    Major international bodies such as the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) will also be represented among the 2,000 delegates, setting the stage for the launch of the region’s premier real estate event in one of the world’s hottest property markets.

    During two days of expert-led conferences, targeted networking events, and exhibitions at the Prince Park Hotel Tokyo on May 20 and 21, MIPIM Japan will provide a forum for international stakeholders to source capital or new opportunities in Japan and for Japanese real estate professionals to share their projects and expertise with the world. The event brings together property and finance professionals from all asset classes—office, retail, infrastructure, leisure, residential—under the four central themes of The Olympics, Inbound and Outbound Investment, Innovative Cities, and Tourism. There will be more than 20 sessions on inbound & outbound investment, and a 1,000m² exhibition area showcasing projects and solutions from the world’s top real estate developers.

    A statement from Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) said, “MLIT is very pleased to support the launch of MIPIM Japan in May 2015 in Tokyo. MIPIM Japan will be an outstanding opportunity to promote the Japanese real estate market. We are looking forward to welcoming real estate professionals from around the world willing to invest or source investment in Japan and learn from the innovative solutions Japan has implemented in regards to smart cities, sustainable architecture, and construction.”

    The MIPIM Japan programme includes a notable line up of speakers from Japan and around the world, with the opening keynote delivered by Hiromichi Iwasa, Chairman and CEO of Mitsui Fudosan. Among the international speakers will be former Mayor of London Ken Livingstone, whose presentation, Global events legacy: International Cities share past experience & learnings, is particularly timely as Japan makes preparations for the 2020 Olympics and seeks to create a positive legacy of urban revitalization after the Games close.

    Stockholm Business Region CEO Olle Zetterberg’s speech on Business tourism attractiveness is also expected to draw considerable interest as Japan continues to roll out programs to attract foreign tourists, having achieved its goal of 10 million inbound visitors for the first time ever in 2013.
