Global Guardians at MIPIM 2016
Posted on October 13, 2016
Next week, Global Guardians Management is proud to be exhibiting at the 2016 MIPM Stand K-13, where our Account Managers Lauren and Patrick will join our Security Director, Stuart Woolgar to discuss some of the issues surrounding the property sector.
The conference is one of the biggest gatherings of property owners and investors in the world, with the 2015 conference attended by over 150 developers and 400 investors; last year MIPIM welcomed delegations from US, Canada, Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong. This year’s conference will have an added significance, as it will be the first conference to convene since the divisive EU referendum on 23rd June, in which the UK voted decisively to leave the European Union.
This means that the key influencers in the property and real estate industry will meet this year against the backdrop of a new reality. This year’s speeches, debates and discussions will no doubt centre on how Brexit affects key issues with which the industry must inevitably grapple: these include property investment, property asset management, affordable housing, infrastructure and urban regeneration.
Against this backdrop, our Security Director, Stuart Woolgar, will be talking about the alternative asset market; those assets and investments which are usually less liquid and may take longer to yield ROI. With a recent survey showing that 79% of investors have expressed a desire to increase their exposure to that market by 2019, Stuart will discuss the rewards and pitfalls of investing in commercial property. He will share his experience of providing security solutions to owners of vacant properties. This will be held on Thursday 20th October, 14:00 – 14:45 in the Blue Room.
We will be holding a drinks reception at our stand K-13 from 4pm on Thursday 20th October so please do come along and join us.
MIPIM is an exciting forum for Global Guardians to share our knowledge and expertise of the property guardian sector, specifically how the sector can work to reverse negative perceptions and work towards promoting community cohesion and maximum ROI for property owners and asset managers.
