Businesses including GVA, NBS and Port of Tyne will join Invest Newcastle at next year’s international property show in Cannes

More than 25 regional and national businesses have confirmed attendance at next year’s MIPIM: The World’s Leading Property Market in Cannes.

Keepmoat, Port of Tyne, GVA, Ryder Architecture, Highbridge Properties, NBS and Science Central are just some of the key partners that will join Invest Newcastle at the international property event, where they will help to promote the city’s future vision and attract investment.

Chief executive of Newcastle City Council Pat Ritchie said: “Last year was about building momentum and confidence, and this year we feel that Newcastle’s moment has arrived and that there has never been a better time to invest in Newcastle. MIPIM is a great platform to showcase our collective offer.

“The city is seeing sustained growth and our market position is solid as developments like Newcastle Science Central and the Stephenson Quarter continue at pace. Our strong partnership approach demonstrates that we are willing and open for business.”

Delegates to next year’s event – which will take place March 13-16, at The Palais des Festivals – will include global capital investors who

will be able to visit the Newcastle Pavillion and hear from key partners discussing topics such as talent and skills growth in North East England and thought leadership in the investment space, such as new peer-to-peer funding models.

GVA, one of the UK’s leading and most diverse real estate advisory service, is one organisation that will be sponsoring and partnering with Invest Newcastle to represent the city next year.

Roger Speirs, senior regional director at GVA Newcastle, said: “GVA are delighted to be supporting Invest Newcastle. We see this as an excellent opportunity to promote some of the major projects and schemes that we are involved in including Science Central and the East Pilgrim Street regeneration scheme.

“We are again sponsoring the investor dinner and will be holding a seminar on public and private sector partnering.

“MIPIM is a great forum to promote the region to investors and potential occupiers and it is therefore key that we attend. Partnering with Invest Newcastle gives us the opportunity to stand alongside both public and private sector partners to present a united story. MIPIM is a powerful and unique opportunity to promote the region to potential inward investors.”
