I was very interested to read your comments about MIPIM in a recent Astragal column (AJ 28.9.00).
With nearly 13,000 professionals attending MIPIM this year, the market is still undoubtedly the premier international property event, and naturally people will be inclined to draw favourable comparison between it and other initiatives.
With regard to the supposed 'rumours' surrounding the market and our operations, I can absolutely confirm that we have no plans to move the location of our market from Cannes to Nice. The Reed Midem Organisation operates a number of non-property trade markets in Cannes, all of which work successfully, with often higher numbers of delegates. Our clients enjoy returning to Cannes, which provides them with the optimum circumstances in which to do business successfully.
