MIPIM 2017

In March we attended MIPIM 2017 in Cannes to discuss how we are operating as an active delivery partner in developments across the district with Transport for London and Westminster City Council.

We kicked off the week in style, co-hosting the Mishcon de Reya pre-MIPIM Real Estate Party with Bee London and support from the Department for International Trade. Watch highlights from the night in this short film.

Over the course of the week we partnered with City & Westminster Property Associations (CPA) (WPA), West End Partnership (WEP) and The Northbank BID to promote the continual efforts made to improve business conditions and retail opportunities for occupiers in the West End.

With over 23,000 delegates from 90 different countries we helped place the West End front and centre on a world stage, highlighting the opening of the Elizabeth Line next year and the numerous public realm initiatives underway across the district to create ‘a new West End’. Read more about about our activity at MIPIM in our CEO blog.
