The Palais des Festivals et des Congrès in Cannes, venue of the trade show

MIPIM (Le marché international des professionnels de l’immobilier) is an international property event hosted in Cannes, France each March. It is hosted by Reed MIDEM and advertised as one of the largest real estate shows, including an exhibition area, networking events and expert-led conference sessions over a period of 4 days.

MIPIM attracts people from a wide variety of real estate sectors. It aims to facilitate business between investors, corporate end-users, local authorities, hospitality professionals, industrial and logistics players and other real estate professionals.

The next MIPIM will be held March 11–14, 2014.


In 2012, MIPIM presented more than 60 conferences featuring 250 speakers.[1] Joschka Fischer, the former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Germany delivered a keynote address on the global economy.

Building Innovation[edit]

A new feature of MIPIM 2012 was the Building Innovation Pavilion.[2] Based on the idea “Think Smart. Build value”, the Building Innovation Pavilion was an area dedicated to showcasing innovative new solutions for more sustainable building and increased value of real estate assets. In this space, participants could network, discover new projects and attend conferences and presentations delivered by architecture experts.

Networking Events[edit]

Each year, MIPIM offers several networking opportunities, with the goal of facilitating business between participants. These events usually include themed networking breakfasts and luncheons, an opening cocktail party, the MIPIM Awards ceremony, and dedicated meetings.[3]

Some examples of formal networking formats include: Link-In sessions, Hotel, Tourism and Leisure (HTL) presentations and Power Meetings, Investors Power Meetings and the Mayors’ Think Tank.


“Re-Invest, The MIPIM Real Estate Institutional Investors Summit”[4] was a new initiative in 2012. It served as a platform for real estate professionals to discuss real estate issues. Prior to the event, research and surveys were commissioned by MIPIM, to determine some of today’s most important industry questions. During the event, participants reviewed the findings of this research, and then debated on the topic “What is the future of fund management and is there a need for a new model?". An analysis of this summit is set to be published and circulated.

Sports by MIPIM[edit]

Another feature of MIPIM 2012 was Sports by MIPIM, a half-day sports seminar.[5] A dedicated programme of conferences and events served as a way for participants to discover the connection between sports and urban development.

Country of Honour[edit]

Each year, MIPIM highlights a country which shows great development and achievement in the real estate industry. The country is named “Country of Honour” and is celebrated through a series of dedicated conferences and events during MIPIM. Germany was named Country of Honour in 2012.[6] Some highlights of this programme included a German themed opening cocktail party, German Pavilion[7] and a keynote address by Joschka Fischer, former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Germany. There were also several German cities exhibiting including Stuttgart,[8] Frankfurt[9] and Munchen.

Turkey has been named as the 2013 Country of Honour,[10] and will receive recognition at the next MIPIM.

The MIPIM Awards[edit]

Each year, developers submit their real estate projects for a chance to win a MIPIM Award in one of several categories. After all entries are submitted, finalists are nominated by a jury of industry professionals. During MIPIM, the jury, as well as MIPIM delegates vote to determine the winners. The awards are presented at an awards ceremony following a red carpet entrance and cocktail.
