Munich/Cannes, 03/03/2016

Allianz Real Estate is travelling with great expectations to MIPIM in Cannes this year for two reasons: On the one hand the chances seem good that the French real estate project „Laennec“ will be honored with the MIPIM-Award. And on the other hand the team around the new CEO François Trausch is looking forward to an interesting discussion about digital innovation in the real estate industry.

MIPIM has been a key exhibition, conference, networking and transaction event in the agendas of the world's top real estate players since 1990. With 21,500 delegates from 90 countries, including 4,800 investors meanwhile registered MIPIM continues to be the leading annual gathering of the world's real estate industry. Innovation and evolution as key driver of our time, fosters the central theme of the 2016 edition, "Housing the World."

Allianz Real Estate at MIPIM 2016

François Trausch being at the helm of Allianz Real Estate since beginning of the year comments: "For us MIPIM is one of the key industry events during the year: it provides the perfect platform not only for networking and to test the waters but also to further position ourselves as one of the leading global real estate investment and asset management companies and to set the ground for new deals in order to meet our investment targets in 2016."

Best chance to win the MIPIM-Award

After having been honored with the Special Jury Prize in the Best of SIMI awards some months ago Laennec - the prestigious development in the French real estate portfolio - has been nominated for the MIPIM Awards in the category, Best Refurbished Building. The historical property in Paris was renovated by the architect, Benjamin Mouton, who also led the renovation of the Notre-Dame cathedral or the Invalides in Paris and is rented at the luxury group, Kering. The result will become public at the Awards Ceremony on 17 March, 2016 at 18.30.

Panel shaped by the digitalisation

On March, 15th ARE has the pleasure to host the panel, "The digital innovation in real estate: focus on retail and office", putting the attention on how digital innovation at different stages, is constantly in the middle of the real estate discussion. It takes place in the Green Room of Innovation Forum starting at 17:00.

Introduced by a general overview regarding how digitalization is impacting the real estate environment, the talk has the further scope to examine the current innovation process in two different dimensions, retail and office, while focusing on the various stakeholders: landlords, tenants and consumers and the products and services involved. More in depth, the analysis will drive to understand how the retail innovations have changed the dynamics between consumers and retailers, and how the office spaces are rapidly changing its design rules to respond properly to users' needs.

"Our industry is facing a digital disruption and needs to anticipate tomorrow's uses. By hosting this panel we want to contribute and share our views, vision and ideas with the panelists and the audience. I am looking forward to a lively debate with the panelists out of real estate experts not only from the traditional but as well "new" world and to confront their visions and define the Real Estate 3.0", says François Trausch.
