Property professionals can help make a charity tennis tournament a smash hit by being among the first to sign up at MIPIM UK on October 18 and 19.
Just 32 competitor places are available for the MIPIM LandAid Tennis Classic which is again being organised by White Label and takes place from 9am to 12.30pm on Wednesday, March 14, 2018.
The fundraising tournament, at which MIPIM delegates swap deal-making for tie-breaking, has rapidly become a showpiece event during the world's leading real estate expo.
To promote the 2018 event, MIPIM UK organisers Reed Midem have set aside space for delegates at Olympia London to test their skills on an inflatable practice REBO wall, with a competition taking place over the two days.
This year's MIPIM LandAid Tennis Classic raised £20,915 for LandAid, the property industry's charity, which improves the lives of children and young people, plus a further £1,100 for the Cannes Community Fund.
Founding partner Martin Skinner, the chief executive of Inspired Homes and a former winner of the tournament, said: "It's a good fun break in the middle of MIPIM – we don't take it too seriously.
"It's a great cause. We're all trying to make money in real estate and it's good to put something back to those who desperately need it."
