MIPIM is well and truly in full swing on day two! The sun continues to drench the Cannes Pavillions, and worldwide property experts astound us with their plans and insight.
Top of the bill was Gary Neville's presentation on the St. Michael's development, to which he said, "we know we can't hide, we're not going to hide. The intent of this scheme from day one was driven by ourselves. Not by investors. Not by agents. Not by anybody else, other than the fact that through our own experience of travelling round the world with Manchester United, being very fortunate in going to world class cities, with world class hotels, and world class residential developments. We thought that Manchester needed a world class residential development."
After the presentation Alex caught up with renowned Manchester Architect Ian Simpson, who described Manchester's presence at Mipim as, "fabulous, you really feel as though Manchester can conquer the world".
