The Government support tag doesn't always have to be applied when referring to Manchester. The city does very well via the private sector, especially through vehicles like Manchester University.

Liverpool get's plenty of EU and Government support that Manchester has never had.

Most Northern cities are held solidly by Labour and hate the Tories. Manchester feels like the only Northern city that has 'moved on' and realised years ago moaning was never going to get you anywhere.

I'm sure Bradford has had a Tory council in recent years which hasn't done it any good in comparison to Labour Leeds.

Well that's true if that's solely Manchester, Nottingham and Liverpool, but Newcastle, Hull, Leeds and Sheffield have all endured Lib Dem and/or Tory leadership in the last decade or more.

It was or isn't quite moaning, but Manchester has the advantage of keen and clear political actors like Leese and Bernstein, other prominent big name protagonists like Anthony Wilson, an economic of scale to it's advantage and a rush of civic and cultural impetuses promoting the city for a generation annd a persuasive sway that can charm the media and to a lesser extent the government.

Lucky circumstances that could occur elsewhere, especially Liverpool, in future.

This "Government support" tag is an acrimonious, cut-copied-pasted cliche. It is beginning to sound like a stuck record with them.

And if these "lucky circumstances" ever do occur, all the luck of the Irish to them on this St. Patricks day.

Back to Mipim, I was satisfied with the number of large developments being revealed and progressed compared to last two years, though disappointed there was no killer scheme with true wow factor.

RECORD year for Manchester. Interesting to see DCM back on the list. I wonder if they are part of a new development in Manchester. I do hope so. I love their work.

Manchester announces 99 partners for MIPIM 2016

9 Feb 2016, 14:48
The Manchester at MIPIM partnership has secured almost 100 organisations to represent the city at this year’s property market event in Cannes.

MIPIM will take place this year from 15 to 18 March.

This is the third year running that Manchester at MIPIM has announced record delegations. 2016 has seen an additional 36 companies join the partnership, taking the total to 99 compared to 73 in 2015 and 59 in 2014.

New partners include John Sisk & Son, LCR, Patrizia, and Select Property Group.

The event will be used as a platform to showcase some of Manchester’s largest developments, including Manchester Life, Bruntwood and Select’s Circle Square, Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs’ St Michael’s and Allied London’s St John’s.

The Manchester at MIPIM Partnership will present the investment and development opportunities across Greater Manchester with the goal of attracting new investors and expertise.

In addition to the Manchester stand presentations, which happen every morning and every afternoon over the three days, the Manchester stand will also feature a daily RIBA design workshop, and a partner event in the early evening.

Speakers already confirmed include Chris Oglesby, chief executive of Bruntwood and Marty Edelman, executive chairman of Manchester Life Development Company.

Manchester stand sessions will be streamed live from www.livestream.com/manchesteratmipim and also available to watch on the homepage of www.manchesteratmipim.com.

Iwan Griffiths, chairman of Marketing Manchester, said: “With the Greater Manchester devolution plan now underway, and the city’s recognition as European City of Science, 2016 stands to be one of the most important years in Manchester’s recent history. As a result, the partnership has a strong set of messages to bring to MIPIM this year, and our challenge is to ensure that we are able to get the most out of these.”

Sponsorship packages for Manchester at MIPIM are divided into three categories; sponsor for £20,000, partner for £9,500, and associate for £5,950. Marketing Manchester did not comment on the sponsorship level for each company within the partnership.

The full list of partners for Manchester at MIPIM 2016 is:

Indeed, I know London have their nicknamed buildings, but DCM have created 2 in the Filing Cabinet (CJC) and the Jenga tower (1 New York St), both good quality too.

Those 15 minute duration presentations don't look to have any meat to them so not looking like any big announcement presentations.

I think the big announcement will be more on Circle Square and something solid on St Michaels. As yet we know very little about St Michaels. I reckon Future living on Tuesday might include an announcement.

TBF MIPIM is always an anti-climax. And when there is something new, it either takes years to deliver or never see's the light of day.

I'm looking forward to St Michael's, Circle Square, Investing in Manchester(Mike Ingall), Housing Generation Z(NOMA), Corridor Manchester(Graphene), and Connecting Manchester.(Transport) There's plenty for us to get our teeth into.

Sadly Manchester Life has turned out to be a damp squid for me. Was really excited by it, but the Architecure has been bog standard and pretty disappointing.

I believe the Connecting 2040 draft strategy is going to be published about a week after MIPIM as well so while some things may make it in I don't think it will see any transport announcements.

Circle Square is going to be a discussion with RIBA and Bruce Katz rather than an announcement hence why it's got an hour to fill.
