During the past 12 months, Poland has been notable as one of the European countries to have best resisted the recession. In 2010, Poland is the MIPIM Country of Honour. A special programme of events and conferences has been put together to place Poland in the limelight at MIPIM, with two sessions on Poland in the official programme of conferences, a special tribute to Polish projects during the MIPIM Awards ceremony and much more to come.
Regions and cities are often the driving force behind the international property business and MIPIM will provide plenty of opportunities to meet senior city administrators and attend conference sessions which will discuss everything from sustainable development policy to social housing. And, for the second consecutive year, MIPIM will host the closed-door Mayor’s Think Tank, bringing together some 70 mayors for discussions on urban development policy.
This year’s programme of conferences is particularly diverse and we are extremely grateful to the senior executives who have agreed to share their thoughts and experience with us in Cannes.
