Invest in Tuscany, together with the Municipality of Florence and the Guasticce freight village, has completed with great satisfaction four days at the MIPIM, the leading international show devoted to the real estate sector (held in Cannes from 14 to 17 March 2017). During the show, Invest in Tuscany held more than thirty meetings with potential investors, many of which presented characteristics ideal to moving forward with settlement proposals. Potential investors were particularly interested in the integrated offer of real estate owned by the Tuscany Region and the opportunity to invest in the Amerigo Vespucci  freight village. The potential of the Port of Livorno as a European seaport and commercial port was highlighted repeatedly. Presence at the Italia Pavillon and interaction with the Municipality of Florence and the Guasticce freight village was a winning combination.

Types of investor encountered in Cannes:

  • Companies active in hotel design, development and management
  • International investment funds
  • Real estate developers and development project managers

During the fair, the Tuscany Region, represented by its dedicated Invest in Tuscany office – was awarded the best investment attraction slogan by fDi Stategy Awards 2016-2017 for the claim “Tuscany, for Centuries in the Future”.
