The Birmingham Post has been the first for MIPIM news – and it was at the centre of the action when a Post reception kicked off proceedings.
City council leader Sir Albert Bore hosted the event, which drew in dozens of delegates.
He outlined the mission for MIPIM 2014 – to not only promote the range of flagship schemes and cutting-edge infrastructure projects currently underway and outlined the opportunities on offer to investors and developers through the future changes to our landscape.
Sir Albert said: “Much has been done to build Birmingham’s profile as a leading European investment destination in recent times. Our strategy, which focuses on growing and promoting sectors we have strengths in, those that have the potential to grow globally and the development of a responsive business environment, has helped to make the city an increasingly firm fixture on investor location lists.”
