On March 15-18, 2022, global real estate players in Cannes will gather at MIPIM (Fr. Le Marché International des Professionnels de l’immobilier – an international fair of real estate professionals).
MIPIM is the #1 Investment event that gathers the most influential players from all sectors related to intelligent urban development, investments in PropTech, infrastructure, and classical and alternative real estate. The event gathers over 26 000 participants, including 6 000 investors, 560 political leaders from 100 countries.
The exhibition has been taking place since 1990. Ukraine has been represented at MIPIM for over 15 years by cities, companies, and various projects. For the last three years, the Ukrainian market has been represented by Kyiv City, headed by Mayor Vitalii Klitschko and supported by the local business community.
For five years now, Ukrainian real estate players have been gathering around the Ukraine initiative at MIPIM (under the name Ukraine at MIPIM), which has become an integral part of participation at investment exhibitions.
“This is an example of uniting real estate players to adequately present the Ukrainian market and the Ukrainian brand in general on the international arena. Our task as organizers is to follow global trends, the focus of international companies, and maintain communication with foreign players to adapt the Ukrainian program to MIPIM,” Principal of the Invest in Projects agency, co-organizer of Ukraine at MIPIM Anna Nestulia says.
Anna adds that critical trends observed in global markets are:
- The transformation and digitalization of offices and the urban environment.
- The development of logistics real estate.
- The growth and diversification of the housing market.
In addition, the topics of ESG (ecology, social responsibility, and governance) and sustainable development remain a separate powerful focus for foreign companies, particularly investors.
“In 2022, the exhibition’s main theme will be Driving Urban Change,” says Dmytro Dopiro, MIPIM representative in Ukraine. – The fight for clean air, solving transport problems, comfortable living, working and labor conditions for citizens – the global community will discuss all this at numerous conferences at the exhibition. MIPIM 2022 will take place from March 15 to March 18, and we invite everyone to join the collective stand of Ukrainian companies at MIPIM.”
“The speed of serious transformations in numerous segments of the economy, as well as the importance of eco-systems, is growing at an increasing rate, and such positive changes can be observed in Ukraine as well, – says Yuriy Kryvosheya, President & Managing Partner at Toronto-Kyiv; Head of Supervisory Board of Ukraine at MIPIM. – Taking into consideration the amazing potential of our market, we can and should make proper steps forward to not only participate in such transformations but even to lead such certain positive changes and innovations. Today, Ukraine gives birth to innovative products & technologies, and, often, the property & RE market serves as the infrastructure and platform for their subsequent application & usage. Thus, it is time to move forward onto the next level of overall development in a synergetic manner. MIPIM, in addition to being one of the top global stages for investor relations, provides instruments to the aforementioned improvements and provides exposure to additional ideas, all of which have the potential to launch a positive virtuous cycle. We just need to act, and to do so together!”

In 2021 during privatization auction, UDP, in consortium with A Development, acquired Bilshovyk Plant (35 ha of the first Kyiv Machine-Building Plant). In Soviet times, the plant produced stationary machines and equipment for the chemical, coal, oil industries, and subway construction. The production was unique and exclusively custom-made. Now, out of 36 workshops, only two are operating. Part of the property is leased; the rest is simply destroyed.
New owners learn several concepts offered by Ukrainian and Polish architects. Also, the company will involve world-known architects.
