MIPIM 2022: Former French President Hollande to deliver keynote

With travel restrictions lifted in France, it’s all systems go for the world’s leading property conference in Cannes.

“We are full steam ahead in our planning for what is shaping into a crucial event for real estate in 2022,” said Ronan Vaspart, director of MIPIM.

“It is fantastic to see such a strong desire from the industry to come together and the numbers we are seeing signing up for the event are highly encouraging.”

This year’s theme is “driving urban change”.

Former French President François Hollande will deliver the keynote address at the conference, using the time to focus on both the challenges and opportunities that the property industry faces.

Hollande was the French President from 2012-2017. During his speech, Hollande will also discuss how the industry can tackle climate change, which is fitting considering he presided over the Paris Climate Agreement at COP21 in 2015.

“I hope this message gives those already signed up, as well as those still considering their options, the confidence to plan for arriving in Cannes in March,” Vaspart said.

“We look forward to welcoming everyone to a safe and secure event that is set to continue MIPIM’s tradition of attracting the biggest names in our field, as demonstrated by what promises to be a significant intervention from President Hollande.”

MIPIM 2022 is set to have the same number of exhibitors as the conference had in 2019.

The UK Pavilion on La Croisette will be the hub for UK business during the conference, with the Department for International Trade, Homes England, and the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities joining forces to promote the country.

Liverpool and Lancashire have committed to exhibiting at the event as well. London, Newcastle, Cardiff, Dudley, West of England and Central South will also be taking stands.

Manchester and Cheshire & Warrington will not have stands this year, although Manchester has committed to sending a small delegation.

MIPIM 2022 will be held 15-18 March at Palais des Festivals in Cannes. Representatives from Allied London, Bruntwood, Morgan Sindall Construction, Progressive Living, Urban Splash, Castle Green, Mills & Reeve, Cushman & Wakefield, and Savills are among its attendees.

Also attending: Altus Group, Colliers, CBRE, Essensys, Knight Frank, JLL, Luma Marketing, NJL Consulting, and Reich Insurance.

JMW Solicitors will be bringing its largest team yet to the event, with 11 members of staff making their way to Cannes to represent the firm’s Manchester and London offices.

More companies are expected to announce their MIPIM plans in the coming weeks.
