The event known last year as Mipim PropTech Europe has both a new name and a new (Coronavirus-obliged) date. Under its new name of Propel by Mipim, this gathering will now take place at the beginning of July as lat year, but has been rescheduled to September 14-15 due to concerns related to the coronavirus.

Nicolas Kozubek, Propel Director at Reed Midem, explains: “In the current rapidly evolving context, government measures in France and elsewhere are restricting travel, limiting public gatherings and requiring home confinement. This means it is not possible to organize an event such as Propel by Mipim in the beginning of summer, at a time when companies are understandably concerned about the safety of their people and there is uncertainty about when life will return to normal. In September, Propel by Mipim will be the flagship event within a wider programme of face-to-face Mipim gatherings in Paris bringing together the global real estate sector”.

Propel by Mipim is described by Reed Midem as an event that brings together real estate executives, tech experts, innovators, investors, public authorities and thought leaders to develop new business opportunities, discover projects, share ideas and celebrate creativity in the property and urban development sectors.
