MIPIM 2020: the largest gathering of international real-estate investors

Paris, 19 February 2020 – More than 6,380 international investors and representatives of financial institutions will be attending MIPIM, creating a unique event for promoting property projects to this much sought-after community.
 
MIPIM is home to 40 of the world’s top 100 real-estate investment funds, representing over €650 billion in assets under management. And 80 of the world’s 100 largest investment fund managers, with €2.6 trillion in assets under management, will also be present at MIPIM (source: IPE Research).
 
Organised by Reed MIDEM, a subsidiary of Reed Exhibitions, MIPIM, the world’s leading real-estate market event, will be held in Cannes from 10 to 13 March 2020.
 
France, a market of opportunities for investors
According to the PwC Emerging Trends in Real Estate® Europe 2020 study, investors will be focusing their efforts on cities that offer liquidity and connectivity while paying close attention to political instability. In terms of real-estate investments, the French capital is the clear favourite, closely followed by Berlin, Frankfurt, London, Madrid and Amsterdam.
 
In this context, MIPIM has co-produced with Business Immo Europe a white paper on France’s high-level attractiveness for international investors. It highlights the reasons behind this enthusiasm for France, focussing on Paris and four other French metropolitan centres – Lyon, Lille, Aix/Marseille and Toulouse.
 
Nordic Investment Summit
The Nordic region is an attractive geography for international investors and for the first time at MIPIM, the Nordic Investment Summit will be held on the 11th of March. Organised in partnership with NREP, the summit will bring together the Nordic investment community, local and public authorities and international investors interested in the Nordic markets. This closed-door summit will be an opportunity to learn more about the specific features of this market, identify investment opportunities, and create new synergies. Confirmed speakers include Jens Kramer Mikkelsen, Director of Urban Development at NREP and former Mayor of Copenhagen (Denmark), Minna Arve, Mayor of Turku (Finland), Anna Jerlmyr König, Mayor of Stockholm (Sweden) and Jenny Lindholm, Head of Nordics, Allianz Real Estate.
 
The RE-Invest & RE-Allocate Summits
As every year, the RE-Invest Summit will bring together 60 major international institutional investors behind closed doors on the 10th of March. This year the discussions will focus on risk management according to environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors.
 
Building on the success of its first edition, the RE-Allocate Summit will take place on the 11th of March.
