LEP plans for MIPIM 2014

Published 29th October 2013 at 10:56am

March next year may still seem like a long way off, but our Property & Construction Sector Group knows that there are now less than five months to go to MIPIM 2014.

Our Property & Construction Sector Group, Chaired by Nabarro’s Martin McKervey, helped to make the strong economic case for sending a Sheffield City Region delegation to the event in France in 2014.

MIPIM is the leading real estate event for property professionals, attracting over 20,000 delegates from around the world – and the Sector Group made it clear to the LEP that Sheffield City Region simply cannot afford not to go.

The LEP has responded to calls from the private sector, and has committed an initial fund to kick-start the City Region’s 2014 MIPIM campaign. As part of this, our SCR Invest team is working with communications company Counter Context to coordinate plans.

Counter Context will be working with companies from across the City Region to let them know how they can be involved and how they can capitalise on this opportunity.

Harworth Estates has been the first business to sign up as a partner, and they’ve been clear about the importance of MIPIM to communicating property opportunities in the Sheffield City Region to investors.


The LEP recognises that to achieve economic growth and create jobs, Sheffield City Region has to be able to compete both nationally and internationally for investment.

2014 will be a great year for the Sheffield City Region. The eyes of the world will be on us when the Tour de France rolls into the City Region in the summer. MIPIM provides the ideal opportunity to capitalise on that spotlight whilst showcasing our world-beating assets to an international audience.

I hope you will join us and contact the SCR MIPIM team to find out how you can get involved.
