EKPS partners with Place for MIPIM

Manchester-based planning consultancy Euan Kellie Property Solutions will utilise Place North West’s expertise and services to increase its exposure at the international property conference.

“For us, the [Place MIPIM] partnership package feels very much like having a ‘friendly arm around the shoulder’ and being part of a wider group of like-minded people with whom we can enjoy the MIPIM experience,” said Kelly Paddick, company director at EKPS.

She added later: “As a small business, we think there will be some positive opportunities which will provide us with great exposure which we might otherwise struggle to achieve by ourselves.

“We’re also keen to support Place North as a business which has grown over a similar period to our own, and with which we have a long-established working relationship,” she continued.

“Euan Kellie Property Solutions is a friendly, dynamic team and this approach to business and networking is well reflected by the Place North team and their associated brand.”

To that end, Place will host multiple socials during MIPIM, including an arrival reception and a breakfast. The Place boat will also return in 2024, providing an opportunity for high-quality networking while enjoying the Bay of Cannes.

EKPS company director Euan Kellie and director Ellie Philcox will be attending MIPIM on the planning consultancy’s behalf.

Paddick said the EKPS team was excited to attend MIPIM in March 2024.

“For us, MIPIM presents an opportunity to learn about and share information and experiences with fellow property professionals,” she said. “We hope that our attendance assists with the growth of both our network of contacts as well as industry knowledge.

“Of course, it also provides a launchpad for the latest developments and so we look forward to finding out what next year’s event will reveal!”

Dino Moutsopoulos, managing partner and head of commercial at Place North, welcomed EKPS to the Place MIPIM fold.

“I am very pleased that EKPS has chosen Place North West to help raise its profile and business development at MIPIM 2024,” he said.

“We have worked successfully over the years with EKPS in the North West and look forward to supporting Euan, Kelly, and Ellie and the team in Cannes.”

Place will be offering a dynamic list of services at MIPIM including a full suite of offline and online marketing opportunities such as thought-leadership editorial, video commentary, boat charters, introductions, and private dining.

Place MIPIM clients and partners include VM Group, Wardell Armstrong, Shoosmiths, Calderpeel, Together, Net Zero UK, Luma Marketing, Morgan Sindall Construction, JMW Solicitors, Project Four, Realty Management, and Marketing Manchester.
