GMI MIPIM Deal with Place Featured Image

GMI joins forces with Place North West for MIPIM

The construction company will work with Place North West to maximise its time at the international property conference in Cannes.

GMI Construction Group delivers projects across the North and Midlands. Chief executive Lee Powell and North West managing director Marc Banks will be attending MIPIM.

In addition to being a Place North West partner, GMI will be sponsoring the Place MIPIM Arrival Reception on 13 March.

Lee Powell, chief executive of GMI Construction Group, said: “GMI is delighted to be partnering with Place North West at MIPIM 2023. This is a key date in our calendar as we raise the profile of our UK-wide business even further.

“GMI has a stronghold in Manchester and is very active across the North delivering schemes across many different sectors,” Powell continued.

“Teaming up with Place North West will only amplify our message and progress of our 10-year vision to be a £750m business.”

Powell also teased an announcement at MIPIM from GMI, noting the success the company has experienced in the past year.

“GMI has had a very good year,” he said. “One where we picked up a national award for contractor of the year and our business, across many regions, not just the North West, is going from strength to strength.

“We hope that at MIPIM we will be able to share some very exciting news for the North West region at the biggest construction festival of the year.”

GMI joins a robust list of Place North West clients and partners at MIPIM. Those working with Place at the conference include Rochdale Development Agency, Together, Reich Insurance, Shoosmiths, Marketing Manchester, Wigan Council, Wardell Armstrong, Salford City Council, Eden Planning, JMW Solicitors, Luma Marketing, Morgan Sindall Construction, P4 Planning, Russells, Savills, Civic Engineers, and Lexington.

Place commercial director Dino Moutsopoulos said that he was “very pleased” to work with GMI at MIPIM.

“I have watched GMI successfully enter the North West market over the past few years and I am proud they have chosen Place North West to help them at MIPIM this year,” Moutsopoulos said.

“Having been briefed on their plans for 2023 and beyond, you can expect to see a lot of GMI over the coming years,” he continued.

“I look forward to helping spread the word of GMI and introducing them to the wider Place readership.”

Place is continuing to offer a selection of bespoke business development and thought leadership opportunities at MIPIM. These include corporate boat charters, roundtables, and videos. Opportunities are limited, however, so email Dino Moutsopoulos to avoid disappointment.
