Mipim will not take place from June 2 to 5, 2020

MIPIM 2020, scheduled to take place June 2-5 in Cannes, is transforming into a two-day, Paris-based gathering of real estate and technology leaders in September and a new online experience, MIPIM Connect, available year-round.

The next edition of MIPIM in Cannes will take place March 16-19, 2021. The situation surrounding COVID-19 is changing daily and government measures are becoming increasingly restrictive. It is clear that holding a large MIPIM tradeshow in Cannes in June is not feasible given the rapid spread, devastating impact and uncertain evolution of the virus. As it is not possible to organize a traditional MIPIM by the end of this year, Reed Midem is planning a different form of gathering for clients in the autumn in Paris, plus a digital experience, MIPIM Connect.

These aim to help the industry start to recover and are the precursors of MIPIM in Cannes in March 2021. MIPIM will organize a gathering of international real estate leaders who wish to conduct business, benefit from timely content and network together to help speed the recovery of the property industry. The programme of conferences, networking opportunities and awards will take place in September, in conjunction with other activities in Paris, focused on innovation in real estate. 

MIPIM Connect will launch in April and be free for delegates who have registered for MIPIM 2020. The new online service will feature a range of thought leadership content, networking and business tools, and will be available to real estate professionals worldwide on a year-round basis.  The MIPIM team will communicate more details about the September gathering in Paris and MIPIM Connect in the coming weeks.
