The Liverpool City Region delegation has revealed its full schedule for international property conference MIPIM 2018, which takes place next month.
The delegation will be the largest yet from Liverpool, with 39 partners. It will be headed by Liverpool City Region Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram and acting chief executive Frank Rogers.
Adopting the theme of global connections, the Liverpool stand will play host to three events where Liverpool City Region Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram will host conversations with high-profile guests.
The first of these will be with Peter Moore, Liverpool FC’s chief executive, a conversation which is expected to attract a large audience to the Liverpool stand. This will be followed by a discussion with Andy Street, Metro Mayor of the West Midlands Combined Authority, and then another with RIBA President Ben Derbyshire.
Liverpool’s waterfront is a recurring theme of the programme, with a number of European cities participating in sessions looking at how places can develop and utilise their waterfront assets and their investment potential.
There will also be updates on a variety of developments around the city region, including Paddington Village, the wider Knowledge Quarter and Liverpool and Wirral Waters.
Sean Beech of Deloitte, who again chairs Liverpool’s MIPIM delegation, said: “We’re in final countdown mode for MIPIM, and I’m looking forward to taking our largest Liverpool delegation to Cannes.
“We go in confidence, with our City Region leadership and an extended events programme. On a personal level, I’m thrilled that we have so many events linked in with other cities and UK Government.
“MIPIM is an extremely valuable event for the city region’s businesses, and this is the strongest and most varied delegation we’ve ever had. The fact that each year we are joined by more representatives from the private sector shows its value”
Rotheram added: “MIPIM is one of the most important events for us to be at, attracting investment and building relationships on a global scale. Each year we are joined by more representatives from the private sector, and I think the programme of events we have in 2018 will ensure that the Liverpool stand is again extremely popular.
