This huge property market exhibition and conference is held over 4 full days and encompasses over 20,000 participants including exhibitors and keynote industry speakers. It features everybody from the international property sectors, including office and residential developers; real estate agents, and representatives from the healthcare and sports world.

It will be interesting to see what comes out of this Real Estate show this year. During 2023, the Real Estate industry in France has taken a real battering, with reportedly over 900 Estate Agencies closing their doors, property sales down by 20% and house prices starting to fall. Although this Real Estate conference has an international focus, it will nevertheless be interesting to see if the experiences in France are being felt in other parts of the World.


What does MIPIM stand for?

MIPIM stands for "Le marché international des professionnels de l’immobilier" so it is no wonder they decided to abbreviate it to just MIPIM!! But what is MIPIM? Well MIPIM Cannes was set up in 1991 to provide a forum for the International Real Estate Property market to showcase new developments and to discuss shared issues of concern such as financing and developments in real estate marketing. Today this Cannes real estate conference has developed into a huge international event. In truth it has become more of a networking and marketing event than an industry focus group, but it does still attract some important players in the International real estate world.

MIPIM Cannes attracts over 2,500 exhibitors from 93 different countries. In total MIPM Cannes is visited by over 20,000 people during the 4 days of the show. During MIPIM Cannes there are numerous keynote speakers and panels which focus on property investment, industry trends and developments across many real estate sectors. These events usually include breakfast networking meetings, an opening cocktail party and the prestigious MIPIM Awards ceremony, and dedicated meetings.
