As key headline sponsor for Team Derby and Derbyshire at MIPIM 2019, the University of Derby will use the event to showcase its future plans for investment and development.

Professor Judith Lamie, Pro Vice-Chancellor – External Affairs at the University and Marketing Derby Board Member, will lead the team along with Professor Warren Manning, Pro Vice-Chancellor Dean of the College of Engineering and Technology.

Commenting about their attendance at the world’s largest property event, Professor Lamie said:

For the University of Derby there are two main reasons to attend MIPIM this year – the current investment opportunities with regards to our ambitions to extend our campus further into the city centre, and the proposed Science Park at Infinity Park Derby, and secondly, supporting the ongoing regeneration of the city in order to attract more students.

The plans include the development of a University Quarter in the city including a new University Enterprise Zone as well as a possible new business school.

The staff will join the largest Derby and Derbyshire team at MIPIM and will take part in the first international Derby and Derbyshire Embassy on Wednesday 13th March.

Commenting about the delegation John Forkin, Managing Director of Marketing Derby, said:

We are delighted that the University is sending a strong delegation as part of Team Derby and Derbyshire. Its ambition to extend further into the city and county complements our offerings.
