Public and private sectors came together via SCC, Ben Gummer MP, Ipswich Central, the Chamber of Commerce, New Anglia LEP, the borough council and University Campus Suffolk, to attend MIPIM (Marche International des Professionals d'Immobilier) and promote development opportunities in the town. The show is the UK’s largest exhibition and conference for property professionals and will provide a market place for UK players and international investors to meet, discuss projects and opportunities and do business. The Ipswich stand, focusing on a new Ipswich Vision, enabled visitors to the exhibition to find out more about the town. The stand included a rolling video showing an animated fly round of the Waterfront plus images around Ipswich. An interactive screen allowed users to focus on individual sites and companies. A 20-page prospectus was also available to investors and developers.
We are both proud of, and ambitious for, our county town. Ipswich has so much going for it: good connectivity to the rest of the UK and proximity to London; national and international assets such as Adastral Park and Felixstowe Port on its doorstep; and a developing Waterfront with superb amenities. This was a great opportunity to promote all that our county town has to offer.
