Three Gold Medals for Monaco

The country may not be much bigger than New York Central Park, but the tiny Principality of Monaco walked off with three big prizes at the 2010 British Meeting and Incentive Travel Magazine Awards. The Fairmont Monte Carlo, The Grimaldi Forum Monaco, and the Monaco Convention Bureau were all voted number one in their category. Over 7,600 readers voted on 22 categories. The Fairmont Monte Carlo was among 274 nominees in its category of “Best Hotels” and won the best prize ahead of other prestigious establishments such as the Ritz Carlton Arts in Barcelona, the Four Seasons in Istanbul and Malta’s Hilton Hotel. The Grimaldi Forum Monaco was voted “Best Congress Center” for the seventh time in the last eight years beating its rival in Cape Town, in Vancouver and in Singapore. The triple gold recognition of the destination of Monaco is the perfect reflection of its slogan “Need a venue, we offer you a country”.
