Midlands UK is a collaboration between the public and private sector, working together to showcase over £14bn worth of investment opportunities. This joint endeavour involves partners from across the region’s 10 Local Enterprise Areas (LEP’s) joining forces with over 50 private sector partnersit is a showcase supported by the UK Government’s Department for International Trade.

Looking back at MIPIM 2017

In March 2017 Midland’s UK exhibited collectively at global real estate show MIPIM. Based at a pavilion for the first time, the Midlands UK hosted nearly 3,000 international delegates who were able to learn about opportunities to invest in the region. Midlands UK had the busiest events calendar of any UK destination at MIPIM. The team hosted over 50 events, including panel debates and showcase presentations, featuring approximately 100 speakers.

 Sir John Peace, Chair of the Midlands Engine, commented:

“The scope and range of events taking place at the Midlands Pavilion demonstrated how many significant investment opportunities are available across the region. It also highlighted the considerable number of partners that are working together to make MIPIM a success.

Our inaugural presence at the show proved that the Midlands is one of the most competitive and exciting destinations in the world.”

Looking forward to MIPIM 2018

MIPIM is an event that allows you to take advantage of a unique environment, providing exceptional networking, showcasing and commercial opportunities.

You can be part of the greatest showcase of development projects and sources of capital worldwide by becoming a commercial partner to the Midlands UK.

Building on the success of 2017 the Midlands UK will again manage a 200m² pavilion. The pavilion will contain an event space – featuring a programme of presentations, panel discussions and receptions – and a networking area, plus separate sections for each destination partner. The Midlands Pavilion will showcase the region’s plans and build dialogue with the world’s leading sovereign wealth managers, pension funds and other members of the investor community. The delegation will comprises of council leaders / officers, LEP representatives and private sector partners.
