Meet ECN at MIPIM Cannes, 2017

10 March 2017

The world’s leading real estate exhibition MIPIM opens its doors once again in Cannes next week. Around 23,000 participants from all sectors of the real estate economy are expected this year including the UK and Europe’s leading digital office platform provider – Executive Channel Network (ECN) (

This year’s MIPIM theme focuses on the “new deal for real estate”, in which several trends come together. Global population growth is soon forecast to reach 8.3 billion people, forcing many urban planning challenges. The geopolitical effects of Brexit, Trump and elections in France and Germany are adding further uncertainty at a time when technology is disrupting all parts of society including commercial office real estate.

Executive Channel Network’s (ECN), UK staff in attendance at MIPIM includes Jo Morris, Director of Asset Development. ECN was founded in Asia Pacific in 2005, and expanded quickly into the UK, France and now Germany.  ECN’s smart digital office network is installed in over 150 office buildings in Central London. ECN’s smart digital screen technology connects building managers and occupiers with the latest local news and internal communications, and ECN’s own research highlights that 78% of tenants want to be kept informed by their building owners/managers.

In addition to the approximately 23,000 participants, MIPIM Cannes is hosting 2,600 exhibiting companies, no less than 3,800 CEOs and more than 5,000 investors. Thus, the most influential experts in the real estate industry, including specialists meet at MIPIM for a comprehensive overview on the latest trends in the real estate industry – and of course for networking opportunities.
