Welcome to No-Cannes-Do

Established in 2010 as London’s alternative to MIPIM, No-Cannes-Do is an annual networking opportunity for the industry’s finest to form and strengthen links in the industrial property market.

Embarking on its 8th year, the event has become a diary highlight for the sector’s key players to get together for a pre-Cannes warm up, and No-Cannes-Do 2017 will be delivering another fantastic opportunity to do so at London’s OXO Tower, with plans well underway.

Canmoor, DTRE, IDI Gazeley, McLaren and Michael Sparks Associates will be hosting the event on Thursday 9th March 2017 (the week before MIPIM) to ensure that everyone can easily join them and make it out to Cannes as well.

No-Cannes-Do & Charity

No-Cannes-Do is proud to use the success of its event to raise both awareness, and substantial donations, for charity.

In 2015, No-Cannes-Do partnered with a charity dedicated to the research into Wegener’s Granulomatosis, a rare and little known autoimmune disease. The generosity of those who attended No-Cannes-Do 2015 raised over £5,400 for the charity.

2016 saw us working with who do fantastic work bringing together all sectors of the industry in its efforts to end youth homelessness. Over £5,600 was raised through No-Cannes-Do 2016.

2017 will be another opportunity for benevolence and No-Cannes-Do looks forward to continuing to facilitate this.
