Mipim 2020: Book your accommodation
From March 10 to 13, 2020, the 31st edition of MIPIM, the international market for real estate professionals, will take place at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes. This highly frequented event attracts more and more players in the sector every year, who sometimes struggle to find a place to stay because the city’s accommodation offer is quickly saturated. Fortunately, there are alternatives.
MIPIM: An essential event
This international event is undoubtedly the place to be for all professionals in the real estate sector. Whether they are promoters, investors, architects, hotel groups, etc., they all gather on 22,000m2 of exhibition space at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès de Cannes for 4 days. On the agenda: meetings, networking, partnerships and more than a hundred conferences given by experts. It is also an opportunity to discover the latest trends in the sector and innovative real estate projects from all over the world.
The 2019 edition, which had as its theme “Engaging the Future”, was resolutely forward-looking. Even if there is not yet much information on MIPIM 2020, according to the trailer of this upcoming edition, it seems that it is in line with the theme: “The Future is Human”.
Building on its success, the show attracted 26800 participants in 2019. A large audience, therefore, for a rather limited offer of accommodation in Cannes which sometimes leads to the need to find alternative solutions, but just as qualitative, to be able to find accommodation near the Palais des Festivals.
The interest of staying in an apartment during a business trip
A popular destination on the French Riviera, Cannes has around 130 hotels that unfortunately quickly sell out at major events such as the MIPIM. And this is already several months in advance. In addition, room rates, which are often exorbitant, force people to move away from the centre or even to opt for a neighbouring city, which inevitably includes longer travel times and the risk of getting stuck in traffic jams.
To remedy this limited and expensive offer, there are more economical solutions that are perfectly adapted to short stays. One of them is to stay in an apartment, an aparthotel or a villa. Magicstay, the first booking platform dedicated to business travel and mobility, offers thousands of accommodations of this type, adapted to all budgets and referenced according to their proximity to the exhibition centres and their comfort.
But price and a good location in the city are not the only interests. It is also a guarantee of freedom and independence. Indeed, by staying in a villa, an apartment or a serviced apartment, you are sure to find all the necessary comfort to feel at home, especially thanks to the kitchen which allows you not to depend on room service schedules or to have to leave your accommodation for dinner or not to meet a guest at the hotel restaurant when you just want to disconnect from your day. In addition, renting a large apartment or villa to accommodate several employees during a business trip also reduces costs while guaranteeing everyone privacy with one room per person. So don’t delay in booking your accommodation to attend MIPIM 2020 on Magicstay.com.
