Friday: Friday is always a bit of a slow day, and today is no different. People seem a little jaded. I would be interested to know how many miles have been walked by the 20,000 participants. I know I have clocked up a few and can tell by the blisters on my feet. I think trainers should be mandatory for all participants, but you know what they say, over 40s shouldn’t wear trainers unless they’re partaking in sport. You could,…

Thursday AM: Has MIPIM changed over the 9 years that I have been attending (which incidentally equates to only 36% of MIPIMs in Cannes)? It is definitely recovering from the slump in 2009 to 2012. Numbers seem to be on the up again, from last year, but it still remains very focused with the right people attending. Back in 2006 or 2007 I met and talked to many developers and clients in the bars (where incidentally most of the connections…

Thursday AM: Another morning…. another Berocca. Another late night for most. Some of the people walking about are a little more crumpled and their eyes a little more glazed, even more than yesterday. Lots of sunglasses on show, even though the sun isn’t fully up yet. Yesterday was fascinating and I am looking forward to today with as much gusto. British Design was discussed at great length yesterday and the appreciation of good design is evident. With the improving economic…

Wednesday PM: The “Countries of Honour” this year are Russia, Turkey and Brazil (quite a solid football theme with 2 of the 3 as the next hosts of the World Cup and great to also see Qatar here in force as well) What difference does the country of honour have on each of the days for the average attendee? Not a lot. Not a lot unless you are specifically attending the discussions that are being held by each Nation. But…

Wednesday AM: Here’s a snap of the brilliant firework display at the opening night party. Another MIPIM, another beautiful morning. Lots of people walking purposefully in every direction heading off to meet people. As I head towards my first breakfast meeting I’m thinking about the likely top trends for @MIPIM2014 on twitter: 1. #MIPIM2014 2. #Russia 3. #25yearsofMIPIM 4. #expo2020 5. #twipim 6. #bunker 7. #rockthecashbar 8. #CaffeRoma 9. #Architecture 10. #KettleCo (maybe by the end of the week!!)

Tuesday PM: Arrive in Cannes. First stop is to meet my agent to collect keys for my apartment (well room with 2 sofa beds) before heading back to Caffe Roma to see who is about. It looks much the same as every year, in fact if I hadn’t passed through Cannes this summer with my family, I could imagine that Caffe Roma always looks the same with the same familiar faces and familiar bar staff outside selling bottles of Heineken….

Tuesday AM: Up early to catch my flight. It’s usually a direct, cheap but sadly discontinued EasyJet flight. This year I’m flying BA via Charles De Gaulle and it’s not the usual packed flight of MIPIM tourists all heading south. I drive to the airport, and with two flights and a bus to Cannes with over 20,000 people (and rising) having similar plans, I can’t help but wonder about the Carbon Footprint of MIPIM, each of these journeys to meet…

You can find the Architects Journal 2014 MIPIM Live Blog here, now with Colin’s fist update included which you can also find below: Monday 2014 is my ninth time to MIPIM so packing has become an old routine (and it certainly doesn’t feel like a year since MIPIM 2013). Here’s this years “MIPIM Survival Pack,”devised over the years (in…
