“MIPIM is a great venue to showcase the manifest opportunities in Cardiff and Wales. It is a place for value adding conversations and connections with key players in the region and for gaining idea’s and inspiration from other locations. It supports discussions on fundamental national and global issues and how the construction sector can play its part in resolving them. Such discussions are often aligned with the aims and ambitions of the Wellbeing of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. This focus can only be of benefit to the people and communities of Wales.”

We want to help shape our City in the future, to forge relationships with the people who will invest in doing this and take part in the strategic discussions and decisions which will enable it all to happen. At MIPIM we were able to meet some of these people and kick-start the dialogue which will hopefully lead to successful future outcomes.”
