InvestSK Showcases South Kesteven at National Property Expo

InvestSK, South Kesteven District Council’s economic growth and regeneration company, has exhibited at the UK’s leading property event, MIPIM UK, to showcase the district and the current development opportunities available.

The two-day event took place on 17 and 18 October at Olympia in London with more than 2,500 delegates attending. MIPIM is the largest domestic exhibition and conference for property professionals, providing a marketplace for UK players and international investors to meet, discuss projects and opportunities to do business.

InvestSK used its exhibition stand to promote South Kesteven and to showcase 300 acres of commercial development opportunities available across the district.

Steve Bowyer, chief executive of InvestSK said: “Exhibiting at MIPIM UK was the perfect chance to showcase South Kesteven to national property developers, agents and investors. South Kesteven has a fantastic business offer and this was the show to shout about it.

“We had some great conversations with potential investors and interested businesses which we’re already following up. The event was also a good opportunity for us to network with other local authority areas and to build our strategic partnerships more widely. South Kesteven is really getting on the radar.”

Councillor Matthew Lee, the Leader of South Kesteven District Council and Chairman of InvestSK, said: “I was delighted to join InvestSK at the MIPIM UK expo last week. I’ve set out a clear ambition to bring forward new development across South Kesteven and we need to work with a range of partners to accelerate that programme. Events like this are great for raising the district’s profile and I was particularly pleased to meet with so many private sector representatives.”
