Coventry and Warwickshire will have its strongest ever presence at the world’s largest property development and investment show this week.

A record number of companies have signed up to support and fund the area’s presence at MIPIM, which attracts around 30,000 delegates over its four days.

More than 25 firms from the property industry and other related sectors, along with local organisations, help fund the showcase which will see Coventry City Council, Warwickshire County Council, the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership (CWLEP) and private sector firms present the area’s development opportunities to an international audience.

Nick Abell, vice chairman of the CWLEP, said the strength of the delegation underlined current development across the area, and also investment potential.

“Coventry and Warwickshire has attracted record investment making us the most successful LEP area outside London and I think that is reflected in the presence at MIPIM,” he said.

“Not only do we have companies who have been in the partnership for many years, but also a string of new partners who are either active in our area or see the potential which lies in Coventry and Warwickshire and want to get involved in what has been an economic success story.

“We will be running and attending a string of targeted events to highlight the advantages in working with Coventry and Warwickshire and hopefully it will bring new opportunities for our partners.”
