Following an update from Reed MIDEM, organiser of MIPIM 2020, it has been confirmed that this year’s event has been postponed due to the potential impact of COVID-19, also known as coronavirus.

Reed MIDEM has been in regular consultation with professional bodies including the World Health Organisation, the French Government, the City of Cannes, Nice airport and hotel network, and has made the decision to postpone the event in light of these discussions.

The 2020 edition of MIPIM will now take place June 2-5 in Cannes.

An official statement from Reed MIDEM states:

“The well-being of our clients and staff is our priority. Given the evolving context, the best course of action is to postpone MIPIM to June,” said Reed MIDEM Chief Executive, Paul Zilk.

“This is not a decision we have taken lightly. We believe these new dates will provide the international MIPIM community with the opportunity to achieve their business objectives. We are grateful to our clients for their support and constructive input during this challenging period, and we look forward to talking with them in the coming days about MIPIM in June,” added Paul Zilk.
