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.

Paul Maliphant Development Director Wales, Mott MacDonald Ltd

“It was fantastic to see Cardiff back at MIPIM in 2019, demonstrating the wealth of opportunities on offer within this great city. Wates Residential has a strong partnership with Cardiff Council through our Cardiff Living partnership to deliver over 1,500 much-needed affordable new homes for local people across all tenures. Having joined Cardiff at MIPIM last year, it really felt like the city was open for business.”

Paul Nicholls Managing Director for Wates Residential

Being part of the Cardiff team at MIPIM was a privilege and a hugely beneficial experience for Rio. 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.”

Andrew Baker Partner, Rio Architects 

“MIPIM provides a special opportunity to show our support for our capital region and showcase Cardiff as an iconic capital city on an international stage. The event is a key facilitator for collaboration and a unique arena in which to network with industry colleagues from Wales, the rest of the UK and Europe.”

Jon James Partner, ISG
