Team Nottingham will once again head to MIPIM, the world’s largest property event in France this Spring (12-15 Mar) as it looks to promote the city on the world stage.
Already over 30 sponsors have signed up to join the combined public-private sector team, which will be highlighting key sites and development opportunities particularly in Nottingham’s Southside at the expo – promoting the city to potentially thousands of investors in the space of a few days.
In 2019, MIPIM celebrates its 30th anniversary and is set to welcome some 25,000 delegates from more than 100 countries around the globe.
Lorraine Baggs is head of inward investment at Invest in Nottingham and she believes that the city has one of its strongest ever offerings in 2019. Nottingham will present the ambitious and inspiring Southside development programme, representing £2bn of investment, which will offer unprecedented prime real estate opportunities within a unique 0.5sq mile area in the heart of the city centre, enhancing Nottingham’s reputation as a world-class destination.
She said “Nottingham is embarking upon one of the largest regeneration programmes of any UK city, with plenty of opportunities for further development available. The City Council have invested heavily in Southside already with the renovation of the station, extended the award-winning tram system, the Broadmarsh shopping centre and enhanced public realm. This investment has had a catalytic effect on driving further interest and investment into the area. The recent announcement of the ‘game-changing’ investment in a new regional public sector hub at Unity Square, opposite the Station, will support 4,000 jobs in phase 1 alone. The Council will be looking for development partners to bring forward a number of other schemes.
“For Team Nottingham, MIPIM provides a fantastic platform for us to collectively target specific individuals and companies who we could work with to bring forward some of the potential development schemes we have.
MIPIM takes place from 12 to 15 March centred around a large-scale exhibition in the Palais de Festival in Cannes in the south of France which attracts tens of thousands of visitors. For more information, log onto www.investinnottingham.com
