MIPIM 2019 is expected to be attended by over 26,000 participants and more than 5,400 investors.

This year's theme is "Engaging the Future" and the event will highlight global and societal topics impacting the real estate industry. The central theme will be explored by focusing on future economic growth, community cohesion and sustainability. Revenue streams in the real estate industry are rapidly evolving within the digital era. As a result, companies and investors are changing their approaches to real estate as an investment and product service.
