VM Finance at MIPIM 2024

It’s March and that means across the property and real estate industry, MIPIM is on everyone’s mind. From the 12th to the 14th of March, professionals from across the globe will be descending on the French Riviera, learning, networking and making deals.  

For VM Finance, it was our first time at MIPIM last year and we’re looking forward to MIPIM 2024 and all the opportunities it has to offer, for us and our clients. 

We thought it would be a good idea to let you know why we’re attending and what we’re looking forward to. As you know, VM Finance is steadfast in its commitment to customer focus and a tailor-made service. This is at the forefront of our minds as we approach MIPIM and guides much of what we’re looking to achieve at the conference.

Let’s dig into the details and outline some of our aims at MIPIM 2024.

A deepening awareness of the VM Finance brand

Since MIPIM last year, we’ve made some great strides in deepening the awareness of our brand and our offering. This year we’re looking to build on that success, speak to more people and tell them exactly why we’re different and how we can help them reach their vision.

And it’s not just developers we want to speak to, we’re open to the whole MIPIM experience and will be looking to speak to all with something interesting to say. As we learned last year, MIPIM is all about connections, conversations and that fabled MIPIM magic. That magic is the productive conversations that can occur in the most unexpected of spaces. 

Continue to grow our knowledge of Manchester and the North West

We’ve really valued our time getting to know the ‘new to us’ market of Manchester and the North West. This year we’ll continue to grow our knowledge and relationships in that region by working closely with Place North West. Manchester isn’t slowing down in its path towards becoming a global city and we’re keen to be a part of the growth.

To make good on that commitment, we’re going to soak up all the knowledge we can about the plans for Manchester, engaging with the Manchester stand and visiting attendees from the region. This learning will enable us to serve our Manchester clients to the high standard we expect of the VM Finance brand.

Keeping up to date with the economic outlook 

We always keep our ear to the ground on the economic outlook for the UK and Global economies. Only when equipped with this knowledge can we provide the tailored guidance and support we’re known for to our clients. 

With many items on the conference agenda about the economy (not to mention the many global economists in attendance), we’ll be listening and taking note of everything there is to learn, taking the insights back to the UK with us to better advise our clients.

Understanding what the market and our clients are talking about

This is what it all comes down to. Ultimately, the biggest benefit of MIPIM is the chance it gives us to tap into the market and really understand what everyone is talking about. To go a little deeper, it’s an opportunity for us to understand what challenges and opportunities are out there and how we can address/capitalise on them.

Essentially it’s all about arming ourselves with the knowledge needed to continue delivering our customer-focussed approach that gives power to our clients, helping them achieve their vision and property goals.
