The property industry’s annual Mipim jamboree in the South of France has been pushed back by a further three months.
Reed Midem said today that the first face-to-face event, ‘Mipim September Edition’, will take place in Cannes between 7-8 September 2021, having originally been scheduled for June.
While Covid-19 restrictions are ongoing, Mipim said it was continuing to keep the property community engaged and informed through its series of online events, which includes the upcoming Leaders’ Perspectives Summit next week.
Mipim’s September Edition is aiming to bring the international real estate and investor community back to in-person interaction following months of restrictions. The two-day connecting and conference event will give Mipim’s global clients the first opportunity this year to reconnect in person through high-level talks, an exhibition area and networking to create valuable new business opportunities.
Mipim director Ronan Vaspart said: “The global pandemic has meant that we have had to adapt, with the safety of our clients, partners and staff always our top priority. It is not possible to hold Mipim in Cannes during June as we had originally hoped to do.
“It is vital that the real estate community continues to have a global platform and we will continue to give it a voice through our digital events. We look forward to welcoming leaders from the property sector to the South of France in September for our special MipimSeptember Edition, to fast-track our built environment’s recovery after restrictions have eased.
“In 2022, we will hold Mipim in March, bringing together real estate leaders in Cannes at an event that will herald a return to near-normal business.”
Mipim September Edition will be a hybrid event as business meetings, exhibition space, conferences, awards and networking opportunities will be enhanced online via the Mipim digital platform.
