Partner Update #8

Dear Partner,

Further to our communication over the weekend, you will now be aware that MIPIM has been postponed until 2-5 June 2020.

We are acutely aware that this has raised a lot of questions for the Partnership and the MIPIM delivery team at Marketing Manchester is currently dealing with the important task of mitigating the impact of postponement.

As you can imagine, there is a lot to unpick and many moving parts to consider; however, as we work through the implications of a possible transition to June, we want to keep an open dialogue with all our partners.

We are aware that many of you will also be working through practicalities of the new date, as are we.

The success of Manchester at MIPIM and profile achieved at the event is dependent on the participation of Manchester’s private sector; therefore, we would like to gauge the level of support for attendance in June by completing this form.

In the meantime, we have compiled some practical advice with regards to some of the questions you might have.

Thank you for your patience.

Q: What should we do about accommodation bookings?

We are currently in contact with the accommodation providers for MIPIM and are waiting on their response. If you have booked accommodation through Marketing Manchester, we will communicate any updates with you as soon as we can. If you have booked accommodation through an external provider and this has not been arranged through Marketing Manchester, please contact your provider directly regarding next steps.

Q: What should we do about flights?

If you have booked the “Manchester Flight” as profiled by us in previous communications departing Monday 9 March and returning Friday 13 March, please note that this flight will not automatically be transferred to the June dates. Please contact the airline directly regarding next steps. If you have booked flights through an any other operator, please contact your provider directly.

Q: What happens to delegate passes?

All delegate passes will be transferred over to the new dates of 2nd - 5th June.

Q: Can my organisation get a refund?

Following notification of the postponement on Saturday, 29 February 2020 please see Manchester at MIPIM terms and conditions for further details here.
