What's MIPIM?

Billed as one of the largest real estate conferences in the world, the annual conference on the French Riviera attracts more than 24,000 people engaged in all aspects of the real estate business. The conference features a massive trade show and the opportunity to meet with decision-makers from some of the world's largest firms. 

Prepare now

The key to going in March is to plan ahead.

Register for the event: National Association of REALTORS® members will get a discounted rate. The registration code will be available shortly from NAR. Applicants will be alerted when this discount is ready, or you can check back on this page for details. 

Make your reservations: Planning now will save time and money later. 

  • Accommodations: Cannes is not a large city, so the influx of thousands of people means hotels fill up quickly. Accommodations can be found through traditional booking sites or an apartment-share website. Because of demand and cost, members may want to consider booking accommodations in Nice, France, which is about 30-45 minutes away. 
  • Travel: The nearest airport is in Nice, although it is possible to fly into Paris and take a train to Cannes.
  • Passport: You don't need a visa to travel to France, but you will need a passport. Make sure your passport is within at least six months of it's expiration date to avoid hassles at entry.
