Event roundup: October and November 2014


At Granger Reis, we fundamentally believe that to do the best job for our clients, we need to keep up to date with all that’s happening in our industries. That means attending the events that industry leaders go to – and October and November saw plenty of those.

A number of individuals from our Property & Construction practice attended October’s Construction News Summit in London, which was then followed by a dinner hosted by Richard Milsom (MD) and Edward McQuilton (Director Property & Construction Practice) at Scalini’s restaurant for a select number of clients and friends. A fantastic night was had by all, after an insightful and interesting day at the conference.

That same month, we also headed to MIPIM London, the first MIPIM event in the UK. Our three representatives spent two full days (and evenings!) at MIPIM and reported back very positively, finding the event extremely well attended, and a particularly valuable experience in regards to discussing current industry trends and topics, meeting existing contacts and networking with new.

On an international level, Richard Milsom and Lucy Kendall (Director of People and Client Development) spent three days in Dubai at the CityScape conference, further developing our knowledge and contacts within the Middle East, and exploring international opportunities. Richard and Lucy also recently supported and attended the 8th IOD Women in Business conference. Alongside 200 attendees, they listened to a wide range of interesting and inspiring businesswomen sharing their experiences and views of women in the boardroom and their career journeys. The event provided valuable food for thought for our own Women’s Forum, and is scheduled into our 2015 diary.

We are already planning our events and conferences schedule for quarter one 2015, and look forward to many more insightful events.
