Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council recently returned from a very successful three-day exhibition at MIPIM UK, the largest UK exhibition and conference for property professionals, showcasing the area as a prime investment location to a wide audience of developers, investors and other interested agencies.
Amongst presentations by many other UK Cities the Council’s stand with the theme ‘Lisburn & Castlereagh City, the missing piece’ attracted significant interest in the City area and potential investment opportunities.
Supporting the Lisburn & Castlereagh presence at MIPIM was Lagan Valley MP, Jeffrey Donaldson. “The fact that we are the only location in Northern Ireland exhibiting at this major property exhibition is evidence of how committed the Council is about attracting inward investment to the area, creating jobs and growing the local economy,” said mr Donaldson.
Chairman of the Council’s Development Committee, Alderman Allan Ewart, added: “Our attendance at MIPIM has been well received. We have met several potential investors that are interested in having a presence in our City area including hotel, retail and office developments and we have had good productive conversations.”
