Lisbon is to be represented at the largest real estate fair in France MIPIM with a stand showcasing the Lisbon region right by the main entrance of the venue in Cannes.

This year the offer will be enhanced by the presence of InvestLisboa – an investment agency — with the participation of local municipal councils in the Greater Lisbon Metropolitan Area, and companies at the largest property fair in the world.
MIPIM will run this year between 14-17 March and will provide a showcase for the city to attract overseas investors. InvestLisboa has already taken over 200 partners to various real estate fairs worldwide over the past few years.
At the event MeetUp Lisboa held at Lisbon City Hall on Wednesday, Diogo Ivo Cruz, the Director of InvestLisboa powered by Iberian Property, highlighted the “opportunity to broaden networking at the highest level through the presence of various political, international and national property movers and shakers and investors” as well as “marketing the Lisbon brand and that of the entire region”.
Although numbers have yet to be finalised, Diogo Ivo Cruz said that the Lisbon stand this year would include 4-5 municipal councils including Lisbon Municipal Council and some that would be taking part for the first time in a joint effort to promote the entire Greater Lisbon Region, including various private companies.
In 2023 the Lisbon region stand, which will be called Atlantic Contact, will be placed right by the main entrance in a spot considered one of the best and most visible positions in terms of visual impact and footfall.
MIPIM representative Alberto Castro said at the presentation event said that it was important for real estate companies in Portugal to attend the event given that MIPIM was a magnet for capital investors.
“MIPIM attracts over 20,000 people of which 50% are considered to be decision-makers and with over 2,000 real estate investment and finance companies from over 80 countries to an event where people in the sector and cities can showcase their identities”, said Cruz.
The President of the APPII, Hugo Santos Ferreira, pointed out that all real estate entities needed to attract capital given that the sector is heavily reliant on international investment since Portugal is capital light and needs to attract it from overseas.
“It is also important for cities to attract companies and investors and MIPIM is ‘the capital’ when it comes to overseas real estate investment. It is the meeting place for the International property investment market so if you are at MIPIM you are at the heart of the real estate world”.
