As most people in the planning, property and associated industries will know, MIPIM UK is the UK’s largest exhibition and conference for property professionals and took place last week (21-23 October). This blog provides an insight into the event which had 4,500 participants, 600 investors present, representation from 35 cities, and 60+ conferences and networking events, all in a 2,000 sq.m exhibition area, Olympia in London.
The second year of MIPIM UK kicked off with a keynote speech by Lord Maude of Horsham, Minister of State for Trade and Investment. He set the scene for the conference stating the UK has the fastest growing economy in the west and more people working than ever before. With £1 trillion FDI last year and £100 billion of the economy from construction, it is the time for investment in the UK property industry.
