Europe dominates at 2017 MIPIM awards

Europe dominated the 2017 MIPIM awards, with projects across the continent taking home almost all of the prizes.

The three-day event, which took place last week in Cannes, saw 24,200 real estate and city leaders from 100 countries, including 5,000 investors and financial institutions, come together.

For the first time in the history of MIPIM, the UK government was represented with its own pavilion and Britain’s ‘Invest in Great’ marketing slogan was highly visible. Indeed, Cushman & Wakefield identified the United States as the leading target for investors, followed by China and the United Kingdom.

While the event unfolded against a background of continued debate on how Brexit will impact the world’s property market, though, love for Europe from all parties was as strong as ever: the awards, which were announced at a gala ceremony held in the Grand Auditorium of the Palais des Festivals, saw projects from Denmark, France, Germany, Poland, the United Kingdom and Belgium all win awards.

The prizes were decided by the MIPIM Awards jury, which was chaired by John FORRESTER, Chief Executive, EMEA, Cushman & Wakefield (UK), and including Meka BRUNEL – CEO, Gecina (France), Amanda CLACK – President, RICS (United Kingdom), Serge FAUTRE – CEO, AG Real Estate (Belgium), Paolo GENCARELLI – Unicredit Group (Italy), Frank KHOO – Global Head of Asia, AXA Real Estate (Singapore), Tinka KLEINE – Head of Private Real Estate Europe, PGGM (The Netherlands), Barbara KNOFLACH – Deputy Chief Executive & Global Head of Investment, BNP Paribas Real Estate (Germany), Sergey KUZNETSOV – Chief Architect, City of Moscow (Russia), Salwa MIKOU – Co-founder Architect SIA-RIBA-DLPG, Mikou Design Studio (France), and Guy PERRY – President of Cities and Strategy, Essel Group India and Senior Advisor, McKinsey & Company.
