EventsNewsMonacair Influencers Awards Monaco Pilot Maria

Earlier this month, Monacair had the pleasure of welcoming aboard over 100 of the world’s most powerful influencers as they travelled with us to the principality for the inaugural Influencer Awards Monaco. It’s an event that has the potential to become the equivalent of the Oscars of the social media world.

If you live in Monaco or are a frequent visitor to the region, you’ll already know that there’s no better way to transfer to and from the principality than on a luxury Monaco helicopter: our regular line from Nice Côte d’Azur Airport takes just seven minutes and passengers are treated to breathtaking views of the French Riviera. For many of the influencers, however, the event was their first visit to this azure stretch of coast and what an introduction we were able to give to them.


Here is a selection of some of the shots shared on Instagram:

The ceremony itself was a world first, held on the evening of October 7th, at the Le Méridien Beach Plaza Hotel. During the gala celebration, awards were presented in 11 categories, including fashion, beauty, lifestyle, health & fitness, food, and travel. The ultimate accolade, ‘Influencer of the Year,’ was awarded to Murad Osmann, the account behind the #followmetoo campaign.

Yet there was much more to the 2018 Influencer Awards Monaco than just the black-tie celebration. With accommodation in some of Monaco’s finest hotels, the influencers had 48 hours to soak up lifestyle in the principality and were treated to Champagne brunches and introduced to the best Monaco nightlife.

Of course, it was all extensively shared with followers around the globe across the influencers’ social media networks!

We’re already looking forward to the 2019 event!
