Monaco chooses to focus on innovation at the TEDxMonteCarlo


Monaco is taking preparation for hosting the celebrated event TEDxMonteCarlo for the second year. This time, the tourism sector will take a cutting-edge approach to put forth innovation at the centre of its policy.

TEDxMonteCarlo is a conference that takes place once in a year in Monte Carlo. The mission of the event is to give local organisations, communities, and individuals to share ideas by interacting through TED-like experiences.

The speakers can talk about a range of things – science, entertainment, technology, business, and more. This year, more than 16 speakers will share their innovative ideas on some hot topics such as security, transparency, entrepreneurship. The speeches are likely to focus on the current world challenges and how to react to the status quo.

This year’s event will take place at Monaco’s Grimaldi Forum on Saturday, November 11. Themed around the slogan ‘License to Know’, over 600 people will join the event to listen and actively participate in the sharing of ideas.
