MIPIM celebrates 30th birthday

A new concept; new venue; new content; MIPIM, the world’s largest property summit, has hit a huge milestone this year as the event celebrates its 30th birthday –with the theme engaging the future.

The four-day convention takes place in Cannes, France every year, and welcomes the most influential business leaders and industry experts, from around the world, as well as featuring speakers and panels that identify the most important issues impacting the property market of today and the future.

The prestigious convention took place last week and typically attracts around 23,000 visitors every year. Hundreds of real estate professionals whose passion is to understand the property market and exploit its potential, gather alongside brokers, investors, occupiers, landlords and business services. This is a fantastic event and is networking at its highest level.

The winner of this year’s Startup Competition is Spaceti, a PROPTECH products that helps to improve building environments and boosts productivity and profitability. Spaceti provides integrated solutions through its own sensors that interact with mobile devices to map how building environments can be improved. Founded in 2016, the company has already been established in New York, Stockholm and London. Six finalists made it to MIPIM after competing in heats all around the world, during MIPIM PROPTECH Europe, New York and Asia in 2018.

One of the most important issues that has recently shot up on the real estate agenda is healthcare, and the search for alternative investments with the rise of our aging population. Dr Pritpal S Tambar, CEO and Co-Founder of Bridging Health and Community spoke on a panel that addressed how to shift from a cure-orientated approach to healthcare.
