Monaco is preparing to host its 8th annual Top Marques luxury supercar show at the prestigious Grimaldi Forum, catering to the world’s elite.
Top Marques is well known as an exhibition for supercars, amongst other luxury items, even calling itself “the only live supercar show in the world”. This is due to the fact that visitors can not only view, but can also test drive the latest innovations from manufacturers such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin and Bentley. In addition to this, visitors also have the option to create the car of their dreams if they don’t find what they are looking for at the show, with manufacturers such as Maybach and Maserati offering to build one especially for their customers. The show features some of the rarest classics, as well as the latest cutting edge designs. It is also hailed as the place where rich people go shopping for their cars. Not only does Top Marques showcase the newest additions to the motoring world, but it also exhibits fine art, planes, boats, collector’s items, exclusive timepieces and jewellery – featuring a collection of manufacturers that specialise in catering to the luxury sector.
The event has taken place annually since April 2004, with this year’s show running from 14th – 17th April. Prince Albert of Monaco, a well known motor enthusiast, will be opening the event and donating a quarter of the money made from the show to his charity; Monaco Aide et Presence. For the last 7 years Top Marques has worked with the charity to provide much-needed relief to disaster victims around the world, with last year’s focus on helping the victims of the Haiti earthquake in January 2010. Last year’s edition attracted over 30,000 visitors, with around 17,000 of those being high Net-Worth individuals. To ensure that Top Marques reaches out to the right target market, they invite special individuals from their sponsor’s client list, exhibitor’s client database and private club members. They also send out VIP invitations to private banking and finance firms, as well as supercar and yacht clubs.
Tickets to the show are also sold at 50 Euros for each day (around $60), and to find out how to get yours, visit HERE.
