HONG KONG, CHINA - Media OutReach - 27 September 2018 - World-renowned property summit MIPIM Asia 2018 will offer a glimpse into the cities of the future, with this year's event carrying the future-facing theme "Invest in a better tomorrow".
More than 900 property leaders from across the continent will gather to wonder how coming generations will live and work, at the leading industry event, taking place in Hong Kong on 27-28 November.
Inviting contributors to imagine the world in 2030, the conference agenda will present real estate professionals with valuable insights into hot topics including smart cities, sustainability and the blooming proptech boom -- as well as exploring retail trends and the ever-growing investment opportunities presented across the world's most populous continent.
Playing the joint roles of property expo, industry conference and networking summit, MIPIM Asia is a regional spin-off of the annual MIPIM summit, hosted in Cannes every March and established as the world's leading property market.
Following upcoming sister events including MIPIM UK (17-18 October) and MIPIM PropTech NYC (6 November), MIPIM Asia is organiser Reed MIDEM's last major global property show of the year.
"I'm thrilled to cap an incredible and innovative year with our trademark event celebrating the world's most dynamic continent -- MIPIM Asia," said MIPIM director Ronan Vaspart.
