Buoyed by a series of new investment in the region, the property market in the East Midlands is going from strength-to-strength.
Data from a recent Briefing Paper on regional and local economic growth statistics, the East Midlands was the quickest-growing economy outside of London and the South East between 2010-2014. There are indications that the economy in the region will grow further still.
The East Midlands will be represented at MIPIN, a property exhibition, conference and networking event gathering taking place between the 14-17th March. There will be ten Local Enterprise Partnership areas featured.
These regions will showcase over £14bn worth of projects and investment sites to the exhibitions 23,000 attendees, including potential investors and developers to property agents and the media.
Sir John Peace, chairman of the Midlands Engine, said: ‘The Midlands is coming together on an unprecedented scale at MIPIM to attract even more investment from around the world.’
The region’s presence at the event is being coordinated by inward investment agency Marketing Birmingham, alongside the Department for International Trade and partners such as Jaguar and East Midlands Airport.
Councillor Jon Collins, leader of Nottingham City Council, noted: ‘Considered to be the heartbeat of the nation’s economy, the Midlands will propel Nottingham-and other regional cities-into the world’s attention.’
‘We are happy to play a pivotal role by being part of the wider Midlands presence, showcasing Nottingham’s development opportunities. Being part of the wider offer will help to promote the region and therefore bring benefits to the city,’ he added.
