MIPIM plans encouraged

Businesses are being encouraged to consider joining the region’s visit to Europe’s biggest property convention next year.

MIPIM takes place in March in Cannes, south of France, when thousands of developers, investors and others involved in the property sector converge to either consider potential investment opportunities or flag up schemes that require some support.

Businesses from West & North Yorkshire and the wider Leeds City Region will be visiting MIPIM during 15-18 March, led by the Local Enterprise Partnership Chair, Roger Marsh.  It is expected that several Chamber of Commerce members will be among the delegation.

Details of the event, including sponsorship opportunities and contact information, can be found here.

Mike Cartwright of West & North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce said: “We’re encouraging businesses to think about the opportunities that MIPIM presents for developments in our area.  The property sector suffered greatly during the recession but, while there is still lots of caution due to various factors affecting trade, there are many opportunities coming through and there is money out there to invest; so we think people should take a look at the prospectus and give it some thought.”
