the already impressive event facilities available at the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo and Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo.

An iconic luxury property, the 207-room Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo has eight meeting and banqueting rooms, including the stunning listed reception room Salle Empire that can accommodate up to 500 people, and three restaurants including the three-Michelin-starred Le Louis XV - Alain Ducasse à l'Hôtel de Paris. The multi award-winning hotel has also just completed a vast four-year renovation programme.

Hôtel Hermitage boasts 278 rooms and 14 flexible meeting and banqueting spaces, including the multi-purpose Eiffel room for up to 340 theatre-style, the Salle Belle Époque, an opulent, seven-metre high hall shimmering with old-world splendour for up to 400 guests for a cocktail, as well as several stunning outdoor terraces overlooking Monaco’s harbour and the Mediterranean Sea.

Groups staying at both hotels can enjoy complimentary access to the Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo wellness centre, where they can relax in style post-conference.

Meanwhile, opposite One Monte-Carlo, the Boulingrins Gardens, re-landscaped right around Casino Square, will also be available for private functions, creating an exceptional new venue for events and cocktails.

Monte-Carlo SBM’s new business tourism hub will not only offer planners venues with real soul, steeped in more than 150 years of history, but provide an entire destination at hand, combining accommodation, conference and banqueting rooms, bars and restaurants, sport and cultural activities such as Opéra Monte-Carlo.

This means that entire event itineraries can be easily planned across the three venues – all within easy walking distance of each other – and organisers can manage their event using the services of a single project manager, creating unforgettable experiences for their delegates.
