The future of real estate to be highlighted at groundbreaking 30-year edition of MIPIM - the world's leading property market
Every year, MIPIM brings together the most influential players from all sectors of the international property industry for a four-day event of networking, learning and insightful discussion through various conferences and exhibitions. MIPIM 2019 is expected to be attended by over 26,000 participants and more than 5,400 investors.
"For the 30th edition of MIPIM, we have taken 'Engaging the Future' as our central theme and that includes addressing the issue of how upcoming generations will live and work in increasingly populated urban environments. Ban Ki-moon has championed sustainable development and his opening keynote address is expected to set the tone for this very unique MIPIM," says MIPIM Director Ronan Vaspart.
Ban Ki-moon, the eighth Secretary-General of the United Nations, will raise the curtain on MIPIM 2019 on Tuesday, March 12 at 2:00 p.m. in the Palais des Festivals in Cannes, France. He will share his vision of the new global challenges, from climate change and economic upheaval to increasing pressures involving energy and water.
Building the future with real estate
This special edition of MIPIM will highlight the global and societal topics that impact the real estate industry. The central theme will be explored by focusing on future economic growth, community cohesion and sustainability. Revenue streams in the real estate industry are rapidly evolving in the digital era. On this account, companies and investors are changing their approaches to real estate as an investment and product service. At MIPIM 2019, panellists will seek to answer key questions such as "What are the best strategies for long-term benefits?", "What are the best strategies to ensure optimal quality of life?" and "What practices are the most environmentally responsible and how can we utilize existing resources optimally?"
Creating a sustainable real estate Industry
Environmental sustainability will be a key theme at MIPIM 2019. High energy prices, climate change and new government regulations are actively changing traditional industry platforms and practices. The panellists will analyse how these factors are transforming the real estate industry and discuss the different strategies of adapting and investing into moving forward. Additionally, they will discuss how disruptive technologies such as virtual reality, artificial intelligence and big data optimize real estate management and profitability in the digital era.
Young Leaders Summit to focus on transitioning economy
For the first time, MIPIM will feature a Young Leaders Summit focused on millennials and their impact on the real estate industry today and in the future. In the real estate industry, millennials are today's end-users and tomorrow's decision-makers. In addition to promoting a greater environmental awareness, the Young Leaders Summit will analyse the modern sharing economy and its focus on connections and new methods.
"We are excited to be celebrating the 30th anniversary of MIPIM at this year's conference," said Ronan Vaspart, the Director of MIPIM, "This year's theme will look at the next 30 years of real estate and how the industry can contribute to creating a technologically advanced, sustainable and innovative future. We look forward to hosting the world's leading experts from an array of sectors to explore this important topic."
"The real estate sector is in the midst of a technological revolution. Catalysts of this transition include shifting demographics, climate change and advanced technology. The value of a building now lies in its purpose, not its physical construction. MIPIM 2019 will inspire attendees to challenge their understanding of the future of the real estate sector through countless insightful discussions and presentations."
