Nicolas Kozubek, MIPIM Director, said:
“We’re looking forward to welcoming the world’s investment community to MIPIM 2023, who will comprise around a quarter of all delegates. With an end to low interest rates and continuing macroeconomic and geopolitical uncertainty, this promises to be a crucial year for cities and regions looking to secure vital capital investment to support building and regeneration projects.
From the MIPIM Co-Liv Summit to our new Road to Zero area, we’re expecting a strong interest in new asset classes and discussions around how to invest in sustainable places, including the central role of real estate’s core assets for achieving global net zero targets.”
This year, MIPIM is launching a new Road to Zero area with the aim to accelerate the transformation of the built environment towards a more sustainable model. The new 400 sqm zone will combine exhibition, networking and conference space with a focus on practical methods to decarbonise the real estate industry.
A new international Summit will be also launched in response to the growth in alternative ways of living within the residential asset class. The MIPIM Co-Liv Summit, taking place on Monday 13th March, will be a yearly event to bring together the sector’s leading players.
MIPIM takes place on 14-17 March in Cannes, France. The 2023 edition expects to attract 23,000 delegates from over 90 countries, which is 15% more compared to last year.
