Mipim 2020 now cancelled, but with a substitute



There has been another change in the arrangements for this year’s Mipim. Having seen the original fair in March postponed until early June, organisers Reed Midem have had to accept that even this date is likely to be too early for the coronavirus pandemic to have made travel and gatherings safe again, and have issued the following announcement to Mipim press delegates:‘Mipim, scheduled to take place June 2-5 in Cannes, is transforming into a two-day, Paris-based gathering of real estate and technology leaders in September and a new online experience, Mipim Connect, available year-round. The next edition of Mipim in Cannes will take place March 16-19, 2021.

Mipim will organize a gathering of international real estate leaders who wish to conduct business, benefit from timely content and network together to help speed the recovery of the property industry. The programme of conferences, networking opportunities and awards will take place in September, in conjunction with other activities in Paris, focused on innovation in real estate.

Mipim Connect will launch in April and be free for delegates who have registered for Mipim 2020. The new online service will feature a range of thought leadership content, networking and business tools, and will be available to real estate professionals worldwide on a year-round basis.’ Filippo Rean, Real Estate Division Director at Reed Mipim, explains: “"The situation surrounding COVID-19 is changing daily and government measures are becoming increasingly restrictive. It is clear that holding a large Mipim trade show in Cannes in June is not feasible given the rapid spread, devastating impact and uncertain evolution of the virus. As it is not possible to organize a traditional Mipim by the end of this year, we are planning a different form of gathering for clients in the autumn in Paris, plus a digital experience, Mipim Connect. These aim to help the industry start to recover and are the precursors of Mipim in Cannes in March 2021”.
