MIPIM UK: Manchester and Liverpool stand together

21 Oct 2014, 11:26

Jessica Swettenham

As delegates across the region returned from the first MIPIM UK, with a repeat conference confirmed by organisers for next year, there were mixed views on how the North West had presented itself and who would return for 2015.

Manchester and Liverpool chose to host a joint stand, right in the centre of the conference space. Sean Beech, chairman of the steering committee for Liverpool at MIPIM and partner at Deloitte, told Place North West that while two separate representations at MIPIM in Cannes could be expected, unification at MIPIM UK made the most sense. "In the UK, given the political climate, Liverpool and Manchester are seen as the only bit of the UK that can compete with London. It's not about promoting individual schemes - if one projects gets investment, then everyone benefits." - See more at: http://www.placenorthwest.co.uk/news....zjwlDv3z.dpuf

I am very hopeful there will be a few surprises this year. Particularly for large scale development around the eastern part of the city centre.

I'm not expecting any big surprises. There's no need really; the developments that those speakers are talking about are huge enough as they are and will receive plenty of interest at MIPIM without any big reveals.
