Midlands UK response to MIPIM 2020 decision

Reed MIDEM, the event organiser of MIPIM, has just confirmed (25th March) that MIPIM 2020 will no longer take place in Cannes during 2-5 June, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

There will be a separate event hosted by Reed MIDEM in Paris during September. The next MIPIM in Cannes will take place on 16-19 March 2021.

Below is a statement from Sir John Peace, Chair, Midlands Engine, in response to this news. We will be sharing the statement online and with the media:

“The continued spread of coronavirus has led the organisers of MIPIM 2020 to cancel this year’s event in Cannes, which had previously been postponed to June. This comes as no surprise following recent developments.

“Whilst it is disappointing that we are unable to attend MIPIM in Cannes, we fully support the organisers’ decision to cancel the event in the current circumstances.

“I would like to thank all our partners across the Midlands for their efforts, patience and continued support during the period of uncertainty around the event over the last few weeks. Our efforts will now turn to securing the best outcome for our partners, and developing our future plans together to ensure the outstanding investment opportunities across the Midlands Engine can be showcased to the world.”
