NEW HEAD OF MIPIM AND MAPIC IN THE UK APPOINTED

Rohan Marwaha to lead Reed MIDEM portfolio in London

Paris, 23 July 2019 – Reed MIDEM, organiser of the internationally-renowned MIPIM and MAPIC real estate events, has appointed Rohan Marwaha as Regional Director for the UK.

Rohan joins Reed MIDEM following with a highly successful career and over 20 years experience in the events, information and publishing sectors. Most notably he created and developed a new multi-million dollar exhibitions business for Informa plc (a FTSE 100 company), which was one of the most profitable and fastest growing in their group for several years.

With a background in marketing, sales and project management, Rohan has launched over 30 exhibitions and 60 conferences in the US, Europe, Middle East, Asia and Africa.

In addition to heading up the London office for all Reed MIDEM property sector shows, Rohan will lead on the transformed MIPIM UK Summit, which will for the first time this year take place at Old Billingsgate in the City of London on 14-15 October 2019.

Ronan Vaspart, MIPIM  Director, said: “Rohan has a formidable track record of launching and delivering successful conferences and events across the world. As one of the most important territories for the Reed MIDEM business and with the MIPIM UK Summit entering into a new era, having someone of Rohan’s experience to lead this change is a signal of intent to the industry in the UK and internationally.”

Rohan Marwaha, UK Regional Director for Reed MIDEM, commented: “The MIPIM and MAPIC brands in the real estate sector are unrivalled and I’m really looking forward to the opportunity of making the new MIPIM UK Summit the go-to event for meeting and hearing from the most influential players from across the property, investment and political spheres.”

To help the UK keep pace in these uncertain times, the UK version of MIPIM has been relaunched with a new name and new venue. MIPIM UK Summit will take place at Old Billingsgate, City of London, and will look closely at the changing dynamics of property and the importance of cities and regions across the UK. The high-level conference will feature international voices and address the critical issues impacting on the future of UK real estate.
