London at MIPIM
14 to 17 March 2023
Palais des Festivals, Cannes, France

Conferences and Events

Leading with innovation and action

Investment in people, place, technology, life sciences, and business is critical if cities are to reduce their contribution to climate change, recover from the fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic and ultimately, build a future that is socially, environmentally, and economically sustainable.

London is at the forefront of this agenda, harnessing record-breaking investment in technology to tackle critical urban problems and drive action through innovation, leading the globe’s decarbonisation agenda.

The UK’s capital is the world’s most advanced ecosystem for climate technology, home to 416 climate tech companies, the biggest cluster in Europe. The commitment to zero carbon by 2050 will inform all investment, development and design and requires action from the Mayor, businesses, communities, boroughs and national government.

London at MIPIM 2022 will bring together those who are investing in this future, both nationally and internationally, to explore London’s resilience and how climate ambitions are driving positive change and delivering economic benefit for all those who live, work and play in the city.

The past two years has highlighted what is important in cities and in communities. From housing and access to public space, transport and digital access to the unwavering demand for industrial space and essential logistics, to the continual ebb and flow in demands for retail and office space – London’s dynamism and adaptability has been and will be essential to a prosperous future.

Collaboration and action will underpin the London at MIPIM 2022 programme. The challenges and changes brought on by the pandemic will be tackled holistically in order to explore London’s future and bring together those who will build it.
