“MIPIM is the best place in Europe, possibly the world, that I know of to make property deals happen. I would say to any business that wants to be part of team Leicester to go for it! That’s what we did, and we’ve made a massive increase in profit.

And if we weren’t part of team Leicester, we would have been outsiders trying to get in whereas Team Leicester is a team and you help each other, individual companies and you help the city.”
