Lincolnshire businesses invited to attend MIPIM 2018

Businesses in Greater Lincolnshire are invited to join the line up taking the region to MIPIM in Cannes, the world’s biggest property event in 2018.

Lincolnshire will be in Cannes again next year in a bid to attract leading developers and investors from across the globe – and market the region’s growing investment and development opportunities.

Driven by the Greater Lincolnshire LEP and Team Lincolnshire, the area has succeeded in establishing a recognisable presence in Cannes over the years.

Lincolnshire businesses already signed up are:

  • Pygott and Crone
  • Roythornes
  • LK2
  • Building Services Design
  • YMD Boon
  • Woodhead Group
  • BSP Consulting
  • Fraser Brown
  • Cartwright Communications
  • Willmott Dixon
  • CPMG

The LEP is now asking Lincolnshire firms to come forward if they are keen to sponsor the area’s presence – and be part of the delegation.

Greater Lincolnshire LEP director Ruth Carver said: “In 2017, we had the best public-private sector collaboration to date. We have a number of private sector firms already signed up for 2018 – and we are looking for more to ensure we have an even stronger, vital team of like-minded individuals to promote our local opportunities.

“There are so many opportunities for UK regions at Cannes – when it will be propelled onto an international stage.

“For sponsors, there are many opportunities too – and a chance for businesses to work closely with regional partners and be part of the Midlands Engine through the Midlands UK Pavilion.

“We are determined to make the most of opportunities at MIPIM in a targeted way, put Lincolnshire on the international stage and encourage investment in the area.”

Councillor Colin Davie, executive councillor for economy and place at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “With major new roads, food enterprise zones and other exciting developments coming to fruition, there has never been a better time to do business in Lincolnshire.

“However, it’s not unusual to meet people from outside the county who know nothing about us. We’re working hard to change that, and, over the years, MIPIM has proved an ideal opportunity to promote our county and has helped attract new investors to the area.”
