Morgan Sindall supports UK plc on the global stage

Morgan Sindall is currently at MIPIM 2017, the world’s largest property conference, which is taking place in Cannes, France this week.

The event attracts around 25,000 professionals from the property industry, including investors, developers, local authorities and journalists. Cities and regions use it as a showcase to attract backing from institutional investors and funders.

The UK’s new Department for International Trade has a major presence at the event to show Britain is still open for business, despite the pending exit from the EU.

The Morgan Sindall team in Cannes is led by chief executive John Morgan. Several leaders from within Morgan Sindall’s construction business are also attending, including Sean Bowles and Sean Bradley, managing directors from the Central and London regions respectively, along with Richard Fielding, Barry Roberts, Richard Dobbs, Richard Dobson, Scott Wilson, Stuart Parker, Ray McAuley and Emma Tynan.

Morgan Sindall has backed the Midlands UK MIPIM campaign, one of the regions stepping up its profile. Last year the region set out its stall to win £14 billion from global investors as part of its plan to turn itself into one of the world’s leading regional economies. At MIPIM 2017, the Midlands UK is led by senior public figures from the East and West Midlands and has increased its attendance and presented projects aimed at accelerating economic growth and attracting investment to the region.

Morgan Sindall’s Central managing director, Sean Bowles, took part in the first event held in a new Midlands pavilion. The event focused on Derby and featured a wide ranging panel debate involving Lindsay McCombe from Gleeds, Melanie Leech from the British Property Federation and David Williams of the Derby Renaissance Board.

As an example of large scale regeneration and place-making, Sean Bowles talked a packed audience through Morgan Sindall’s involvement in Slough where Morgan Sindall Group plc’s investment division Morgan Sindall Investments Limited is working with Slough Borough Council’s Local Asset Backed Vehicle joint venture.
