MIPIM 2011 will recognise the Dutch real estate sector with the introduction of Gateway Netherlands, a premium content, conference and networking exhibition zone dedicated to promoting the country's property industry to the 18,000 MIPIM delegates expected in Cannes.
"Dutch companies are major players in the international real estate market and they have been among the 10 best represented countries at MIPIM since its creation in 1990. In March 2011, Gateway Netherlands will federate the best of the country's real estate companies and give Dutch delegates the opportunity to present their know-how and projects to international real estate companies and to exchange ideas with major international property players," says Nadine Castagna, Director of MIPIM.
To do that, the Dutch property community will benefit from a special content and networking area within the MIPIM exhibition hall. This new, open area will be a lively networking and discussion platform, designed to enhance the Dutch position on the international real estate investment and development market.
For two days, the Dutch networking area will feature a strong content programme organised in cooperation with three major Dutch real estate publications. It will include keynote addresses by internationally-renowned Dutch property executives, panel discussions and project pitching. Major Dutch and international representatives of the property business will be participating in these events and will share their views during focussed conference sessions.
"MIPIM welcomes delegations from over 80 countries to Cannes and it is an indication of the strategic importance of the Netherlands within international real estate that we have created Gateway Netherlands," comments Nadine Castagna. "MIPIM exists to facilitate business and business contacts and we believe Gateway Netherlands will be an outstanding platform for bringing together Dutch and international real estate executives."
