MIPIM 2021 will take place in September in a hybrid format. Ukraine will be represented at the exhibition in March 2022

International investment exhibition MIPIM resumes its operation after several reschedules. MIPIM September Edition 2021 will offer its participants a hybrid format during September 7 – 8 in Palais des Festivals, Cannes. Ukraine will be represented at MIPIM in the usual format with an exhibition stand, program, and Ukrainian business community in 2022 from March 15th – 18th.

According to the organization committee, MIPIM September Edition is aimed to reconnect ‘in-person’ with industry leaders to achieve business goals and reassess strategy after a long pause due to COVID-19!

The hybrid format of MIPIM 2021 means a combination of a new digital platform, accessible all year long to the MIPIM community together with physical experience including exhibition stands, offline events, and MIPIM Awards.

According to Dmitry Dopiro, MIPIM Representative in Ukraine MIPIM September Edition is a unique event, designed to bring the international real estate community and investors together in person after months of restrictions. This special two-day event will give MIPIM clients around the world the opportunity to come together for the first time this year, participate in high-level conferences, use networking opportunities at an exhibition area and on the digital platform.

There are several formats of participation at MIPIM 2021:

  • Annual digital pass gives access to matchmaking and networking on the platform until the end of 2021 including extended access to content & participants directories of Propel by MIPIM 2021 events and MIPIM Asia Summit 2021.
  • September Digital Pass gives access to online networking and keynotes until the end of September.
  • Onsite pass gives access to MIPIM events, conferences, networking & exhibition area in Cannes 7-8 September 2021 as well as all digital benefits, including extended digital platform access content & participants directories of Propel by MIPIM 2021 events, MIPIM Asia Summit 2021, and other digital events until the end of 2021.

Even though Ukraine will not be represented at MIPIM with an exhibition stand in September, representatives of all Ukrainian real estate businesses are invited to participate in the common program provided by MIPIM September Edition 2021.

“After discussion with the partners, we concluded that Ukraine will participate in the usual four-day exhibition which will take part in March 2022. Such an approach is more appropriate for achieving the goals we set. Thus, now we focus on preparing for MIPIM 22. During this year we have already conducted the online session with local and international speakers. In the fall we will hold the hybrid event for all partners”, says Anna Nestulia, initiator and co-organizer of Ukraine at MIPIM.
