MIPIM, the world’s leading property market, brings together the most influential players from all international property sectors offering unrivalled access to the greatest number of development projects and sources of capital worldwide. 2019 will be Manchester's 20th year at MIPIM, and in this time the partnership has maintained a strong annual presence, cementing itself as a significant contributor to the week’s programme and doing untold work in promoting and furthering Manchester’s international profile.

Manchester realised long ago that the future of the city lay in it having an international presence, and the development industry is a key part of how we build that future.

– Sir Richard Leese - Leader, Manchester City Council

Thanks to this continued effort, Manchester is now one of the most established city partnerships at MIPIM. The 2018 partnership was again incredibly strong, with 107 partner organisations forming a delegation of 273 representatives. This year, Manchester will once again return to the Manchester Pavilion, situated on the famous Croisette. This places Manchester with some of Europe’s leading cities including London, Paris and Istanbul, giving the partnership more exposure than ever before.

Of the 550 cities exhibiting, Manchester’s presence is one of the most significant. This is testament not only to Manchester’s emergence as a leading world city, but also the strength of its ongoing partnership approach.

The Manchester at MIPIM Partnership offers an annual opportunity to establish new connections and showcase projects to an international audience, all while flying the flag for the city-region as a leading destination for overseas investment. We’re proud to be a part of it.
