Thursday 10th March saw No-Cannes-Do deliver another successful event from the stunning setting of London’s OXO Tower.

In its 7th year, No-Cannes-Do 2016 saw the largest turn-out yet and sponsors Canmoor, DTRE, IDI Gazeley, Irwin Mitchell, McLaren and Michael Sparks Associates extend a huge thanks to the fantastic crowd for making it the tremendous success that it was.

The event has come to be an annual highlight for the industry and the calibre of guests is second to none; everyone wanted to be there and invitations were in extremely high demand.

Now firmly established as a MIPIM ‘aperitif’, leading professionals of the industry welcome the opportunity to get together for a pre-MIPIM warm up, with No-Cannes-Do providing the perfect environment and guest-list to form and strengthen links in the market.

Thanks again to everyone who came along and for those who went to MIPIM, we hope you had a fantastic time in Cannes!

No-Cannes-Do & Charity

The Sponsors of No-Cannes-Do were once again keen to use the opportunity to raise awareness, and funds, for charity.

This year No-Cannes-Do was supporting who are working to improve the lives of disadvantaged young people in the UK. A total of £2,808 was contributed at the event, and with the sponsors once again pledging to match what was raised on the day, LandAid will be receiving over £5,600 from the generosity of everyone at No-Cannes-Do 2016! THANK YOU!

Continuing the opportunity for charity, the Sponsors of No-Cannes-Do are this year supporting who are working to improve the lives of disadvantaged young people in the UK.

LandAid provides funding and free property expertise to carefully chosen local organisations who are helping vulnerable young people realise their potential. LandAid’s vision is that the property industry unites behind one clear goal to end youth homelessness, becoming the first business sector ever to collectively achieve a massive act of social change.
