Illinois REALTORS® interested in global real estate can apply for one of 10, $1,500 stipends to attend what’s billed as the largest real estate conference of its kind in the world. MIPIM 2018 will be in Cannes, France, March 13-16. Here’s how to apply.
The deadline for submitting MIPIM stipend applications is Nov. 30. Winners will be judged on:
- demonstrated track record of participation in global real estate activities at the local, state or national association level;
- global real estate-related designations (i.e. – CCIM, CIPS, CRE, etc.); and
- experience with international real estate transactions.
But applying for the stipend is just part of the process. Members of the National Association of REALTORS® can get a discounted registration rate for MIPIM, and the registration code will be available soon from NAR. Once it is announced, the code will be available on the Illinois REALTORS® MIPIM page.
In the meantime, REALTORS® who want to attend MIPIM should start making hotel and plane reservations, and start the process of applying for a passport if they don’t already have one.
The annual conference on the French Riviera attracts more than 24,000 people who are engaged in all aspects of the real estate business. The conference features a massive trade show and the opportunity to meet with decision-makers from some of the world’s largest firms.
