Your Badge is your primary means of identification during the show. It provides access to all exhibition areas, conference sessions and exclusive events in and around the Palais. Most participants wear it around their neck all week and remove it only to hit the sack at the end of the night. Be prepared to show it at entry points and security points around the area.

Upon entry into the Palais every morning, be sure to take a copy of the Daily News, the most read magazine during MIPIM. This news journal will give you a snapshot of key happenings, statistics, photos, and highlights of the show. It will also feature short articles on some of the key projects on show, not to mention major themes to tune into at MIPIM this year. You can also catch the Daily News online in the Resource Centre.
