MIPIM (in French, Le Marché International des Professionnels de L’immobilier) is an international property event hosted in Cannes, France each March. It is hosted by Reed MIDEM and includes an exhibition area, networking events and conference sessions over four days. The 2021 event is due to take place from 7 to 10 June.


The event aims to facilitate business between investors, corporate end-users, local authorities, hospitality professionals, industrial and logistics players and other real estate professionals. [1]


MIPIM presents discussions, keynotes, panels and presentations focusing on property investment, trends and development across many real estate sectors. [2]

MIPIM offers several networking events, with the goal of facilitating business between participants. These events usually include themed breakfasts and luncheons, an opening cocktail party, the MIPIM Awards ceremony, and dedicated meetings. [3]

"RE-Invest (the Real Estate Institutional Investors' Summit) [4] serves as a platform to discuss real estate issues. Prior to the event, research and surveys are commissioned by MIPIM to determine important industry questions. During the event, participants review and debate the findings of this research. An analysis of the summit is then published and circulated.

Country of Honour

Each year, MIPIM highlights a country which shows great development and achievement in the real estate industry. The country is named "Country of Honour" and a series of conferences and events are held about it. Germany was named Country of Honour in 2012, [5] Turkey was named as the 2013 Country of Honour, [6] and in 2014, Brazil, Russia and Turkey were recognised as Countries of Honour.
