What a Week at MIPIM 2016
Team Smallman arrived back in the UK after an extremely successful week at MIPIM 2016 alongside twenty-plus Leicester firms and organisations making up Team Leicestershire.
When MIPIM’s doors opened, Team Smallman & Son really was ready to get set and go! Being at MIPIM was an amazing experience and gave us all a chance to play our part and network on the Property and Construction world stage. With our goody bags at the ready, it was go, go, go.
We began our week with BSD’s cheese and wine party, meeting new contacts and enjoying the company of our current clients too. It was also great fun being invited to the MIPIM UK Networking Event on the beach – that was definitely a first for us! From a networking event at Cafe Roma to dinner with MDA, we enjoyed the most fantastic hospitality with great people and hope this will be start of some new business relationships for us.
Wednesday 16 March saw us at the first event of the day, a business breakfast and presentation with our colleagues from the Midlands – Team Derby. On Thursday 17, we hosted our first lunch with business colleagues RG+P, MDA, Pick Everard and BSD.
The wind and rain then swept into Cannes but it certainly didn’t stop play, starting the day with a sausage brunch with Team Lincolnshire. Warmed up and dried out, we then hosted our second Team Smallman event of the week, at lunchtime on the beach and the weather started looking up. Once the sun came up, we all enjoyed ourselves, meeting yet more new faces. Next stop was Coventry and Warwickshire Networking Event by the pool followed by Collaborative working! RG+p and Team Smallman dining in Cannes, as guests of Pygott & Crone.
Well done Team Smallman. What a week that was – great fun, great people and a great event overall. We wouldn’t have missed it for the world!
