MIPIM, the world's leading property event, is a four-day real estate exhibition and conference, offering excellent networking opportunities. Bringing together the most influential players from all international property sectors - office, residential, retail, logistics and industrial - it provides unrivalled access to the greatest number of development projects and sources of capital worldwide. The 2016 event attracted over 23,000 real estate decision-makers, including 3,200 CEOs, chairmen and chairwomen. Representatives from 6,500 companies in 89 countries attended, among them 4,500 key investors, major developers, political leaders, local authorities and property professionals.
The 2017 event will be held in Cannes, France, during 14-17 March. LCCI President, Tony Pidgley CBE, Chairman of Berkeley Group Plc, will lead our MIPIM 2017 delegation. Colin Stanbridge, LCCI Chief Executive, and Mark Collins, Chairman UK Residential, CBRE and LCCI Property and Construction Group Chairman, will accompany him, ensuring significant industry focus on LCCI and our MIPIM 2017 sponsors.
With a prominent LCCI stand in the London Pavilion, our key aim is to raise our profile and that of our sponsors - and to provide an opportunity for our sponsors to connect with potential customers and partners.
To support our activities at this stand, we'll run events before, during and after MIPIM.
We'll also be involved in the New London Architecture (NLA) Discussion Forum in the London Pavilion. This will be the main arena for getting across our key messages relating to expectations that London's population will reach nine million by 2020 and ten million by 2030 (megacity status). There will be many challenges in meeting the needs of this future population - but also many opportunities we can seize to maximise London's full economic potential.
For 'London the megacity' to succeed in a post-Brexit era, we need to deal with four priority areas:
- London's chronic housing under-supply affects employees and employers
- We need to free up more land and give more builders the opportunity to build on it
- London businesses need access to a diverse, skilled workforce
- Improved training and the ability to recruit talented people from overseas will help
- London will need greater powers to accommodate forecast population growth
- It's important to retain more London-generated taxes and secure new skills
- London's ageing transport infrastructure faces overcrowding and congestion
- Targeted investment is essential to service a rapidly expanding population
