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. Manchester have been exhibiting at MIPIM for 20 years, 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 2019 partnership was again incredibly strong, with 96 partner organisations forming a delegation of 245 representatives. For 2020, 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 and Paris, 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.
