At MIPIM UK Summit, learn about national industry trends and connect with peers through conferences, keynotes and networking events.

Emerging from uncertainty to prosperity ?

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. 

Join us at the MIPIM UK Summit 2019 to understand the future opportunities for UK real estate.

In their words...

Why are you looking forward to attending the re-energized MIPIM UK Summit this year?

"Events such as MIPIM UK enable real estate professionals 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."

Joanne McNamara

Vice President Investments and Interim European Finance Director, Oxford Properties Group

“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."

Our mission at ULI is to provide leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide.

Lisette van Doorn
