Andy Jansons MIPIM Jansons Property

MIPIM WAS A SUCCESS

Those who are courageous enough to take on a career in the property market know MIPIM Cannes as the world’s leading property exhibition. Judging from all the social media posts covering the event one might better describe the event as the epicentre of the international property industry. What other occasions would you find thousands of industry investors, architects and professionals converging in one location. Amongst those investor/developer types was Jansons Property’s Managing Director Andy Jansons. Since we are currently acquiring mixed-use, strategic land as well as income producing assets with development potential. MIPIM offered an opportunity for Andy to meet a plethora of interesting individuals with those land offers as well as interesting perspectives on the UK market and post-brexit landscape!

The programme for MIPIM was littered with networking opportunities alongside fundraising events each with their own unique cause. Andy took part in the MIPIM Tennis Classic 2019 (image above), a tennis event sponsored by Neil Shiner (director of Evolve Consulting Engineers Ltd). As if the great weather did not offer enough bragging rights, Andy was paired
Tim Henman OBE to take on Neil and Danny Sapsford (former professional tennis player). Although Andy did not bring home the tennis classic win, MIPIM sent him back with a wealth of information that can only bolster the strategies for Jansons Property in 2019. Every year MIPIM aims to facilitate business between a multitude of real estate professionals, this year was no exception.

Interesting Conversation At The Wycombe Social

The Wycombe Social was an excellent opportunity to understand the professionals and opportunities in High Wycombe . It seems there has been a less than ideal perspective cast on the High Wycombe area. The Wycombe social served as prompt to discuss particular unsung accolades about High Wycombe while taking the opportunity to shed light on areas of improvement.

The event began with various beverages alongside a serving of obligatory networking. This was followed by a warm welcome from Hiren Gandhi, a partner at our host Blaser Mills. Matthew Battle (UK Property Forums Managing Director) went on to give an enthusiastic introductory speech setting the scene for Andy Jansons (Janson Property Managing Director). Andy provided an informative overview of various markets in the Thames Valley while taking the opportunity to question the recent growth of serviced operators and discussing the slow office Market in High Wycombe. He stated, “I think there is just this dour perception of Wycombe from a business perspective”. Andy emphasised further by highlighting the fact High Wycombe does not appear on occupiers’ lists. A solution soon followed using Aylesbury’s investment into their public realm as an example.

Andy’s controversial perspective on High Wycombe was a fitting segway into a panel discussion alongside Michael Garvey (Managing Director of Chandler Garvey), Jonathan Lilley (Managing Partner at Blaser Mills) and Charles Brocklehurst (Head Of Housing and Environment, Wycombe District Council). The final section of the event saw the launch of the BucksPropFest, a festival dedicated to celebrating the value of property across the area of Buckinghamshire. The festival will take place on 6th June with an award ceremony at the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre.

In the end, the Wycombe Social was a great opportunity to understand the ongoings in High Wycombe as well as form new relationships. We look forward to the BuckPropFest!
