Partnerships

The Monte Carlo Philarmonic Orchestra

The Monte Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra promotes Monaco’s image throughout the world. This orchestra, established more than a century ago, stands out for its skill and quality and is a channel of communication unimpeded by language and cultural barriers, thanks to a dimension that transcends the boundaries of classical music.

Based in Monaco, OPMC draws classical music lovers to the Principality. Through its tours and recordings, it has built up an international audience and enhances Monaco’s reputation throughout the world.

The Grimaldi Forum

The Grimaldi Forum, whose construction was begun by Prince Rainier III in 1994, is Monaco’s leading cultural and business tourist centre.

The Grimaldi Forum enhances Monaco’s reputation far outside its borders, bringing it a modern and dynamic dimension through a wide variety of shows and events.

It draws a varied public, with a focus on the upper end of the market.

CMB’s partnership with the Grimaldi Forum reflects the Bank’s goal for excellence as well as its commitment to innovate in Monaco and foster diversity.

The Grimaldi Forum is a multi-faceted amenity that draws Monegasque residents and international audiences with a rich and varied offer.

The Oceanographic Museum of Monaco

Monaco’s Oceanographic Museum embodies Monaco’s long-standing interest in and commitment to issues that concern the entire world.

CMB is the Museum’s Official Partner and empathises fully with its missions. The Oceanographic Museum is an institution of world repute located in Monaco.

The Museum’s mission is to raise awareness of the seas and oceans and to contribute to their conservation.

The Museum focuses on sustainable development, respect for diversity and responsibility within the community. These are values that CMB shares to the full, in its role of a ‘Model’ establishment, that is committed to, and with a responsibility towards Monaco.

CMB is attentive to its clients’ needs; within a lasting relationship built on total respect for diversity, the Bank treats each client as unique, with unique aspirations, and offers a personalised service to help achieve these aspirations.

The Lycée Technique et Hôtelier de Monaco

The partnership with Monaco’s School of Hotel Management (Lycée Hôtelier) reflects CMB’s policy of strengthening its role as a committed and involved player in the Monegasque community.

The School of Hotel Management in Monte Carlo gives young talent the opportunity to develop, which is an aim that CMB pursues with its own employees.

The skills developed in the Hotel Management School will be put to use in the tourism and luxury hotel sector that represents a large part of Monaco’s economy.

The Hotel Management School strives to achieve excellence and prestige in the area of service, which is the same goal as CMB seeks to achieve in its private banking activity.

Monaco Inter Expo

Monaco Inter Expo (MIE), a Monegasque limited company (société anonyme monégasque), represents the Principality at trade fairs, events and conferences and promotes Monaco’s influence in the world.

Founded in 1997 at the instigation of Prince Rainier III of Monaco, Monaco Inter Expo organises the Principality’s participation in major world and international exhibitions, or expos. Thanks to its work, Monaco was present at the world expos in Hanover, Shanghai and Milan, together with the specialised international expos in Lisbon, Zaragoza, Yeosu and Astana. The next event will be in Dubai in 2020 and will be the first world expo to be held in the Middle Eastern, African and South Asian (MEASA) region. It will focus on three key themes chosen for the event: opportunity, mobility and sustainability.

Under the leadership of Managing Director, Mr Albert Croesi, MIE has also launched an initiative involving cultural “meetings” of the "Grimaldi of Monaco historical sites". The first of these events will take place in June 2018, with guests of honour the Marquisate of Les Baux, the County of Carladès and the City of Menton.

Innovation and openness to the world are values that unite CMB and MIE, forming the basis of their five-year-old partnership. "By supporting Monaco Inter Expo, CMB was honoured to receive the Monaco Banking Ambassador award in 2017" affirmed CMB Chairman Etienne Franzi. CMB attended the opening of Monaco’s pavilion at the international exhibition in Astana in 2017 and will again be present alongside MIE for the world expo in Dubai in 2020.
