The Dubai World Expo is coming to an end.

Thanks to the mobilization of the pavilion teams, more than one million visitors came to see our installations, which is truly a great reward for all our efforts.

We would like to thank the Monegasque authorities for this wonderful opportunity to show our work to the whole world and for their confidence in our ability to represent the Principality with dignity through our actions.

Of course, we would also like to thank the team in charge of the Monaco Pavilion who met our expectations during the setting up of our dedicated events and who, more broadly, kept the pavilion alive throughout the exhibition.

Finally, of course, thank you to the entire team who worked hard to ensure that we lived up to the event and the expectations placed upon us.

Of course, we can’t hide our hope to be part of the next world exhibition since it will take place in Osaka, Japan, but this is another story…
