Engaging the Future of Asian Markets

MIPIM Asia delivers insight on investment trends and enhances industry players’ economic advantage in a shifting global market

 

HONG KONG, CHINA - Media OutReach - 22 November 2019 - "Engaging the future of Asian markets" will be the overarching theme for
the two-day MIPIM Asia Summit, providing real estate leaders operating in the
region with an all-encompassing perspective on major industry trends.

 

Robust
economic growth and an influx of capital have expedited the growth of Asian
markets. Although the Sino-American trade situation has dampened market
sentiment, the Asia region continues to show a promising future in the real
estate and property technology sectors. The highly anticipated two-day property
summit takes place November 26-27 at Hong Kong SAR's Grand Hyatt.

 

MIPIM Asia aims
to impart industry knowledge to help businesses deploy effective investment
tactics in the real estate sector in Asia. The summit will also be hosting a "Meet
the Chairmen" event with key luminaries of the Asian property industry -- namely
Justin Chiu, Executive Director of CK Asset Holdings Limited, Kenneth
Gaw
, President & Managing Principal of Gaw Capital Partners,
Marie-Célle Guillaume
, CEO of Paris La Défense, George
Hongchoy
, Executive Director and CEO of Link Asset Management, Francois
Trausch
, Global CEO of Allianz Real Estate and Andrew Weir, Global Head
of Asset Management at KPMG. These thought leaders will examine long-term
economic growth, sustainable performance and creating community cohesion. 

 

The summit
will kick off with keynote by Dr Y.K. Pang, Chairman of the Hong Kong
Tourism Board. A panel with Chris Chow, managing
director of LaSalle Investment Management, Laurent Fischler, Vice
President of Ivanhoe Cambridge and Laurent Jacquemin, Head of
Asia- Pacific Real Assets of AXA IM will follow and focuses on dissecting the macro-economy
and highlighting investment insights and trends from a global perspective.

 

Amongst the
many thought-provoking panel discussions and speaker sessions, a topic based
luncheon will take place on the second day of the event that allows
participants to exchange best practices and ideas. It is an opportunity to
network in a convivial and informal environment and to create open dialogue
between industry professionals. Nadira Lamrad, Assistant Director
at Business Environment Council, will also delve into the risks and
opportunities facing the real estate sector, brought on by climate change.

 

MIPIM Asia will bring together international
delegates offering a global perspective on the current real estate market. Paris
La Défense along with its CEO, Marie-Célle
Guillaume, will present a business showcase on the attractiveness and potential
opportunities in the Paris business sector suburb as a prime location for
international property investment as well as a new lifestyle destination. There
will be a substantial number of delegates representing the UK. Amongst the
heavyweight attendees from the UK are Andy Street, Mayor of the
West Midlands and Ian Ward, Leader of
Birmingham City Council, who will explore outbound investment from Asia to the
UK and discuss how investors can increase their portfolio value.

 

Closely aligning
with the current trend, this year's summit includes a MIPIM PropTech day
of conferences, which will be held at the Grand Hyatt on 27 November.
The event aims to power the digital transformation of the real estate industry
with the theme of "Matching User Expectations" this year.

 

The topic will
explore the needs of a user as a citizen and as an occupier of a building. Industry
leaders such as Aaron Block, Co-founder and Managing Partner of
MetaProp.vc, Jonathan Hannam, Managing Partner from Taronga Ventures, Eric
Cheah
, Head of Investment Management Asia Pacific of Union Investment Real
Estate, Antonio Hang Tat Chan, Vice Chairman of King Wai Group, James
Fisher
, COO & Director of Market Analysis and Analytics of Spacious.hk
, Andrew Young, Associate Director of Sino Group, Adrian Lai,
Chief Executive Officer of Liquefy Limited and Asif Ghafoor, CEO and

narrative for PropTech regionally and globally. The event will close with an

Partnership and Growth from WeWork.
