First Day In:
MIPIM 2017 is the third year running for CSB Logistics. Our first trip – very much a scouting operation – was a real eye-opener. Working on advice from seasoned MIPIM-ites we just booked flights and accommodation, relying purely on networking outside ‘The Bunker’ at the usual hangouts like Café Roma. While we had many worthwhile meetings around town, some good fortune landed us with two passes into MIPIM – ever thankful to our good friends who know who they are.
From then on we realised that CSB Logistics needed to be seen as part of the London Stand and the following year we booked as exhibitors. The experience of the last two years has set us up ready to make this year our best yet. Even the weather is looking great which is a welcome change to the cold and rain of 2016.
We will obviously be connecting with those in the industry that have an interest in London’s construction logistics. But I guess Brexit will be a key topic of discussion for everyone and it will be interesting to see what the general mood is on that. From what we could sense from last night, there is bigger and better buzz than last year.
