Venue and Accomodation

One of the main reasons that Monaco was chosen as a location for the Alphega Pharmacy European Convention 2019 is the exceptional conference facilities provided by the Grimaldi Forum. The venue has a large central area for our plenary sessions as well as plenty of space to accommodate all of our plans for the event.

As well as providing everything for the Convention sessions, the Grimaldi Forum is located within easy walking distance of the hotels and has excellent links to public transport. Read below to find out more about the Alphega Pharmacy European Convention 2019 venues…

The Grimaldi Forum is a conference and congress centre located on Monaco's eastern seafront.

The venue regularly hosts international conferences and seminars and as well as Les Ballets de Monte Carlo, the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra also regularly performs there.

These facilities were highlighted at two UK award ceremonies in February 2011 when it was named Best Overseas Congress Centre at the annual M&IT awards and COOLest Overseas Venue at the COOL Venues Awards ceremony, organised by the British magazine Prestige Events.

It is one of the most eco-friendly conference venues in Europe and its commitment to being ‘green' means that it has won a number of awards and certificates.

Walking is by far the best way to get around Monaco; however, there are some areas, such as the Exotic Gardens, that require a large change in elevation and therefore make for rather strenuous hikes.

There are also seven public escalators and elevators (free of charge) that can help navigate the steep slopes of the city.
