Last year, Mipim was one of the first major events not to go ahead as planned due to Covid-19. There is still hope that it will take place this year. However, there has now been a further postponement from June 7 to 10 to September 7 and 8.
The edition is designed to bring the international real estate and investor community back to in-person interaction following many months of restrictions. This special two-day connecting and conference event will give Mipim’s global clients the first opportunity this year to reconnect in-person through high-level talks, an exhibition area and networking to create valuable new business opportunities.
Hopefully at the traditional dates in 2022
Mipim Director Ronan Vaspart said: “The global pandemic has meant that we have had to adapt, with the safety of our clients, partners and staff always our top priority. It is not possible to hold Mipim in Cannes during June as we had originally hoped to do. It is vital that the real estate community continues to have a global platform and we will continue to give it a voice through our digital events. We look forward to welcoming leaders from the property sector to the South of France in September for our special September Edition, to fast-track our built environment’s recovery after restrictions have eased.” In 2022, we will hold MIPIM in March, bringing together real estate leaders in Cannes at an event that will herald a return to near normal business.” Mipim on September 7 and 8, 2021 will be a hybrid event as business meetings, exhibition space, conferences, awards and networking opportunities will be enhanced online via a digital platform.
In 2022, Mipim intends to return to its traditional March dates in Cannes, taking place between March 15 to 18.
