At 25 MIPIM Looks To Real Estate Future

PARIS, March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As it celebrates its 25th anniversary, MIPIM will ask international experts to deliver a 360 degree outlook on tomorrow's real estate world.

MIPIM 2014 is organised by Reed MIDEM, a subsidiary of Reed Exhibitions, and will be held in Cannes from 11 to 14 March.

Economists, futurists, European Commissioner, planners, architects, mayors, and developers will provide a public and private mix of opinions about the future of the sector in our conference programme," says Filippo Rean, Director of MIPIM.

Forward-looking conferences include:

The Big Debate - Change perspective: how to adapt the property world to a fast moving international environment? (Thursday, 13 March, 10am-11:30am)
Economic and demographic change together with rapid urbanisation, raises major issues for real estate professionals. Can this sector transform such pressures into opportunities?

Masterminds Europe: Re-inventing Europe (Wednesday, March 12, 10am-11:30am)
In light of the rise of new economic powerhouses in recent years, is Europe still an influential market internationally? Are Europe's large cities and their infrastructure, which follow different development paths, still attractive to international investors?

Futrastructure: rebooting urban infrastructure (Wednesday, March 12, 2:30pm- 3:00pm)
