From the end of May to the beginning of June, the Monaco Government Tourist and Convention Bureau, of which we are the Japanese secretariat, held various events.

The Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra, with Kazuki Yamada as Artistic Director and Music Director, held performances at Suntory Hall on May 27th and 28th, 2024🎶

After the performance on the 28th, the Ambassador of the Principality of Monaco and the Monaco Tourist & Convention Authority co-hosted a cocktail party for about 70 guests🥂

The Ambassador of the Principality of Monaco welcomed all the invitees with his greetings, and after the performance, Mr. Yamada arrived at the venue to chat with the guests about the performance and about Monaco.

We received many comments that they would love to hear the performance next time in Monaco✨

On May 28th and May 29th, the Monaco Tourist & Convention Authority participated in Sakidori France, a tourism workshop held every year in the early summer!

Sakidori France is a workshop in which tourism staff from various regions of France come to Japan to exchange information directly with travel agencies and media.
Monaco, a neighboring country, participates in this workshop every year✨

This year, the Monaco booth welcomed a sales director from Fairmont Monte Carlo, a luxury resort located in the heart of Monaco, to introduce the attractions and recent developments in Monaco.

It was a very valuable experience to be able to hear the local voices in France and Monaco!

On Tuesday, June 4, 2024, the Monaco Government Tourist and Convention Bureau hosted a seminar and luncheon for the media and trade on “Monaco, Like No Where Else”! 🇲🇨✨

Held at the Bulgari Hotel Tokyo which opened last year, the event welcomed about 100 guests and featured cocktails made with Monaco’s organic liqueur Orangerie and buffet-style Italian cuisine🥂

We also had the pleasure of having the SBM Monte Carlo Japan representative and the Fairmont Monte Carlo sales manager to give us the latest information about Monaco 👀

The event was full of attractions, including a speech by the Monaco Ambassador, a lucky draw to win prizes including a stay at the luxury hotels in Monaco, and a video message from Minamino, a very successful player in AS Monaco♥️
