International investors and real estate professionals looking to select sites with investment or development potential in the Sheffield City Region will also have the opportunity to discuss the new Locate in SCR web tool at MIPIM. This powerful online tool enables investors to make smart decisions about their investment and relocation needs and makes it even easier for them to identify, evaluate and choose different locations in our region for their next UK property and portfolio addition.
Rachel Clark, Director of Trade and Investment at the Sheffield City Region, explains: “Sheffield City Region is open for business. At MIPIM, we’ll be showing our strong proposition to investors and developers – how we are the place to live, work and invest.
We are excited to discuss our plans to transform the region and MIPIM provides an excellent opportunity to engage with international partners - and forge new investment partnerships on a global stage.”
Dave Smith, Chief Executive of the Sheffield City Region, said: "MIPIM gives us an ideal platform for demonstrating how we collaborate and build long term partnerships with investors and developers. As we have seen in the past, the connections we make at MIPIM can be powerful and long lasting, leading to future opportunities for investors, for companies looking to relocate in the UK and for enhancing our partnerships within the Northern Powerhouse.”
