International investors are expected to attend MIPIM UK 2017. The real estate trade show targets leading real estate decision-makers operating at a national, regional and local level in cities throughout England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
Running to its fourth consecutive year, MIPIM UK has 75 companies confirmed to exhibit in October; the event organiser is confident more companies will book in the coming weeks. The event attracted 100 exhibitors last year.
In March, MIPIM Cannes unveiled a survey that confirmed global international investors remain committed to the UK real estate market despite the ongoing uncertainty over Brexit. The survey canvassed 60 of the world’s leading institutional investors who together manage over $600 billion in real estate assets. KPMG conducted the study.
Ronan Vaspart, director of the MIPIM events, commented: “The survey demonstrates the continuing strength of the appetite among global real estate investors for opportunities in the UK real estate market despite ongoing economic and political uncertainty. It also highlights issues that will be explored in detail at MIPIM UK in October.”
The survey canvassed 60 of the world’s leading institutional investors attending the RE-Invest Summit at MIPIM Cannes in March this year. KPMG conducted the study.
MIPIM UK will reflect on the shifting landscape looking into threats and opportunities. The theme of this year’s event is UK Real Estate: The Next Chapter and the content of the programme explores the profound and far-reaching impact the changes will have on the industry.
Organised by Reed MIDEM, a subsidiary of Reed Exhibitions, MIPIM UK conference sessions will provide analysis and debate of key issues, including infrastructure, regeneration, housing, the aging population, urban logistics, retail investment, the future of the workplace, innovation and proptech.
MIPIM UK will also host an Investors’ Summit and will feature leading thinkers and speakers from across the property industry, as well as politics and economics. The real estate trade show is on 18-19 October at London Olympia.
