"MIPIM 2019 was a massive success for Knight Frank. We had such a positive response from our launch event, and we are now engaging with a number of developers who are interested in the Stephenson Quarter. It was a privilege to be an ambassador for our region, and I have no doubt that the conversations that were had will lead to longer-term business partnerships and investment for our region."

Our MIPIM 2020 Partners

"Avison Young has been part of the Newcastle delegation to MIPIM for the past three years. It provides us with the opportunity to engage with decision makers, pitch opportunities and raise our profile in the region. It really is a great platform for everyone to come together to promote our region to investors, developers, inward investment companies and potential occupiers. For me, it is crucial for us to be part of the North East conversation and highlight the connected effort of partners in supporting the region to achieve its economic ambitions. We will be part of ‘Team Newcastle’ again in 2020 and we look forward to championing our region and everything it has to offer."

- Gordon Hewling, Principal Managing Director, Avison Young
