THE North-East will take centre stage at the UK’s largest property event this month as Invest North East England, the region’s inward investment group, showcases the area’s property development opportunities to more than 3,000 delegates including key investors and financial institutions at MIPIM UK.

Taking place in London from October 17 and 18, MIPIM UK is a chance for investors to learn about property development opportunities across the UK and meet with public and private sector partners involved in the projects. Invest North East England will be promoting some of the region’s most important developments, including Gateshead Quays; East Pilgrim Street in Newcastle; Milburngate in Durham and Vaux in Sunderland.

Joining them will be representatives from all seven of the local authorities and stand partners Newcastle International Airport, The Hanro Group, Naylors, Bradley Hall, Lambert Smith Hampton, Quorum Business Park, Highbridge Properties, Siglion and Ryder Architecture.

Guy Currey, director at Invest North East England, said: “The North-East is one of the best regions to invest in and delegates will discover the wealth of opportunities available as well as the enthusiasm and passion of the region’s private and public sector representatives.”

Investors visiting MIPIM UK will be introduced to key development sites including Durham City Park. They will also learn about opportunities at the region’s Enterprise Zones including Jade Business Park in Durham.
