The sun was shining, the conference halls and stands in the Palais were full and the promenading along the Croisette was simply Magnifique.
The main MIPIM conference featured a strong focus on the future of sustainable cities. On Wednesday the organisers revealed 12 winners of the MIPIM Awards, a competition for completed or yet-to-be-built projects around the world. Congratulations to all the winners but a particular shout out to a UK winner, Roots in the Sky which won the best new development category.
At the annual Boules Competition set in the centre of Cannes, delegates crowded around the “boulodrome” and cried with excitement. A team featuring leading Companions tested opposing teams trying to chuck boules, but after a series of tense ends, they were pipped at the post and secured a cultured second place
But a real success has been renewed faith in Cannes Cannes Express Companionship. Our core values of community, experience and friendship have been on show throughout the week.
See you all soon…!
