Paul McCarthy, Chief Executive, Rightacres Property Co
“MIPIM provides the perfect opportunity to bring together property owners, funders and stakeholders in a face to face environment. The principles of the deals for Rightacres Central Square and Central Quay schemes were agreed in MIPIM where we were able to meet the key decision makers who may otherwise have proved difficult to track down.”

Paul Webber, Director, Cardiff Office Leader ARUP
“MIPIM is an excellent opportunity for anyone serious about investment and development in Wales. Working collaboratively with Authorities and professionals enhances the prospect of bringing greater prosperity to Wales and that has to be a good thing!”

Caroline O’Flaherty, Partner, Hugh James

The conference and the events that take place around it are a fantastic way to keep in touch with clients, meet new people from the property world and keep on top of what’s going on in terms of market developments and trends. I am delighted to see Cardiff Council supporting MIPIM again this year; it is a fantastic chance for the city to show of the amazing property work that is happening in Cardiff at the moment and the opportunities that exist for developers, investors and professionals to contribute to the incredible growth of one of Europe’s fastest growing capital cities.”
