Four intrepid travellers returned from MIPIM last week having kicked the 2016 conference season off in style. With brains buzzing but sadly no sun tan, after unseasonably chilly weather on the French Riviera, the team was in high spirits following the four day event.

The mood of this year’s UK delegation at MIPIM can be neatly condensed as “cautious optimism” which seems to be becoming a buzz phrase during the waiting game before the EU referendum in June. British delegates were out in force and, despite the uncertainty, demand for overseas investment into the UK seems as strong as ever.

On top of a jam packed networking calendar, the trip saw Redwood manning a stand for a major south London scheme, supporting a client media breakfast for 11 intentional property investment journalists, facilitating seven media meetings for a range of clients and hosting the annual Redwood dinner on Wednesday night.

The team also achieved a steady stream of coverage for clients on the pages of MIPIM News throughout the week, as well as securing panellist slots for senior clients on the London stand.
