A delegation from across the Midlands, comprising ten local enterprise partnerships (LEPs) and almost 50 public and private sector partners, will travel to France next month to showcase £14bn worth of development projects at property festival MIPIM 2017.
The Midlands Engine delegation will be the largest of its kinds to represent the UK at the MIPIM 2017 Showcase.
Investment opportunities will be centred on HS2 as well as the region’s enterprise zones, housing and commercial schemes.
Sir John Peace, chairman of the Midlands Engine, said: “The Midlands is coming together on an unprecedented scale at MIPIM to attract even more investment from around the world.
“The Midlands Engine is working hard to accelerate growth across the whole region and local authorities, LEPs and businesses are all collaborating to bring this ambition to fruition. MIPIM is always a success for our region and this year we have more exciting investment opportunities than ever before.”
Partners include Greater Birmingham, Coventry City Council, Coventry & Warwickshire LEP, D2N2, Leicester & Leicestershire LEP, Lincoln, the Marches, Worcestershire and Telford.
Developments will be showcased in the Midlands Pavillion, an event space with up to 50 presentations, panel discussions and receptions.
MIPIM 2017 takes place in Cannes from 14 to 17 March.
