Andrew Stokes, chief executive of Marketing Manchester, the agency that leads on the city's presence at MIPIM, said: "With the support of our exceptionally strong partnership, we aim to convey how cities like Manchester will continue to be the focal point for growth and development, in both the physical and intellectual sense.

"Our main audience at MIPIM is the international property community. However, we recognise that the key themes we cover are relevant to individuals and businesses from a variety of sectors, which is why we hope the live stream will once again be useful to a much wider demographic."
