The Manchester at MIPIM Partnership has championed the Greater Manchester region at MIPIM, the world’s largest international property market event, since 2000. In this time the Partnership has cemented itself as a significant contributor to the week’s programme of events and furthering the international profile of Greater Manchester city region.
The Manchester at MIPIM 2017 partnership was our largest to date, with over 100 organisations including Manchester City Council, Bruntwood, and Property Alliance Group. Manchester’s delegation has now grown to be one of the largest city-region presences at the global property conference. Find out who will be joining us in 2018.
The Manchester Pavilion is our spectacular 456m2 covered exhibition and event space at MIPIM. Situated along the famous La Croisette, the Manchester Pavilion places us alongside world-leading cities like London, Paris and Istanbul. The all-inclusive space operates from 8am-11pm daily and includes a dedicated seated event area, partner exhibition area and the Manchester Café.
The event programme at MIPIM is shaped by our partners, and focused on Manchester’s key sector strengths. Included within our partnership packages is the opportunity to submit event ideas, with successful proposals being chosen by Manchester City Council to form Manchester’s official MIPIM programme.
As with last year’s programme Manchester at MIPIM’s 2018 programme of events will be structured around 7 key themes.
Manchester, named by the Economist Intelligence Unit’s Global Liveability Survey as the best UK city to live in, offers exceptional quality of life with diverse and lively arts, entertainment, food and nightlife. Combine this with a comprehensive education infrastructure and an incredibly competitive cost of living, and it’s clear to see why investors are choosing to live in Manchester.
Greater Manchester’s culture is thriving. With a world-famous music scene, influential arts institutions, vibrant LGBT community, and some exceptional attractions, neighbourhoods all over the region are growing their reach and influence. Thanks to some world-famous events including Manchester International Festival, the region’s cultural acclaim is regularly reaching global audiences.
Manchester has long been home to scientific innovation. From splitting the atom to isolating graphene, the city is home to a number of world firsts thanks to the research from our globally competitive universities. Investment in infrastructure along the Oxford Road Corridor has established a flagship science cluster, home to two universities, the largest academic campus in the UK, the largest clinical academic campus in Europe, and Manchester Science Park.
Greater Manchester’s manufacturing sector is home to a number of huge global brands including Siemens, Kellogg’s, and Precision Technologies Group. As the home of graphene, Manchester is putting the infrastructure in place to be a world leader in graphene research, with the potential to revolutionise industries such as health care, aviation, and energy.
Greater Manchester has the UK’s largest cultural & creative cluster outside London, generating GVA of £3.0 billion each year. The region has a thriving community of businesses, from start-ups and home-grown companies, to global players like BBC, Google, IBM and Cisco. These companies sit side-by-side in creative and digital clusters, incubators and co-working spaces, where they converge, collaborate and drive innovation.
Manchester’s central neighbourhoods have undergone huge transformation over recent years, with the emergence of brand new spaces such as St. John’s, Spinningfields, New Bailey, and NOMA offering direct investment opportunities, and complementing established districts such as the Northern Quarter and Castlefield.
The Manchester tourism industry’s annual value to the city-region currently stands at £7.5bn, establishing itself as one of the primary sectors for economic growth. There have been increased additions to Manchester’s tourism offerings in recent years, and as the gateway to the North of England, Manchester will continue to be a hugely popular destination within the UK.
