Under the High Patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II, the Principality of Monaco hosted the 4th edition of the Chefs World Summit, which proved to be a great success and celebration punctuated by warm and friendly encounters.
Under the direction of Philippe Joannes, the sponsorship of Christophe Bacquié and Michel Roth and the logistical organisation of Didier Aniès, around 2200 participants were able to appreciate high quality conferences given by about a hundred speakers.
The Editorial Committee, led by Catherine Decuyper (CWS founder), featuring Régis Marcon, Philippe Moreau-Chevollet (MCBG Conseil), Guillaume Erblang-Rotaru (Food & Sense), Rémi Ohayon (Api & You), Julien Deyrat (Ambassade Conseil), Alexis Lalo (Relais & Châteaux), Anne Luzin (Le Chef) and Guillaume Féré (Les Collectionneurs) has built a strong and high-quality program that resulted in many messages of great satisfaction from the participants.
