More than 45,000 visitors attended Top Marques Monaco 2017, smashing all previous records for ticket sales in the motor show’s 14 year history.
«We say it every year, but this edition of Top Marques really was an incredible show of technology, innovation and the very best in luxury products, and in my mind, our greatest Top Marques to date,” Manoj Bairstow, managing director of Top Marques Monaco, said after the show, held from 20th to 23rd April in the grimaldi Forum.
« The atmosphere in the Grimaldi Forum and around Monaco throughout Top Marques was electric, and we were delighted with the number of visitors that came over the four days.
« Each year the attendance numbers grow significantly. We are now seeing visitors from all over the world at Top Marques which is a testament to the quality of our exhibitors,” said Mr Bairstow, speaking on behalf of his partners Steven Saltzman and Mederic del Monaco.
He added: « None of this would have been possible without the help of all our sponsors, especially the Edmond de Rothschild Group who have given us an enormous amount of support over the last five years. We are incredibly grateful to them, as we are Dotta Immobilier, Burgess Superyachts, Silversea, Gruppo Meregalli, Sivelena, The Société des Bains de Mer and Monaco’s Direction du Tourisme et des Congrès.”
