McBains has decided not to attend MIPIM this year because of increasing concerns over the spread of coronavirus.
Clive Docwra, Managing Director, said:
“In the light of increasing concerns over the spread of coronavirus, McBains has decided not to attend MIPIM this year.
“While we are disappointed to be making this decision, we feel it is the right thing to do given that the World Health Organization today said the fight against the global spread of the virus has entered a decisive point. We therefore believe taking this precautionary step is the most sensible and responsible course of action to protect the health of staff, industry colleagues and clients.
“McBains has a longstanding attendance at MIPIM and we look forward to attending in future years.”
