May 1, 2017 – Monaco – The Spring Edition of Monaco Growth Forums marked our 7th Forum since 2015 and was judged a unique success by presenters and delegates. The Spring Edition was also our second Dual City conference following our Tech Tour in Dubai and Abu Dhabi and further established our unique investor platform for international growth companies.
Commencing at the Mondrian Hotel in London on April 24th, the first day of presentations included a luncheon with Keynote Speaker, Clara Durodie, discussing the topic of “Artificial Intelligence in the Digital Age.” The afternoon One-on-One meetings with investors were followed by a lively Cocktail Reception at the Dandelyan Bar of the Mondrian. Over 50 guests enjoyed Cascina Ballarin Barolo wines, hors d’oeuvres, and networking. The reception continued at 8:30 with a select group convening for dinner at Gordon Ramsay’s Union Street for dinner and lively conversations that lasted well into the evening.
The Monaco Edition kicked off on Tuesday evening, April 25th with a Barolo Wine and Champagne Tasting at Maison du Caviar, which served as the location for our investors to meet our 12 CEOs. Over 80 International investors, many of whom traveled to Monaco for the event showed up to welcome them. The guests stayed at the five-star Metropole Hotel in the heart of Monaco. The next morning on April 26th, CEO of Monaco Growth Forums, Andreea Porcelli, gave her opening remarks – welcoming CEOs and guests from over 30 countries.
Eleven company presentations in the sectors of Biotech, Medtech, Artificial Intelligence, Alternative Medicine, Electronics, Fintech and Consumer Goods and Specialty Foods entertained the audience, which included many well-known fund managers, family offices and two members of Royal families, Prince Michael of Yugoslavia and Prince Emanuele Filiberto di Savoia of Italy. Mr. Di Savoia also presented his Prince of Venice Specialty Food Company.
A seated luncheon was followed by a short transit to the Wine Palace at the Monaco Yacht Club. Presenters and investors engaged in One-on-One meetings while enjoying the fabulous views of the Monte Carlo Harbor in this exclusive place loved by many local residents. The CEOs were pleased by the number of One-on-One meetings, as well as the relaxing ambiance where they were held.
The three- day Forum wound down with a Champagne Reception at the wine Palace followed by a Gala Dinner at Maison du Caviar, once again accompanied by exclusive Barolo wines provided by Cascina Ballarin.
