5 things to look out for at MIPIM 2018

March 12, 2018

It’s that time of year again, where property professionals from all over descend on Cannes for the industry’s largest conference and exhibition. Whether this is your first time at MIPIM or you are a seasoned attendee, it’s well worth checking out these hidden gems.

Get off to a running start

If you fancy doing MIPIM the healthy way, kick off your time in Cannes with a social run along the coast, starting from the Radisson Blue 1835 Hotel & Thalaaaonter. The Welcome Run is on Monday from 6pm-7pm, and early birds can enjoy two 7am runs planned for Tuesday and Friday. They last for 30 minutes and 1 hour on an out and back route, so if you’re on a tight schedule (or unfit), you can leave the run at any point.

“The Cronx” Beer on the Beach returns

Good news! White Label Creative is set to bring back it’s hugely popular craft beer event for a second year. Following the Croydon Panel Discussion taking place on Wednesday, head over to the London Stand Beach Terrace between 4pm-5pm to enjoy a selection of craft beers by premium Croydon brewery, The Cronx.

Morning hula hooping

If running really isn’t your thing, why not try something a little different? Join Amanda Illing, CEO from Hardwicke and Jacqueline Rook, CEO from Brecher for a bit of morning hula hooping on the beach. All abilities are invited, and there will be a few spare hula hoops available to borrow (of course, experienced hula hoopers can bring their own hoops along).

Real estate and technology in the fast lane

The Belfast at MIPIM stand will be hosting its wrap up reception with special guest and ex Ferrari Formula One driver, Eddie Irvine. There will be a Q&A session touching on his racing career, and his journey into the real estate and tech industry. Register your interest on Eventbrite for the reception taking place on Thursday at 4pm.

Calling all gin and cheese lovers!

The Cheshire and Warrington Stand will be delivering the ultimate tipple and nibble combination at this business mixer on Thursday at 3pm. Learn about investment opportunities from business representatives in Cheshire over a G&T.
