Manchester's property folk are to get their own version of a Mipim Thursday party on home soil with an informal gathering at the Mark Addy next week on 8 March.
Early sponsors of the get-together for property professionals – and anyone with money to put behind the bar – are developers Capital & Centric, recruitment consultancy the MRJ Group, mechanical and electrical advisors SI Sealy, and Place North West, who have all pledged money behind the bar.
The event coincides with the last night of the annual property convention in Cannes, when Manchester delegates have enjoyed the Hang the DJ party organised by Ear to the Ground for the past few years.
Not Mipim Mcr will begin at 6pm on Thursday 8 March. Event organiser Justine McGuinn of Just PR & Marketing requests that people planning on attending please tweet @JustPRM or email Justine@justprm.co.uk to help keep an eye on numbers.
Twitter users can follow and promote the night with the hashtag #NotMIPIMMcr
If you would like to join in by sponsoring the bar on the night, again please contact Justine with your company and the amount you'd like to contribute. You will be adequately tweeted and promoted on Place.
An established 'not Mipim' knees-up takes place on Friday of Mipim week in Liverpool, the popular Cannes Do lunch which has again sold out in advance. The lunch will take place on Friday 9 March at 12 Princes Parade in Princes Dock attended by 450 people, with an after-dinner comedian.
