Social event


Delegates and their accompanying people are cordially invited to attend the social event which is planned on the 19th October 2005. It will be organized in the Negresco Palace (about 3 km from the Acropolis). The social event will take place in the Salon Royal where Baccarat crystal and Royal portraits gaze at the ' Nana ' of Niki de Saint Phalle.


Built in 1912, overlooking the famous Bay of Angels, and classified a National Historic Monument, the Hotel Negresco is one of the few remaining privately owned palaces still existing in the world.


For nearly a century, the mythical Hotel NEGRESCO has dominated the Promenade des Anglais on the Baie des Anges with its huge pink dome.


Its magical name evokes a certain "art de vivre" and the happy go lucky days of the "Edwardian era".

Henri NEGRESCO, born in 1868, constructed the hotel in 1912. The son of a Rumanian innkeeper, he left his home at the age of 15 in order to travel around Europe. From Paris he went to Monaco and then to Nice where he became the director of the Municipal Casino. At this time he was already quite famous and heads of state, princes and the American "kings" of finance, the Rockefellers, the Vanderbildts and the Singers had all heard of Negresco!

His dream was to build a palace worthy of his prestigious clients and he entrusted the construction of his "palace" to one of the most talented architects of that time, Edouard Niermans.

Since 1957, the hotel has been owned by Jeanne AUGIER who has put all her energy into creating a museum-hotel that has become a veritable showcase of French art for her international visitors. Throughout the hotel, epic periods in the history of France are represented, from the Renaissance to the 3rd Millenium.


In 2003, the Hotel Negresco was listed a National Historic Building - a well earned recognition for the Hotel, its exceptional architecture and the superb art collection that it houses.
