All you need to know about MIPIM

This year's edition of MIPIM (Marché International des Professionels de l'Immobilier) is just one month away: with just a few more weeks to go before the tens of thousands of attendees descend onto the Cannes Croisette, en route to Palais des Festivals, we here at Riviera Luxury Rentals thought it would be a great time to refresh everyone about what MIPIM is, why people come, and why it is one of the biggest events held here in the south of France.


'MIPIM is a 4 day real estate exhibition, conference and networking event gathering 24,000 international property professionals'. This year's event kicks off on the 13th of March, following through to the 16th. During this period, some of the worlds' biggest players in the property market will come to the Marché, in order to meet new potential clients and partners, discuss ongoing projects, formulate new business deals, and debate industry issues.

As the building and development of real estate face increasingly challenging obstacles in the modern day market, this event is crucial for 5,000 investors and financial institutions, and 3,800 CEOs & C-Level professionals (and their delegates!) to seek new opportunities in emerging markets. The increasing internationalization of the MIPIM congress, with now over 100 countries being represented at the event, proves there is potential in every corner of the world.


Moreover, modern developments in real estate have become dependent on the continual advancements in technology: with the market demanding sustainability from new projects, innovation is at the forefront of the developer and architects' minds. This shift in industry culture is highlighted as innovation, technology and sustainability will be focal talking points during the event's 100+ conferences, within which more than 350 keynotes and speakers will share their ideas, and inspire the hundreds in audience.

As the MIPIM congress draws to a close, the MIPIM Awards are presented to the best of the years' real estate projects in a glittering awards ceremony attended by the biggest names in the industry: award winners are chosen from a jury of industry experts, with the awards spread over several different categories such as 'Green Building & City Solutions', 'Best Office & Business Development' and 'Best Shopping Centre'. Good luck to all of the finalists!
