MIPIM Launch Cardiff Castle

Over 100 businesses from across Cardiff and the capital region came together for Cardiff’s MIPIM 2020 partnership launch.

Held in the iconic Cardiff Castle, delegates from the private and public sector were given the information on the opportunities available to attend the annual property conference as part of the region’s delegation.

The launch covered plans and aspirations for MIPIM 2020 and the sponsorship packages available.

Cllr Huw Thomas, Leader, Cardiff Council addressed the audience

“MIPIM is the world’s leading property event in Cannes and it is a unique opportunity to develop new trade and investment propositions with investors from across the world.

Our offer is amongst the best in the UK and MIPIM is the number one event to showcase the city and if we’re not there we’re not competing.

It’s not local government attending with businesses, it is one delegation representing Cardiff and the city-region together. It’s our businesses, their skills expertise and knowledge that sell us and we look forward to working with everybody is shaping our offering which we will present at MIPIM in 2020”.

A record delegation of businesses attended in 2019 and was Cardiff’s most successful MIPIM to date and now for MIPIM 2020, Cardiff will be jointly partnered by the Cardiff Capital Region and as a collective we will be looking to refine its approach and ensure that next year’s delegation is able to build on this success.
