“It is with great regret that we have decided to postpone the 17th edition of Top Marques due to the uncertainty of the evolution of COVID-19. The health of our teams, our exhibitors, our sponsors and partners and all our visitors is our priority, and unfortunately, the current situation will not allow for the show to take place as planned in June,” said CEO Salim Zeghdar.
"However, the celebrations will be even greater in 2021, with our new department dedicated to classic cars which we believe will make the show complete."
The 17th edition of Top Marques, due to be held in Monaco’s Grimaldi Forum from June 10 to 14, 2020, will now take place in the same venue from June 9 to 13, 2021.
Tickets already purchased for the 2020 edition will be fully reimbursed via the same channels through which the tickets were reserved (Grimaldi Forum or Fnac Spectacles).
About Top Marques:
Billed “the most exclusive automobile show in the world” by the New York Times, Top Marques is an annual supercar event held in the heart of Monaco, the undisputed international capital of luxury.
Attended by many of the biggest names in the supercar and hypercar industry as well as a large number of niche independent manufacturers, Top Marques is the international automobile event to attend for those wanting to buy – or sell – the very latest models.
Under the patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco since its conception 17 years ago, the show has also become a unique event for all those interested in revolutionary innovations which will shape the transport of tomorrow.
The 17th edition of Top Marques will be held from June 9 to 13, 2021, in the Grimaldi Forum. Overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, this award-winning congress centre acts as the perfect venue for this exceptional automobile show.
Since the first edition in 2004, more than one hundred new models have made their debut on to the global supercar stage at Top Marques, with last year breaking all records. No less than 8 world premieres including the latest McLaren Grand Tourer and Aston Martin DBS Superleggera OHMSS were unveiled by H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco on the opening day.
The show has also become synonymous with cutting-edge technology with many manufacturers from as far and as wide as Australia, America and the Far East choosing Top Marques as the launchpad for their ground-breaking inventions.
After an extremely successful first edition under the management of Monaco Check-In in June 2019, a new category dedicated to classic cars will be launched in 2021.
Founded in 2007 and managed by Salim Zeghdar, Monaco Check-In is one of the Principality’s leading receptive and event companies. Key events organised by Monaco Check-In include the 83rd Interpol General Assembly and the Ministerial Conference of La Francophonie for the Prince’s Government. Monaco Check-In is also the receptive agency for the Société des Bains de Mer, the Monaco Yacht Show and the Anti-Aging Medicine World Congress.
Under the arm of Monaco Live Production, the company also organises Les Sérénissimes de l’Humour every Spring at the Grimaldi Forum; major concerts such as Robbie Williams, held to mark the 10-year reign of H.S.H. Prince Albert II, the Eagles and Jean-Michel Jarre during the royal wedding in 2011, as well as Monaco events such as the Dior and Louis Vuitton fashion shows.
