The digital platform replacing the MIPIM conference this year has been launched by organiser Reed MIDEM. Here we highlight the webinars and features most of interest to the proptech world.
Despite its creation in response to the cancellation of MIPIM in Cannes due to the coronavirus outbreak, MIPIM Connect will remain available all year round, along with the 2021 events in Cannes, Paris, New York and Hong Kong.
MIPIM Connect includes a section which is accessible for free, and another section reserved for customers who were registered for MIPIM 2020.
The digital service includes a networking tool which connects users based on their matchmaking preferences, when virtual meetings, chat conversations and shared presentations can then be proposed.
The platform also features content such as webinars and studies of the international property market. Every Tuesday and Thursday until September, there will be webinars featuring property experts who were due to speak at the 2020 conference, with a different theme highlighted each month.
The first theme is ‘embracing the change’ and includes a focus on how the property industry can implement new strategies, including the greater use of technology.

Ronan Vaspart, director of MIPIM, said: “Everyone in the property sector has been hit hard by the coronavirus, and first of all the MIPIM team and I would like to express our continuing support for them. This crisis has halted a great many projects and is putting social distancing in our cities to the test. In response, MIPIM is remaining true to its DNA by promoting contacts and exchanges, and sharing information to help all property professionals continue their activity. I hope that this initiative will further contribute to jointly building tomorrow’s cities.”
