Monaco Economic Board’s 39th Members Rendezvous on 14 September was held on the Observatory Deck at the Yacht Club de Monaco. It was a friendly and constructive return to work for the 220 entrepreneurs presents, after Guillaume Rose outlined key upcoming events, highlighted communication support for members and spoke briefly about MEB’s partnerships relating to Monaco’s digital and energy transition missions.
Unlike last year, MEB members were able to attend this Members Rendezvous in person, armed with their health pass. It was a return to normality for this flagship MEB event, a symbol of recovery for Chairman Michel Dotta in his word of welcome.
Executive Director General Guillaume Rose then highlighted key events planned between now and the end of the year including:
- Business conferences with renowned speakers, now familiar names in the Principality like Jean-Pierre Petit, President of Cahiers Verts de l’Économie (17 September) and Ludovic Subran, Chief Economist of the Allianz Group (14 October) and a Destination Business conference focused on Singapore with Ruchdi Hajjar of SGMC Capital (23 September),
- MEB participation at the Monaco Yacht Show and Monaco Business (6 October) when MEB will formalise its partnership with the Italian Chamber of Commerce Nice, Sophia Antipolis, Côte d’Azur,
- Trade Missions to Antwerp (28-30 September) and Dubai (several trips planned during Expo 2020 Dubai),
- Business Forums when it hosts an Austrian delegation (8/9 November) and at the Ambassadors of Destination Monaco Gala (4 December), and the 10th Nice-Matin Eco Club Awards (30 November).
Guillaume Rose also talked about the various media MEB puts at members’ disposal to help them raise their profile. These include participating in regular business slots on Riviera Radio and more recently on Radio Monaco, both of which have audiences that extend well beyond the Principality’s borders. There are also opportunities to communicate via MEB’s dedicated newsletter, "Nos Adhérents vous proposent".
The Executive Director General finished by summarising actions taken with the interministerial delegation in charge of Monaco’s Digital Transition (digital workshops, joint operations, etc.) and the Digital Transition Mission (MEBinars, incentives to join the National Pact integrated into the membership form and membership renewal, promoting Green Funds to businesses, etc.), a partnership that will continue to grow in the coming months.
The cocktail that followed saw business cards exchanged and contacts made by MEB teams in the Yacht Club de Monaco’s magical setting, ensuring a very successful evening.
