Here are five reasons why you should be thinking about hosting your next business event at the Fairmont Monte Carlo:

2. Modular meeting spaces
As a business meeting destination, the Fairmont Monte Carlo is second to none. It boasts the largest meeting and event facilities on the French Riviera, with more 4,500sq/m of meeting space, including 18 meeting rooms and more than 30 breakout rooms for smaller groups.

3. Banqueting and catering expertise

4. Eco-friendly meetings
