MIPIM has become for Stepladder, very much one of the year's true diary 'markers' sitting comfortably in the calendar alongside other days of note; Christmas, Easter and family birthdays. Like all of these, MIPIM inevitably triggers a healthy eating and booze free few weeks thereafter - this year was no different.
Mixed in with countless trips up and down the Croisette, jostling for position near the 'bottle man' outside Roma and too much rich food, were this year, some very productive meetings. The London stand looked fantastic and my old fave Manchester, as ever, did an amazing job at being 'super cool'. Personal highlights were catching up with our friends at GPE, lunch with Colliers, impromptu beers with the delightful Brockton team and of course, DTZ CEO 'big John' and his (now famous) show stopping suit.
In summary, a sore head, worn out shoes and hopefully, some exciting new projects to discuss over the coming weeks. MIPIM… until next year.
