"MIPIM was a fantastic platform for us to launch the Giant on the Quayside development. MIPIM got us in front of the right people, at the right time and as a result, we managed to secure two very serious offers of intent to provide finance for our development. Both offers are now being progressed further and we expect to make an announcement confirming our funding partner before the end of the year."

- Nigel Hartley, Chief Operating Officer

"MIPIM is our single best opportunity to showcase what Gateshead has got to offer to developers and investors from all over the world. It has proved itself as a platform for attracting and securing international investment. Our £260mflagship project, to bring a waterfront arena, conference and exhibition centre to Gateshead Quays was a hot topic and sparked major interest from public and private sector partners."

- Councillor Martin Gannon, Leader of Gateshead Council
