Over the weekend a delegation of students and faculty from the Wisconsin School of Business Real Estate Program arrived in Cannes, ready and eager to attend the international property conference MIPIM.
The Wisconsin Real Estate Program has a long history at MIPIM. This is the students' sixth annual trip to the event, participation is actually part of the MBA curriculum. The faculty chairman François Ortalo-Magné has delivered the wrap-up keynote several times at MIPIM--and at MIPIM Asia and MAPIC as well. He is on the 2011 schedule on Friday morning at 10:00 (local time).
As in years past, we will be blogging from the event. Students will be reporting key takeaways from the main sessions and keynotes on the program. We will also be working with the conference organizers on their new blog.
So come back to the blog for in-depth coverage of MIPIM 2011!
And in preparation for tomorrow's conference kick-off, take a look at our coverage from previous shows. How do you think the mood and outlook will be different this year?
