GALLERY | Place MIPIM Preview
Place MIPIM Partner packages have now sold out, but there are still ways that Place North can help your brand make the most out of the international property conference – as those attending our Place MIPIM Preview event on Tuesday found out.
Place has opportunities surrounding sponsorship of our MIPIM Arrival Reception on 11 March and a breakfast event on 13 March. There is also availability regarding video commentary, boat charters, and private dining.
At MIPIM, Place will be the “voice of the North”, according to Place North managing partner and head of commercial Dino Moutsopoulos.
“Do the investors of Europe and the world know who are the best-in-class in the North of England?” Moutsopoulos asked the crowd at the Place MIPIM Preview event, which was held at WSP’s Manchester office.
Moutsopoulos continued: “Who can help them meet the North’s businesses? Who can help put them together? That is, I think, what we’ve been doing at Place for a number of years.”
He added: “We are very proud to be a Northern business. Let’s showcase the best of what we have here.”
Looking beyond just Place North’s offering, the MIPIM event provided hints of what MIPIM delegates can expect from the event in Cannes.
Dan Cook, the director for the UK and Ireland built environment markets at MIPIM organiser RX Global, was on hand to give a first look at the 2024 conference. This year, the event will have a day devoted to residential development.
He also spoke about how MIPIM has maintained its relevance since its inception over the past 30 years.
“We attract something like 73 of the top 100 institutional investors,” Cook said. “We are also attracting increasing numbers of cities around the world, whether it be from the Middle East, East Asia, or Latin America.
“There’s an amazing chance to attract new business and also learn from the built environment and related industries from right around the globe,” he continued.
“That’s where MIPIM is really unique and why it is continuing to be an international destination for leaders across the built environment sector.”
Manchester chief executive Joanne Roney also teased the city region’s plans for the international property conference next year at Place’s official MIPIM preview event last night.
Greater Manchester will return to MIPIM in 2024 with a stand that will offer three networking sessions each day to help enable the discussions that lead to further investment in the region.
“We’ll be going to MIPIM this year really clear about our ambition and our vision for the future,” Roney told those gathered at the Place event.
“We’ll be going to MIPIM this year absolutely clear by what we mean by an inclusive economic growth agenda and how we can collectively work together – businesses and the public sector – to really start to make a difference to our communities,” she said.
Andy Temple, senior operations director for property and buildings at WSP, shared why his company makes a point to attend MIPIM.
“MIPM’s a fantastic event,” he said. “We get to see our clients. We get to engage with local authorities. It’s a really great event where we can engage and showcase all the great things and the great innovations that we do as a business.”
