MIPIM 2015 in Cannes attracted 22,000 participants, clearly confirming the investors confidence in many areas and sectors of the international real estate.
With 93 represented countries, 450 exhibitors and more than 4,500 investors present among the 22,000 participants, the MIPIM 2015 confirms its status as the world’s real estate market, to meet the needs of investors who are actively looking for attractive projects. The increased confidence in international real estate, already observed during the MIPIM in 2014, continued this year.
Increase in global real estate investment
According to data published by Cushman & Wakefield during MIPIM 2015, the global real estate investment is expected to see and increase of 11% this year up to 1.2 trillion euros, led by the United States and Europe.
According to DTZ, investments in Central and Eastern Europe in logistics projects have reached a new record last year with 1.7 billion investment.

BNP Paribas Real Estate said that investment in office property in 39 major European cities has reached 74 billion euros in 2014 – reaching its highest level since 2007.
Ambitious French projects
To honor the presence at MIPIM 2015 of Camille Cerf, Miss France 2015, on the Calais Promotion stand and to celebrate the nice French victories at MIPIM Awards – the Euroméditerrannée seafront boulevard and the Cité musicale of Ile Seguin – we dedicated most of our reports to exciting French projects such as Dijon’s International City of Gastronomy.
Focus on quality of life
Quality of life and sustainable development are among the priority criteria of local authorities but also of developers and managers specialized in commercial real estate, more and more keen to offer optimal working environment for the occupants of office buildings. In addition, shopping centers focus on providing customers with an “extra human something” to attract new customers in malls.
