Just the type of Event & Lifestyle we live for!
Top Marques Monaco is an event that takes place annually at the Grimaldi Forum in the principality of Monaco. It features exhibitions by numerous purveyors of luxury aircraft, automobile, boat, watches, jewelry etc. A quarter of the event’s ticket sales are donated to Monaco Aide et Présence, a charity established by Monaco’s reigning Prince Albert.
Under the High Patronage of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, Top Marques evolves in continuity, from May 30 to June 3 at the Grimaldi Forum. After the takeover of Top Marques by Monaco Check-In last summer, its Deputy President Salim Zeghdar spoke of his desire to return to the DNA of Top Marques: “Top Marques Monaco is above all a market where the ‘manufacturers’ supply and consumer demand. And we are creating this market by bringing the two together! “
