Mipim 2022 took place from March 15-18, in Cannes, France and hosted the European Cities and Regions of the Future 2022/23 Awards Ceremony.
London is once again Europe’s most appealing investment destination
The awards are a great opportunity to discuss and recognise the most promising investment destinations across Europe, and signalled that European locations have proven a certain degree of resilience to the inevitable investment fallout of the pandemic.
Established in 1990, MIPIM is the real estate event to meet the most influential players from all sectors of the international real estate industry. It brings the entire value chain together and gives unrivalled access to the greatest number of development projects and sources of capital worldwide.
fDi Intelligence’s flagship European Cities and Regions of the Future 2022/23 study, which benchmarks the most promising investment destinations across Europe, showed that European locations have proven a certain degree of resilience to the inevitable investment fallout of the pandemic.

While London confirmed its investment appeal, competition from peers across the continent has intensified as the likes of Amsterdam, Dublin, Paris and Frankfurt were successful in intercepting some of the companies that relocated from the UK in the wake of Brexit, and Barcelona and Catalonia gained the favour of the judging panel for their investment promotion strategies.
As many as 356 cities were assessed and grouped by population size into five: major, large, mid-sized, small and micro cities. They were then ranked based on data collected across five subcategories: economic potential, business friendliness, connectivity, human capital and lifestyle, and cost effectiveness.
