Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands, March 19th, 2018 – Invest Turks and Caicos and partners returned from MIPIM following a successful four days of promoting the Turks and Caicos Islands at the world's leading international real estate business conference and networking event.
Held in Cannes, France (March 13th-16th) – the 2018 installment of MIPIM saw over 26,000 real estate, city and political leaders, including 5,400 investors from over 100 countries. Led by Invest Turks and Caicos Agency, the TCI delegation consisted of the Turks and Caicos Tourist Board, The Turks and Caicos Hotel and Tourism Association, Rock House Resort Turks and Caicos, Windward Development and Vista Development TCI. MIPIM was a great opportunity for Team TCI to present a unified voice to investors, industry partners and decision makers from international companies, from around the world.
Team TCI gained maximum exposure with a vibrant and attractive exhibit that was located in the Tourism and Hospitality Zone, and ran an activity of programmes which promoted investment opportunities in the Islands, as well as showcased our tourism industry, beautiful luxurious resorts and new developments in the country.
Acting CEO for Invest Turks and Caicos, Angela Musgrove stated, "Having attended MIPIM last year, we got a strong feeling that this is an event where investors are engaged, and relationships are formed. By having such a loud presence at this event, we sent the message that we are ready to engage and do business. We forged new relationships with potential developers, investors and industry partners. We also took advantage of every opportunity to make new connections with those involved in the related professional services."
"We hope to return to MIPIM in 2019", stated Vice President of Marketing and Promotion for Invest TCI, Trina Adams-Smith. "We want to have an even greater presence. Our aim is a bigger exhibition, a full programme of events, and a larger delegation of industry partnerships; all of which translates into new leads for the TCI."
Speaking of their partnership, Marketing Representative for the Turks and Caicos Tourist Board based in the UK, Courtney Robinson said: "The opportunity to showcase the destination to a diverse audience of high net worth stakeholders was immense. We were able to make some valued inroads with our tourism and investment product, one that only could be had at a global summit such as MIPIM." He went on to add: "Going forward, we will endeavor to galvanise every opportunity whereby we can impress upon those who not only travel to, but do business and/or reside in our 'Beautiful by Nature' country."
