At MIPIM UK Summit, learn about national industry trends and connect with peers through conferences, keynotes and networking events.
The MIPIM UK Summit will focus on global, economic, societal and technological issues impacting the real estate industry. The event will explore the ever expanding needs and interests of the built environment, which plays an ever more critical part in the success of our cities, places and people.
New technology and changing behaviours are transforming the nature of real estate as an investment, and as a product or service we use as consumers. High energy prices, climate change and government regulation are already pushing sustainability up the real estate agenda. There is a need for investors and owners to improve asset performance and manage a broader range of risks.
With a new structure, content, speakers and venue, the MIPIM UK Summit agenda gives a unique opportunity to showcase the future of the built environment in the UK that will enable economic growth, sustainable performance and community cohesion.

Why are you looking forward to attending the re-energized MIPIM UK Summit this year?
"The UK market is sitting at a very interesting point right now, both in terms of the real estate cycle but also, of course, because of the economic and political backdrop. Events such as MIPIM UK enable real estate professionals, and those involved in the sector more widely, to debate and discuss the opportunities, issues and challenges we face, and to share insight and opinion which is particularly valuable in less certain times like these and helps inform our decision making. The newly formatted conference, in a more convenient location will no doubt provide an even more dynamic environment for this to happen."
"As the leader of the Grimsey Review team, I am clear that this is the moment to take a long hard look at the future of our UK town centres. The potential for new investment to make a killing through innovative new uses in the centre of towns is massive. So I am hugely looking forward to attending the re-energized MIPIM UK Summit this year and speaking to potential investors. The Grimsey Review will help localities find new uses for redundant retail property assets, helpfully located next to existing amenities. Clever investors would do well to look at these emerging opportunities. As ever, the early adopters will get the competitive advantage."
"We have just done a £90 million deal with Sekisui House and Homes England, investing in the UK modular market through our Urban Splash House business. Collectively, we are looking forward to meeting and partnering with landowners and local authorities to deliver thousands of new, modern homes."
"I’m hoping mainly that MIPIM 2019 will be a positive, post-Brexit event with delegates able to explore an array of emerging opportunities and synergies."
"I’m looking forward to attending MIPIM UK this year to discuss with industry professionals how major regeneration projects, like Old Oak and Park Royal, can best be delivered to create homes, jobs and opportunities that connect people with place."
"UK real estate is a fantastic sector to work in and the MIPIM UK Summit is a great opportunity to showcase and celebrate everything that is good about UK real estate, and to debate the challenges and opportunities facing the sector."
