As MIPIM draws to a close today, Birmingham's delivery of large scale infrastructure, transport and retail developments, as well as its industry leading commitment to sustainable building and low carbon development, attracted more than 900 investors to the city's stand and packed events programme.
Leader of Birmingham City Council, Mike Whitby led the city's presence, which was for the first time organised by Business Birmingham, the city's inward investment programme.
Cllr. Whitby said: “Birmingham has upped its game in how it promotes itself as a global city and is now a premier destination of choice for investors.
“MIPIM has provided the city with an opportunity to not only showcase our vision for making Birmingham a leading global city in which to live, work and invest, but to engage with over 900 representatives of the global developer community.
“The Big City Plan, our blueprint for investors to see how the city will develop over the next 20 years, our vision for improving the city's transport network and connections, with the runway extension at Birmingham airport and HS2, made for a compelling offer for delegates at the conference and I am looking forward to progressing some of the connections we have made this week.”
Key announcements made at MIPIM included, among others:

  • Unveiling of fresh images of New Street John Lewis
  • Certificate of immunity granted for the Library
  • Rider Levett Bucknall appointed by State Bank of India, for a project fit out and refurbish plan for nine high street branches
