CANNES, 10-13 MARCH, 2020

Cardiff will be returning to MIPIM in 2020
to showcase Cardiff and the Cardiff Capital Region.

Expanding financial and business services, creative industries, technology, entertainment and hospitality sectors offer prime property investment opportunities within the Cardiff Capital Region.

The Cardiff Capital Region is a thriving hub of activity, and is primed ready for £10 billion worth of investment opportunities.

The region has a long and proud history in the global economy. In the 19th century, coal from the valleys fuelled the industrial revolution. It powered ironworks, factories, trains and steamships all over the world.

Today, as the southern gateway to Wales, the region boasts a population of 1.6 million people and over 20,000 active enterprises, all anchored by one of the fastest growing cities in the UK, Cardiff.

Cardiff and the Cardiff Capital Region will continue its drive to promote its ambitions for development in the region to the international real estate world at MIPIM 2020.

Led by Invest in Cardiff, the Cardiff Capital Region and partners in the fields of development, property consultancy and architecture, Cardiff will showcase a host of development, investment and occupier opportunities throughout the city.

As the world’s closest capital city to London, Cardiff and the region is uniquely placed to capitalise on its established strength in the financial and business services sectors and its growing creative and technology clusters.

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.

“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.”
