London, 26 September, 2017 – Some 350 investors and representatives of financial institutions will attend MIPIM UK, which will be held from 18-19 October at Olympia, London.
Major investors and financial institutions from the UK as well as China, Canada, France, Hong Kong, and South Africa, among others, will attend the real estate event, drawn by the opportunity to connect with senior figures from across the British real estate industry as well as the public sector.
This year MIPIM UK will host a series of open door investor summits, focused on topics including the state of the global investment market, the emergence from an ultra-low interest rate environment and the risk of rising inflation, the London office market, as well as sessions on the state of the UK market, the residential, retail and logistics sectors and the latest developments in UK policy and the opportunities that exist in the regions.
A breakfast for investors will be hosted by the Department for International Trade, including a keynote speech from a senior government minister, while an investors’ lunch will be hosted by a leading economic commentator.
Other speakers include Charles Hecker, of Control Risks, who will provide an assessment of the current risks across the global investment markets.
Investors and financial institutions that have signed up to date include Ivanhoe Cambridge, BNP Paribas, Zurich Insurance Company, Aviva Investors, Axa Real Assets, Barclays Bank, China Construction Bank, Fosun Group, Legal & General, Oxford Properties, Nan Fung, Orion Capital Managers, Greystar, APG Asset Management, PGGM, Bouwfonds Investment Management and Frogmore.
Ronan Vaspart, Director of the MIPIM events said: “The sheer quality and quantity of international investors that are signing up to attend MIPIM UK so far this year underlines the importance of the event in the UK real estate calendar. This year the investors’ summit will be open to all delegates so everyone can gain insight into the latest factors driving the investment market and make connections with senior investors from around the globe. It is an opportunity not to be missed.”
Organised by Reed MIDEM, a subsidiary of Reed Exhibitions, MIPIM UK targets leading real estate decision-makers operating at a national, regional and local level in cities throughout England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
This year the conference will explore the UK’s shifting business landscape as its central theme, ‘UK Real Estate: The Next Chapter,’ with the content of the programme exploring the profound and far-reaching impact Brexit and other changes, such as evolution of tech and ecommerce and new methods of construction, will have on the industry.
Over 40 conference sessions will take place over the two days, covering a diverse range of topics, including infrastructure, urban regeneration, development lending, taxation and the future role of the property agent, solutions to the UK’s housing crisis, the role of housing associations, tax and stamp duty, and the future of the private rented sector (PRS).
MIPIM UK will also host an Innovation Forum and a Mayor’s think tank and will feature thought-leaders and speakers from across the property industry, as well as politics and economics.
