"MIPIM has always been an important event for Lincolnshire and one I feel we are capitalising on by forming one of our strongest teams yet and taking part in an important year when we take our place in the Midlands UK Pavilion. Our focus will be showcasing Greater Lincolnshire and promoting what our constantly evolving and innovative region has to offer.
"We feel that the Midlands UK Pavilion will present even more possibilities – as it will enable us to stand side by side with other regions in the East and West Midlands to compete on a global stage.
