Mipim 2021 postponed to June 7 – 10

Next year’s Mipim will not take place in March.

Client feedback concerning the unpredictability of travel restrictions and quarantine rules in connection with the Covid-19 pandemic has encouraged the organizers at Reed Midem to bring the international real estate community together later in the year.

Reed Midem’s management understands that attending Mipim requires a lot of forward planning for international attendees. In a world where it is difficult to assess where we will be heading in regards to the coronavirus in the days, weeks or even months to come, the organizers are doing their best to anticipate developments and provide solutions that meet their clients’ needs and concerns. The goal is to provide an event that supports businesses and allows the real estate sector to start preparing for what is being called the “new normal.” Above all, there will be no compromise on health and safety.
