Businesses across Greater Lincolnshire are invited to join the line-up to take the region to MIPIM, the world’s largest property event held in Cannes annually, in March 2019.
Last year, the largest ever Lincolnshire delegation attended the event in order to attract developers and investors from across the world – and to promote opportunities available throughout the region.
Driven by the Greater Lincolnshire LEP and Team Lincolnshire, the area has succeeded in establishing a recognisable presence in Cannes over the years.
The private-public sector line up of Team Lincolnshire has, for the past four years, helped to reinforce the area’s message and has introduced the region to parties from across the UK which are now investing in Lincolnshire and developing out key sites.
Greater Lincolnshire LEP director, Ruth Carver said that the organisation is looking to build on the success of the previous year as well as MIPIM UK and invites private sector businesses to get involved with Team Lincolnshire to help promote the region on the world stage.
She said: “Team Lincolnshire has gone from strength to strength; in 2018, we took the largest ever delegation to Cannes and we are hoping for another successful year at MIPIM.
“Lincolnshire has a real wealth of opportunity for both investors and developers and a strong public-private sector collaboration in Cannes is a fantastic way to showcase exactly what we have to offer.
“Our work at MIPIM over the last few years has seen real, tangible results and we are delighted to see developers and investors now involved in Greater Lincolnshire following our efforts in Cannes.
“MIPIM is a fantastic opportunity to put Lincolnshire on the map, not just in the UK but globally, and we are looking forward to another positive year. There is still time for sponsors to get involved and become part of the team and take advantage of all MIPIM has to offer.”
In 2019, Lincolnshire will be part of the Midlands Pavilion – a marquee which brings together regions from the East and West Midlands – at the property expo, which will not only promote the wider region as a thriving part of the UK economy, but will also put the spotlight on individual regions through its busy programme of business events during the week.
In 2019, Team Lincolnshire will be focusing on promoting a number of investment opportunities across the region, including: three Food Enterprise Zones, major infrastructure works as well as employment sites and significant housing schemes.
MIPIM will take place from March 12 to 15 centred round a large-scale exhibition in the Palais de Festival in Cannes in the south of France.
