Creating a 21st Century Making City Region, building on the core strengths of a city region that designs, develops and distributes.

This year, Sheffield City Region took its biggest ever delegation of private and public sector representatives to MIPIM, the annual real estate event that takes place in Cannes, France.

MIPIM is where business deals get done, and where city region leaders and businesses can meet thousands of potential investors in the space of just a few days.

Next year’s event runs from Tuesday 13 March to Friday 16 March, and is set to welcome more than 24,000 participants from 100 countries to the Riviera.

Sir Nigel Knowles, chairman of the Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), said: “Sheffield City Region is a partnership that has already delivered. We have proved that we get things done. And now we’re asking organisations from the public and private sectors if they want to join us in what we hope will be our largest ever delegation to MIPIM.

“By working together locally on international promotion, on skills, business support and major infrastructure planning, we can secure more investment from huge international names, such as Boeing and McLaren. At MIPIM, we’ll come together to promote the region and hopefully secure investment in some landmark projects.

“Sheffield City Region has a unique role to help create new businesses, support the growth of existing ones, and inspire and attract foreign ones to come to the region.

“In doing so, these companies will create new jobs, which will improve regional prosperity. This can then improve the welfare of residents, enhance vibrant communities and enable businesses to expand, grow and recruit more staff. Join us at MIPIM to shout about Sheffield City Region to the world.”

Sheffield City Region’s delegation will include representatives from the public and private sectors and will focus on promoting residential, commercial, retail and leisure investment opportunities.

Businesses from across the region are encouraged to get involved and get in touch with us to find out more.

A range of packages are available for businesses wanting to be a part of the MIPIM delegation. Contact Nici Pickering on 0750 0027732 or email nici.pickering@sheffieldcityregion.org.uk to discuss further.
