Lincolnshire businesses encouraged to grasp investment opportunities at MIPIM 2020

Businesses across Lincolnshire are being encouraged to take part in the Midlands UK delegation at this year’s MIPIM, the world’s largest property event.

Businesses across Lincolnshire are being encouraged to take part in the Midlands UK delegation at this year’s MIPIM (Cannes, 10-13 March 2020), the world’s largest property event.

Billions-of-pounds’ worth of investment is agreed each year at the international property and real estate show, with major regional projects such as Greater Lincolnshire’s Grantham £80 million Southern Relief Road tracing their origins back to the event.

For the fourth year in a row, the Midlands UK delegation will bring together the region’s public and private sector leaders to showcase their most important regeneration and development schemes. This presence at MIPIM aims to grow the Midlands’ reputation as a globally competitive investment destination.

MIPIM provides the opportunity to profile businesses and projects, strengthen networks and share knowledge with industry peers. The show is the world’s largest real estate event, bringing together a global audience of more than 26,000 delegates from key markets such as the USA, Middle East and Western Europe.

Sir John Peace, Chair of the Midlands Engine, said:

“MIPIM offers an unrivalled opportunity for the private and public sectors to join forces and showcase our multitude of major developments and schemes to an international audience.

“The Midlands powers the UK economy, as a hotbed of talent, innovation and enterprise. Showcasing its strengths at MIPIM will help us to attract more global investment – helping to regenerate the region, create new jobs and deliver inclusive growth.”

To date, major businesses including platinum partners Birmingham Airport and St Joseph have signed up to join the Midlands UK delegation for MIPIM 2020. Others include Bruntwood, Lovell Partnership and Arup.

Tony Pidgley CBE, Chairman of St Joseph, a Berkeley Group company, said:

“The Midlands is a fantastic place to invest, with strong leaders, a clear vision for the future and ambitious regeneration programmes well underway.

“We are proud to be part of this growth story and to be working in partnership to create the new homes and opportunities local communities need.”

In 2019, £11 billion of major development schemes were presented at the Midlands UK Pavilion to potential investors, partners, clients and suppliers. A busy event programme, comprising 43 events and 97 speakers, also highlighted the region’s most significant investment opportunities.

Grantham Southern Relief Road

Greater Lincolnshire’s Grantham Southern Relief Road took a step forward after conversations at MIPIM between Lincolnshire County Council, South Kesteven District Council, the Greater Lincolnshire LEP, Highways England, Homes and Communities Agency and local businesses.

The project will unlock £1 billion of sustainable growth by improving connectivity and journey times and secures significant housing and employment opportunities for South Kesteven.

Ursula Lidbetter OBE, Chair of Greater Lincolnshire LEP, commented:

“MIPIM is the cornerstone of our activity in promoting Greater Lincolnshire to a global audience of property investors and developers.

“We are excited once again to be joining the Midlands UK delegation at MIPIM 2020 and look forward to continuing to build relationships with senior executives within the property industry.”
