The world’s foremost property and real estate show, MIPIM, returns to the Palais de Festivals, in Cannes, France from 15-18 March. Global property developers, builders, architects and landowners will descend on the Cote d’Azur for the 27th time.
The show, with full French name ‘Le marché international des professionnels de l’immobilier’ (MIPIM), is a vast annual networking symposium, exhibition and conference to host discussion and summit sessions concerning the global housing and real estate markets.
The theme of MIPIM 2016 is ‘housing the world’ – how developers can meet the world’s housing requirements whilst maintaining standards and sustainability. We take a look at what will be on the agenda this year.
March of the start-ups
This year for the first time, MIPIM will give recognition to the start-ups changing the urban landscape. Promising a chance to “meet the real estate game changers”, the MIPIM Startup Competition will scour the earth, searching for the leading global real estate and urban management start-ups.
London, Hong Kong, and Cannes will be on the tour list, as MIPIM delves into these metropolises and seeks out “the most dynamic and promising international start-ups”, with a message to exhibitors and attendees to “discover what your businesses are missing out on.” The first of its kind in the world, the MIPIM Startup Competition will honour the companies who may help lead the world into a sustainable future.
