MIPIM Asia Summit Programme

Discover Asia Pacific inbound and outbound investment flows, regional development opportunities and projects, and retail real estate trends through a world-class programme of conferences and events. 

Engaging the future of the Asian Markets

In the context of the latest turmoil in Sino-US relations, rising interest rates and tighter yields, Asia’s real estate markets remain attractive, with the major economies in the region acting as magnets for institutional capital and the emerging markets showing good prospects.

Asian outbound property investment is being driven by the quest for enhanced yields and for diversification overseas. While activity has moderated, as Chinese buying slows, investors from Hong Kong, and from Singapore and South Korea, among other countries, remain active.

Despite the heterogeneity of Asia’s economies, the region is no exception to the ongoing shift towards property as a service, with the focus on the customer.

As part of a global trend, technology is increasingly acting as a catalyst for changing human behavior in Asia, leading to the opening up of new revenue streams. To reap the rewards of these changes, investors need to develop forward-thinking strategies.

MIPIM Asia Summit 2019 is ‘engaging’ the future of the Asian property markets, to envision local opportunities and enablers through the lens of ‘durability’ – opening the way for long-term economic growth, sustainable performance and community cohesion.

What are the new opportunities in the Asian markets? What are the most profitable long-term strategies for real estate players in the regions?

How can investors benefit by taking a sustainable approach to their investments?

How do the ongoing global shifts in the economy and in demographics impact the Asian markets?

Join the experts at MIPIM Asia Summit to envision the future of the Asian real estate markets!
