Liverpool and Manchester commit to MIPIM 2023

The two North West cities will be exhibiting at the international property conference in Cannes, alongside London, Cardiff, and Newcastle.

The West of England and Business South regions will also be exhibiting at MIPIM 2023.

MIPIM will be held between 14-17 March in Cannes at the Palais des Festivals. The 2022 conference saw more than 20,000 professionals, both in the public and private sector, descend on the French seaside town.

Manchester was absent from the 2022 event, but MIPIM has since confirmed that both Manchester and Liverpool will be exhibiting next year.

The exhibition confirmation follows Manchester City Council chief executive Joanne Roney’s firm statement on the matter at Place North West’s MIPIM sales launch on Thursday.

“I am absolutely clear, we are coming to MIPIM next year,” Roney said.

Roney added later: “MIPIM is important to the city. MIPIM is important to the businesses of the city.”

She said the council would be using MIPIM as a stage to encourage investors to come to Greater Manchester and to showcase both site-ready projects and future schemes.

Rohan Marwaha, UK managing director for MIPIM organiser RX, said the coming show would be significant for the country.

“2023 will mark another important year for UK cities as they seek to attract vital capital inflows to support major housebuilding, infrastructure and regeneration projects,” Marwaha said.

“MIPIM is tracking very positively for 2023 and will undoubtedly build on the success of 2022 edition which brought together over 20,000 people. There has arguably never been a more important time to promote the UK as a destination for international investment and MIPIM is an unparalleled platform to achieve that.”

MIPIM 2023 is focused on three topics: user experience, ESG and decarbonisation, and business efficiency.

The conference will feature six new stages. The Leaders’ Perspective Stage is focused on keynote speeches from those making waves in industry. The Asset Class Stage looks into individual sectors to see where the market is going. The Infrastructure Stage looks at the impact of water, energy, data centres, transport and more have on property development.

The Geo Focus Stage examines specific local markets, while the ESG Solution Stage is exactly what its name implies. The Make It Happen Stage will feature conversations about use cases and collaboration.

Liverpool please go out and sell yourself using sensible , business -like people, if ever a city was underachieving it`s us, the waterfront is crying out for development, and too many vacant plots exist in other parts of town.
