It's MIPIM time!
MIPIM 2018, Europe's premier annual real estate event is nearly upon us. Good networking opportunities await for Alliott Group members who will be in attendance.
So, it’s MIPIM time again. For the uninitiated among you, the MIPIM property conference is held in Cannes, France, and brings together the most influential people and companies from all international property sectors, offering access to many development projects and sources of capital worldwide.
MIPIM is regarded as “the” event in the European real estate calendar and has become Europe’s showcase for major cities, property developments, investment opportunities and networking. This year’s event runs from 13-16 March.
Keiron Kent, BD Director at Northern Irish law member John McKee Solicitors reports that one of the partners, Gerard Small attended MIPIM last year for the first time. This is an excerpt of some of his feedback about his time at the 2017 MIPIM Conference posted on Linkedin:
"Really successful and enjoyable week at MIPIM 2017 in beautiful Cannes meeting clients, colleagues and new contacts. Lots of new friendships made and old ones renewed. Fantastic effort from all of us there to promote Northern Ireland especially those @BelfastMIPIM #BelfastForward. Great to be able to offer all-Ireland and international legal solutions to clients through our alliance with top 10 RoI firm @RonanDalyJermyn and membership of worldwide alliance Alliott Group @Alliott_Group1….”
Gerard and Kieron successfully gathered a cohort of eight Alliott Group members who were attending the event, with meetings being beneficial to everyone as they strengthened the Alliott Group presence at MIPIM and facilitated many “serendipitous” networking opportunities – mostly at a bar, although Gerard will never admit it!
On a serious note, we believe it is important to ensure that we inform Alliott Group members of any events we are attending to ensure that we can help, assist and introduce them to our contacts and meetings to develop the group.
MIPIM is the first example of that approach this year. Stay tuned fellow Alliott Group members.
