International Real Estate Partners (IREP) recently attended MIPIM, the world’s leading 4-day real estate tradeshow in Cannes, France. The event was a great opportunity to meet and connect with the most influential players from the international real estate sector.
MIPIM offers unrivalled access to the greatest number of development projects and sources of capital worldwide as well as gathering all players from the commercial property value chain for a year’s worth of business in four intensive days.
Furthermore, attending the event allowed IREP to announce the launch of our new joint venture with West Properties (IREP&WEST), which will cover the Serbian and wider Balkan markets. This venture combines the local real estate experience, knowledge, and client base of West Properties (WP) with the technical skillset in facilities management and the wider business opportunities afforded by IREP.
For IREP&WEST, MIPIM was also a chance to start building a cohesive team and share our vision for the joint venture. We discussed core parts of the IREP business, such as ESG and sustainability, and how this fits into the interest of target markets for IREP&WEST. We are already planning further discussions about opportunities in Slovenia, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, as well as some specific projects about ESG and vertical farming in the hospitality sector.
Most of all, it was exciting to present the face of IREP&WEST to the real estate industry at MIPIM. We look forward to a successful partnership with West Properties.
