Press release, Cannes, 11 March, 2014 – Reed MIDEM, organiser of MIPIM, MIPIM Asia and MIPIM UK, today announces the launch of MIPIM Japan, scheduled to take place in May, 2015.
Based in Tokyo, MIPIM Japan will be an international forum primarily focussed on the Japanese real estate sector. The new event will include gold standard conferences, panels and workshops, numerous networking events and project showcases.
The new two-day event will provide a one-stop forum, highlighting the best of Japan. National and international delegates will have access to the latest property projects, innovative architecture, buildings and cities and new technology.
A statement from Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) said, “The Japan MLIT is very pleased to support the launch of MIPIM Japan on May 20-21, 2015 in Tokyo. MIPIM Japan will be an outstanding opportunity to promote the Japanese real estate market. We are looking forward to welcoming the real estate professionals from around the world willing to invest or source investment in Japan and learn from the solutions Japan has managed to implement in regards to innovative cities, sustainable architecture and construction.”
“MIPIM Japan will bring together leaders from the Japanese real estate sector with international companies that are either interested in investing in Japan or who want to exhibit Asian projects that could be of interest to Japanese investors,” comments Filippo Rean, Director of the MIPIM events portfolio. “Japan is a leader in the Asia-Pacific real estate sector and has been a pioneer in the use of new technology, sustainable building practices and well-managed urban development. We’re honoured to bring MIPIM to Japan.”
Founded in 1990, MIPIM has established itself as the leading international real estate market in the world, with 20,500 delegates from 80 countries expected to attend in March 2014.
