After concerns were raised about the “lack of visibility on travel restrictions and quarantine rules connected to the Covid-19 pandemic,” MIPIM 2021 has been pushed from March 2021 to June 2021.
The event will now take place in Cannes between Monday June 7 and Thursday June 10.
The news follows the cancellation of the 2020 instalment of the real estate conference.
A statement says: “We understand that for you and your international counterparts, attending MIPIM requires lots of forward planning. In a world where it is difficult to assess where we will be regarding Coronavirus in the days, weeks or even months to come, we are doing our best to anticipate developments and provide solutions that meet your needs and concerns.
“As you know, following the cancellation of the Cannes edition of MIPIM 2020, we invited delegates to tell us whether you wanted a refund or to carry over fees to next year. If you opted for the carry over, then this will be applied to the new June dates.”
It continued: “Covid-19 has disrupted all of our lives and we thank you for your patience and understanding during these challenging times. Our objective is to continue to provide you with an event that supports your business and allows the real estate sector to start preparing for what is being called the ‘new normal.’ Above all, we will not compromise on health and safety.”
