DB3 at UKREiiF 2023

UKREiiF returns

Following the success of last year’s inaugural UKREiiF, the city of Leeds is once again set to welcome visitors from across the property and construction industry. With the organisers quoting 8000 delegates split between officially registered and fringe attendees.

UKREiiF offers UK Local Authorities and their development partners the opportunity to showcase their projects, plans, and ambitions for the future to investors, stakeholders, and prospective supply chains. It’s a unique proposition that allows inward focus on UK economic growth through investment in real estate and infrastructure.

Leeds is home to DB3’s HQ and we are delighted to welcome our industry partners to the region. Our team are looking forward to making the most of the week, and having the opportunity to meet contacts from across the country.

We have put together some “Top Tips” to help people to navigate the city and experience the great local, independent businesses we have to offer.

Following on from MIPIM

Following on from MIPIM

MIPIM is widely acknowledged as the world’s leading real estate event. It provides a global platform for the UK to attract investment and to understand what factors are driving the industry internationally. UKREiiF provides opportunity to build on the momentum in Cannes and continue the important conversations around UK economic growth.

Each UK region has another the opportunity to showcase what it has to offer potential investors and generate interest in future growth. This time with a closer focus on our internal relationships and how we promote these ambitions. As a national business, DB3 supports the regions we work in in finding the growth opportunities to secure a positive outlook and strong economic position.

A key theme for this year’s UKREiiF conference is “The Levelling Up Agenda”. With the devolution deal announcements taking place during MIPIM, UKREiiF is a great opportunity for the regions to build on the positivity and opportunity for change.
