London, 2 October 2019 – Investors are looking to this year’s MIPIM UK summit to identify the latest opportunities in real estate and get more clarity on the future of the UK market. The event takes place on 14-15th October at Old Billingsgate, London, and will be attended by major international and UK investors including international institutions like APG (Netherlands), CPPIB (Canada Pension Plan Investment Board), GIC (Singapore), KIC (Korea Investment Corporation), EPF (Malaysia), Quadreal (Canada) and UK investors like Wellcom Trust, BP Investment Management, and Tesco Pension Investment.
Rohan Marwaha, UK Regional Director for Reed MIDEM, commented: “With significant numbers of investors attending the MIPIM UK Summit from around the globe, the event is consolidating its position as the place where public and private sector meet. The number of foreign pension funds attending also shows confidence in the UK economy and long-term growth.”
Some of the key places and regions looking to attract investment at the Summit are Scotland, Liverpool, Teesside, Cardiff Capital Region and the West Midlands combined authority.
A delegation of investors from Paris will be joining the conference, with a specially curated itinerary taking in some of London’s most important regeneration areas, including Battersea and Stratford, alongside the conference programme. An investor delegation from China will be attending the Summit with representatives from the Department of International Trade.
Investors will join the UK real estate community to hear a keynote address for Housing Minister Esther McVey, who will open the conference to talk about the government’s plans to get more people on the housing ladder. Mrs McVey will be followed on the second day of the conference by Graham Stuart, Minister for Investment at the Department of International Trade. A specific investors programme, Re-Invest, will run throughout the day on the 15th of October, featuring a presentation from RCA entitled “The UK: Future Source or Destination for Capital?”, as well as roundtable discussions and a networking lunch.
In addition to the core Summit programme, an itinerary of external events has been designed for investors, including an exclusive breakfast at No 10 Downing Street on the 14th of October, in which presentations will be made by representatives from selected local authorities.
