Nottingham constructs its biggest ever team in build-up to MIPIM 2015

Nottingham’s biggest-ever delegation will travel to MIPIM in March with the city economy at a “crucial point”.

 More than 20 businesses and organisations will join forces with Nottingham City Council to sell the city at the event in France – the biggest gathering of major developers and investors in Europe.

 The city council pulled out of the event when recession struck, but returned officially last year with the businesses who kept the city’s flag flying under the Team Nottingham banner.

 They will return to MIPIM on 10 March, with the council joined by a team which includes property developers, construction companies, surveyors, architects and civil engineers.

 Ian Curryer, the council’s chief executive, will be part of the delegation. 

He said: “With millions of pounds of investment having been ploughed into our transport infrastructure, Nottingham is at a crucial point in terms of reaching its huge potential by attracting more investment to the city

“We are determined to make the most of these opportunities in a targeted way, and encourage investment in the city. MIPIM gives us a unique chance to speak to developers and investors from across the UK and the globe about opportunities in Nottingham.”

While it can sometimes take years for contact made at MIPIM to translate into deals or buildings, the city says it came away from the 2014 event with “20 strong leads”.

While Nottingham and Derby will have a separate presence outside the exhibition hall in Cannes, they will join forces with local enterprise partnership D2N2 to market the area at a shared stand.

Among the new Team Nottingham members this year is property developer Robert Monk, whose Mortar developments business has been behind a number of prominent city buildings.

He said: “The fact that we have the largest line-up to date is testament to the passion and drive of the public and private sector in the city.”

Also joining the Nottingham delegation for the first time is Mark Deakin, of project management firm Turner & Townsend.

He said: “Collaboration is key between the public and private sector. It is vital that we work together for the good of the city.”

Tim Garratt, the managing director of Innes England, who has been involved with the organisation of Team Nottingham for several years, said: “Over the past few years, Nottingham has succeeded in establishing a recognisable presence there, and it is vital that we keep this momentum going.”

The team for 2015 comprises Nottingham City Council, Invest in Nottingham, Nottingham Means Business, Nottingham Regeneration Limited, Cartwright Communications, Couch Perry Wilkes, CPMG Architects, Gleeds, Morgan Tucker, FHP, RizkMcCay, Geldards, Miller Birch, Scape, Curtins, Willmott Dixon, RH Developments, Mortar Developments, Turner & Townsend and G F Tomlinson.
