Busy Busy Busy at MIPIM

Just to demonstrate the importance of attending the MIPIM jolly conference in Cannes the 'Post' has an article by a local businessman reporting on his experiences there.

It's full of details of the vital international contacts he made there including leads from Derby, Birmingham, the North East and, erm Coventry. What exotica.

He also can't help himself telling us about hobnobbing with the likes of Boris Johnson and Lord Faulkener.

At the end he gushes -

"Where else would I rub shoulders with city leaders and heads of major companies, have lunch with a Lord, be interviewed by national newspapers and magazines and raise the profile of my company in front of a diverse audience of potential clients from across the world... on a yacht?"

Er, London?

It seems that NCC is finally coming the conclusion that MIPIM isn't that vital after all, this was the last year they are going.

Heh!

You kind of get the feeling that the emphasis here is on "lunch" and "on a yacht" don't you?
