This year IFHP will be present again at MIPIM, promoting ‘Housing for All’ by hosting a panel debate about how to build the best quality housing for the greatest number of people. If you are in Cannes, you are welcome to join the discussion.
MIPIM, the world’s leading property market, brings together the most influential players from all international property sectors - office, residential, retail, healthcare, sport, logistics and industrial, offering unrivalled access to the greatest number of development projects and sources of capital worldwide. The 28th edition of this event will be held in Cannes, France from 14-17 March 2017. 

IFHP side event 

Our CEO Anette Galskjøt will represent the IFHP and will be the moderator of a panel session entitled: How to build the best quality housing for the greatest number of people?, which we co-organised with the Holland Metropole and the municipality of Copenhagen. 
With ever more people living in urban areas, many cities are becoming overcrowded and too expensive. How do we live now? What are the new ways of living in cities? This session explores new types of housing- more flexible, more affordable or more collaborative - and how they adapt to today’s reality.

The program: 

  • Introduction
Bob van der Zande (Director Residential Markets, City of Amsterdam)
  • How the sharing economy is disrupting the way we live
Alsino Skowronnek (Studio Karat Berlin) and Irma van Oort (KCAP Architects&Planners)
  • The investor’s perspective – opportunity or threat?
Henk Jagersma (CEO Syntrus Achmea Real Estate & Finance, Chair of the Dutch Federation of Institutional Investors IVBN)
  • The tale of two attractive cities
Interview with Morten Kabell (Mayor of Technical and Environmental Affairs of Copenhagen) and Eric van der Burg (Deputy Mayor City Development, City of Amsterdam)
  • Debate with the audience and panel
  • Join us for drinks at the Holland Metropole Pavilion (C19.E)
