As one of the biggest property events in the industry comes to a close, we draw our attention to MIPIM UK.
From 18-19 October 2017, key influencers and stakeholders in UK real estate will head to Olympia London for one of the most comprehensive property conferences in the calendar.
MIPIM UK’s theme is “UK Real Estate – The Next Chapter” which will explore how the UK is responding to the immediate challenges of the property market, investment opportunities, and Brexit.
Here are just a few highlights of what to expect from this year’s programme…
In partnership with the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry and sponsored by BNP Paribas, the London @MIPIMUK area is an interactive exhibition zone dedicated to all things London and the people shaping its future. Seminars will highlight the capital’s leading development opportunities and debates will explore current issues impacting the city.
Skills and development
MIPIM UK 2017 is now a member of the CPD (Continuing Professional Development) Certification Service and will provide opportunities for developing skills and knowledge at the conference. The CPD conference programme will cover everything from investment, development, global opportunities, innovation and housing. Check out the full list of CPD conferences on the MIPIM UK website to find out more.
It’s no surprise that WIRED editor, Greg Williams, has been chosen to open this year’s conference given the impact technology has had on UK real estate. Check out Greg’s recent interview for a flavour of what to expect from his keynote speech, as well as his opinion on the areas of real estate most ripe for disruption.
Last but by no means least, a new networking area sponsored by Resiland will feature for the first time allowing you to connect with like-minded professionals during the conference. And while we’re all for chance encounters, we also recommend downloading the MIPIM UK app so you can view delegates’ profiles who match your business requirements in advance.
With more than 3,000 participants from across real estate, including big names such as Balfour Beatty, Aviva, Kier, Regus, Trinity and Trowers & Hamlins, this year’s MIPIM UK is not to be missed. We’ll see you there.
On a final note, our Maximising MIPIM blog is back and we’ll be blogging on all things MIPIM 2018 to make sure everyone’s set for the main event in Cannes.
Please get in touch if you’d like to get involved, share any events your company is hosting, or even give us a hot tip!
We have a feeling that MIPIM 2018 will be our best yet.
