Countdown to MIPIM

With just a few days go Alex Smith of Shakespeare Martineau is preparing for MIPIM. This year his firm is a headline sponsor of the Midlands Pavilion. So what are the opportunities?

With MIPIM, the annual global real estate, development and investment show now only days away, I’m thinking a lot about our approach towards the show and the many real and potential opportunities available to us - of which we must take full advantage.

Shakespeare Martineau is a proud sponsor of a truly Midlands-wide delegation and will stand side-by-side in the Midlands Pavilion with private and public sector partners.

Shakespeare Martineau is sponsoring the launch of the first ever Midlands Pavilion on MIPIM Tuesday – with Midlands Engine chairman Sir John Peace leading the way.

The Midlands is being revolutionised by the dynamic approach brought to it through the increasing influence of private sector partners collaborating with the public sector and our Midlands Pavilion will showcase the region on a truly global scale.

Alongside our other Midlands regional partners we have this year at MIPIM a golden opportunity to place ourselves at the forefront of not only the national, but international stage and to drive inward investment into the region, and show just how effective a truly pan-Midlands approach can be.

I for one am looking forward to seeing the impact of the Midlands Pavilion on the global stage and meeting those influencing our future.
