January 31, 2019– MIPIM 2019’s central theme, “Engaging the Future,” will focus on envisioning the next 30 years of the real estate industry with an emphasis on sustainability.
The 30th edition of MIPIM will be held on March 12-15, 2019 in the Palais des Festivals in Cannes, France.
Every year, MIPIM gathers 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.
Building the Future with Real Estate
This special edition of MIPIM will highlight global and societal topics impacting 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 within the digital era. As a result, companies and investors are changing their approaches to real estate as an investment and product service. At MIPIM 2019, panelists 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. Panelists will analyze how the real estate industry is being transformed by these factors and discuss strategic ways to adapt and invest 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. The Young Leaders Summit will analyze the modern sharing economy and its focus on connections and new methods of investing in addition to greater environmental awareness.
“We are excited to be celebrating the 30th anniversary of MIPIM at this year’s conference,” said Ronan Vaspart, 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.”
