MIPIM 2019: Steve Dazzles in Cannes
Steve had a fantastic time attending MIPIM 2019 in Cannes recently.
The renowned three-day property event brings together professionals from all over the globe for keynote speeches, networking opportunities, and more. This year’s event was extra special, as MIPIM marked its 30th anniversary. Steve loves the energy and vibrancy of Cannes, and has become a familiarly colourful figure among MIPIM attendees.
A standout year
Standout moments from Steve’s time at MIPIM included breakfast with Bob Weston and his team from Weston Homes, following our success working on their rebrand and new websites, and a drinks soiree to celebrate construction company Sir Robert McAlpine reaching its 150th year, a milestone anniversary which we branded.
He also enjoyed lunch hosted by our clients Gately PLC, a fabulous dinner party with Kevin Taylor from the McLaren group aboard his boat “Thumper”, and a great lunch at the Mandala with the team from Stace. In addition, he attended a drinks reception by James Andrew International, following Paul Turton’s generous invitation.
An extra special highlight was the dinner hosted by Orsa at La Colombe d’Or, the world famous restaurant whose famous patrons include such luminaries as Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso. The restaurant displays their artwork on its walls, creating a truly remarkable dining experience, and Steve relished every moment.
“MIPIM just keeps getting better and better! I had a fabulous trip. It’s always such a treat to bump into people you haven’t seen in a while, especially old clients. For me, MIPIM is all about people; I love meeting old friends, new friends, and people I haven’t met before. Happy 30th anniversary MIPIM – I’m looking forward to the 100th!”
MIPIM 2019 also marked an exciting milestone for Steve on a personal level. Famed for his bold style choices and his mantra “dress for a party every day and the party will come to you”, Steve’s excited to be launching his own fashion label and wore some of the prototypes during MIPIM.
