Short physical Mipim in September alongside online knowledge and networking platform

Reed Midem has just announced that first face-to-face event, ‘Mipim September Edition’, will take place in Cannes on September 7th - 8th 2021. The event which had been scheduled for Cannes in June will therefore not take place. In 2022, Mipim will return to its traditional March dates in Cannes, taking place between March 15th and 18th.

Mipim September Edition, say the organisers is an event designed to bring the international real estate and investor community back to in-person interaction following many months of restrictions. This special two-day connecting and conference event will give the exhibition’s global clients the first opportunity this year to reconnect in-person through high-level talks, an exhibition area and networking to create new business opportunities. The Mipim September Edition will thus be a hybrid event as business meetings, exhibition space, conferences, awards and networking opportunities will be enhanced online via the digital platform.

Whilst restrictions are ongoing, the Mipim organizers point out that they are continuing to keep the property community engaged and informed through a series of online events, which includes the upcoming Leaders Perspectives Summit (March 16th -18th) that will bring together real estate, investors and political leaders.

Mipim Director Ronan Vaspart comments: “The global pandemic has meant that we have had to adapt, with the safety of our clients, partners and staff always our top priority. It is not possible to hold Mipim in Cannes during June as we had originally hoped to do. It is vital that the real estate community continues to have a global platform and we will continue to give it a voice through our digital events. We look forward to welcoming leaders from the property sector to the South of France in September for our special Mipim September Edition, to fast-track our built environment’s recovery after restrictions have eased. In 2022, we will hold Mipim in March, bringing together real estate leaders in Cannes at an event that will herald a return to near normal business.”
