Building on MIPIM 2016. Planning for 2017
16 May 2016
Leeds City Region had another successful trip to MIPIM this year, leading its largest delegation and most ambitious programme of activity to date.
The City Region’s attendance at the world’s largest property and investment show in 2016 included a programme of events covering the themes of smart city placemaking and the impact of high-speed rail on business growth. Additionally there were panel sessions on topics such as the Northern Powerhouse; and announcements from investors and developers including CEG, MEPC, St Paul’s Developments and Harworth Estates.
The City Region’s programme also garnered media attention, resulting in a Northern Powerhouse feature in the Sunday Telegraph and an interview with Roger Marsh OBE, Chair of the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership on Estates Gazette’s podcast. This was further supported by a media partnership with the Financial Times on a 'Business in the North of England' supplement. Keen to keep this momentum going, Leeds City Region is launching its call for sponsors for MIPIM UK 2016 and MIPIM 2017; so pledge your support now.
