MIPIM, the International Market of Real Estate Professionals, once again proved its significance as a global urban festival, bringing together investors, politicians, and industry leaders from over 90 countries in Cannes, France. Amidst geopolitical, environmental, and socio-economic uncertainty, the event showcased a multitude of opportunities and solutions for the challenges facing the built environment.

Our team’s experience at MIPIM was nothing short of enlightening. Engaging with professionals from diverse backgrounds and expertise levels, ranging from experienced veterans to emerging talents, provided us with a holistic view of the real estate landscape.

The event’s focus on sustainability was particularly noteworthy, with discussions centred on urgent climate action and the built environment’s pivotal role in the green transition. Political leaders emphasised the importance of collective efforts in tackling climate change and fostering sustainable development, setting the tone for proactive initiatives within the real estate industry.

As we reflect on our time at MIPIM, we are invigorated by the wealth of insights gained and the connections forged. The event served as a catalyst for inspiration and collaboration, fuelling our enthusiasm for future endeavours in the dynamic realm of real estate.
