Asia Figures Strongly At MIPIM 2013

Featuring successful CEOs and top executives, MIPIM Masterminds programme includes a session on Asia at 10:00 on March 12. Stuart M. GRANT, Senior Managing Director at The Blackstone Group, Kwon LEE, Managing Partner at Lee International IP & Law Group, David ROBERTS, CEO at Aedas Global, and François TRAUSCH, CEO, Asia Pacific at GE Capital Real Estate, will share their vision of the industry's evolution in the Asia-Pacific region in the next 12 months, respectively for China, Korea, Hong Kong and Japan.

The Japanese market will draw particular attention this year. A breakfast, held at the Majestic Hotel at 8:30 on March 12, will gather top leaders to discuss the adoption of the compact and smart concept, which the Japanese fund "Sustainable Urban Redevelopment Team" has developed to reconstruct the cities that were devastated by the earthquake and tsunami in 2011. Speakers include Edgar WALK, Chief Economist, Economic Research, at Metzler Asset Management GmbH, Yohei UEDA, Director at General Affairs Division, Land Economy and Construction and Engineering Industry Bureau, Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport & Tourism, and Prof. Yuichi FUKUKAWA, Architect & Urban Planner at Machizukuri Company Sheep Network.

A conference session at 14:30 on March 12 entitled "Opportunities, outlook and unique practices of real estate business in Japan" will highlight the measures taken by the new Japanese government and the consequent revival of occupiers and investors' interest in Japan. Thanks to the insightful expertise of Ryuhei MORI, Head of Global Marketing Department at XYMAX Corporation, and Yoshio NAKAYAMA, MAI, MRICS, CCIM, Director at XYMAX Real Estate Marketing Institute Corporation, the real estate management company will provide a briefing on the specificities of this complex market, which still presents major obstacles for foreign investors.

Asia will figure strongly on the MIPIM exhibiting floor, showcasing the major brokers in the region (CBRE, Cushman & Wakefield, DTZ, Jones Lang LaSalle); architects and planners like Aedas (HK), Osamu Morishita Architect & Associates ( Japan) and Sanjay Puri Architects ( India); investors such as Diamond Realty Management Inc. ( Japan), Mitsubishi Corporation ( Japan), GE Capital Real Estate ( Japan), Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank ( Japan) and Pramerica Real Estate Investors Limited ( Singapore); as well as end-users and occupiers like Morgan Stanley & Co International PLC ( Singapore).

The MIPIM Awards competition will also promote the dynamism of Asia, with eight projects representing the region, out of the 36 which were selected by the international jury. South Korea features three projects, in the Best Industrial & Logistics Development, Best Refurbished Building and Best Shopping Centre categories. China also emerges from the selection, with the Nanjing River West Central Business District, in the Best Futura Project category, and the National Creative Cluster in Beijing, in the Best Futura Mega Project category. In the Best Shopping Centre category, only one project out of the four finalists is not Asian, the other two being located in Singapore and Japan. "When you look across the range and quality of projects put forward for this year's competition, we are pleased that our project, Shibuya Hikarie, has been nominated as finalist for 2013 MIPIM Awards," notes Mitsuo Nakamura, Chairman of the Board of Directors at Nikken Sekkei, the architectural design firm which designed the project in Tokyo. "We are proud to have created a new landmark in the city despite the complexities posed by urban planning and proximity to railway lines."

MIPIM will also be the occasion to get further insight into the 2013 edition of MIPIM Asia, the world's property summit in Asia Pacific, which will take place in November 5-6 in the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Hong Kong. Filippo Rean, Director of MIPIM and MIPIM Asia, points out: "MIPIM Asia Summit gathers the leading real estate professionals operating within the region or seeking to work internationally with Asia Pacific players, offering them the perfect platform to improve their business through top-level conferences and business-focused networking." The 7 th edition of the prestigious MIPIM Asia Awards competition will provide another opportunity to showcase the dynamism of the Asian property market.
