Mipim partners 1200x600

MIPIM 2020 June 2-5

Influential businesses and organisations are joining forces to endorse Central South, a new identity for the region that will help encourage inward investment.

The initiative is being championed by Business South and endorsed by business leaders, local authorities and organisations such as the Solent Local Enterprise Partnership.

Gavin Hall, Director at Savills, has attended MIPIM before and said: “In previous years, it has been a real shame to be in Cannes flying the flag for the region but without representation from the region and its constituent local authorities.

“The presence in 2020 of Central South, among all the other local authorities from across the UK attending, will ensure our region does not miss out on the opportunity provided by the event in the past and will raise the profile of our region on the global property stage.”

Portsmouth, Southampton, Hampshire, Dorset and South West Surrey are included in the Central South region and the team visiting MIPIM will promote key benefits including:

- Southampton- Mayflower Quarter city centre regeneration programme

- Portsmouth’s multi billion pound regeneration programme

- The region’s first class connectivity

- World leading universities

- Major development and investment opportunities

- A world class lifestyle offer including two national parks


The private sector-led group travelling to MIPIM will include representatives from: Blake Morgan, Savills, Noviun, Barker Mill Estates, Boyle and Summers, Barton Willmore, LSH, Terence O’Rourke, Willmott Dixon, BECG, Hampshire County Council, Portsmouth City Council, Southampton City Council and Solent LEP with support from Southampton Airport, Winchester City Council and WBR.
