Welcome to The Collaboratory

Susan Freeman
Partner, Mishcon de Reya

Collaboration is absolutely the life blood of the property industry.  This year is all about collaboration for Mishcon and what better collaboration could you have than co-hosting with New West End Company and UKTI Regeneration Investment Organisation.

Jace Tyrrell
CEO, New West End Company

Mishcon are an excellent global law firm, they have fantastic connections to the real estate market, the investment market, to retail.  It works perfectly and we are all about collaboration, so are they so we are delighted to work with Mishcon de Reya tonight and co-host one of the best parties in London ahead of MIPIM.

Nick Doffman
Head of Real Estate, Mishcon de Reya

It is important for us to create an environment for clients to come together, network, collaborate to promote their transactions and to promote business generally.

Daniel Van Gelder
Chairman, Westminster Property Association

Mishcon de Reya really understand what real estate means and what we need from real estate advisors.  They get what we do and that makes our lives so much easier.

Gary Yardley
Investment Director, Capital & Counties

Mishcon is a fantastic business.  We have worked with them for many years now.  We always find it really helpful that they come up with new ideas , new suggestions, new ways of working – all the things we need from our advisors to tell us what can really make a difference.

Sir Michael Bear
Chairman, UKTI Regeneration Investment Organisation

This is the time of year where just before MIPIM where we hope to meet some of the major players in our industry and having a warm-up event like this is absolutely unique and transformational for us.

Brandon Lewis MP
Minister of State for Housing and Planning

I am a big fan of the networking side of these because I think it is important because you build relationships with people, you always want to deal with people you know and you understand and you trust and networking is a large part of that and actually particularly bringing people together who haven’t met before and opening up new ideas, people they can collaborate with – it’s got to be a good thing.

Daniel Van Gelder
Chairman, Westminster Property Association

Collaboration is absolutely critical in property, we need to work with the Local Authority, with other developers, with stakeholders and the public.  That’s how things happen.  We can’t work in our own isolated bubbles, we work as one team.

 

Martyn Evans
Creative Director, U and I Group

The nights like tonight are really important in our industry because it is all about working together and in order to work together you have to meet people and talk and discuss and sometimes in the hot-house of daily work it is hard.  So coming here with a drink, good company – everybody is here – it’s a good party.

Melanie Leech
CEO, British Property Federation

Mishcon’s always throw a great party and actually having a pre-MIPIM party where we can get ourselves ready for MIPIM but more importantly connect with each other in an environment social, relaxed – it’s a great thing to do.

Tony Danahar
CEO, UKTI Regeneration Investment Organisation

It’s a great rehearsal for MIPIM and the great and the good of property always come to it.  It’s one of the big parties of the season.  If there are people you need to meet, you can pretty well guarantee they are here.

Reza Merchant
Founder, The Collective

This will be my fourth year at MIPIM.   Yeah I think it’s a fantastic place not only to make new connections but also to build relationships with existing people.

Sam McClary
Deputy Editor, Estates Gazette

The Estates Gazette is working with Mishcon de Reya to launch The Collaborators at MIPIM this year.  It is really a publication and event that will try to celebrate the good stuff that real estate does so real estate is all about working together and the aim is to really celebrate that.

Martin Bellinger
COO, Essential Living

What events like tonight do is they bring multi-disciplinary property people together with opinion formers, journalists and indeed policy makers because the Minister was here tonight.  What this does is it brings us all together and we can chat informally and we can make sense together of the challenges that affect the industry.

Tony Danahar
CEO, UKTI Regeneration Investment Organisation

Firms like Mishcon that are known to everyone do a great deal to bring us together.  Great matchmakers.

Susan Freeman
Partner, Mishcon de Reya

The benefit is that we get to say thank you to our fantastic clients, we get to invite people that we would like to do business with and if all goes well, they will collaborate together and there will be more business so it’s a win win situation for all of us.
