Team Nottingham will be joining forces with Midlands colleagues to showcase investment opportunities worth almost £10 billion at this year’s global property and real estate show MIPIM (13th-16th March, Cannes, France), making up the largest delegation Midlands UK has ever taken to the annual event.

As part of the delegation, Team Nottingham will present a multi-million pound portfolio to the exhibition’s 24,000 attendees, which will include potential investors, property agents, developers and media from more than 100 countries.

It is the second year that Nottingham has joined the Midlands region to work together to attract investment from around the world, following a successful united presence at MIPIM 2017. It also marks the tenth anniversary for the city’s attendance at the event.

Supported by over 70 public and private partners from across the Midlands, the Midlands UK pavilion will play host to a packed programme of more than 50 events, including presentations, receptions and panel discussions with dedicated meeting space to encourage fruitful discussions on investment and development opportunities.

Lorraine Baggs, head of investment at Invest in Nottingham, said: “As the heartbeat of the nation’s economy, the Midlands delegation will propel Nottingham – and other regional cities – into the global spotlight. 

“We’re proud to be taking a pivotal role by being part of the wider Midlands presence for another year, showcasing Nottingham’s development opportunities. Being part of the wider offer will help to promote the region and therefore bring benefits to the city.

“We are particularly pleased to be taking the biggest Nottingham team with us, in such a big year for the city and its neighbours.”

Sir John Peace, chairman of the Midlands Engine, added: “The Midlands UK delegation will show the world that the region is open for business. We are confident about the future and are ready to build on the Midlands commercial and trading history.

“Where else can you find one of the fastest growing regions in the world, sitting at the heart of one of the world’s largest economies, with a bed of skills and infrastructure in which to grow your business?

“By working together, Midlands UK will promote the region to investors and trade partners – delivering more growth, exports, jobs, and a better quality of life for those living in the region.”

The Midlands UK area has a population of 10 million people - 15.4% of the UK - and an economy worth more than £200 billion economy. Last year, the Midlands UK region attracted 225 foreign direct investment projects, creating over 8,300 new jobs.
