Deals at Mipim are usually lubricated by alcohol, but attendees this year were keen to emphasise that the event would be all about business Times photographer jack hillThe verdict was unanimous. This was the worst weather that anyone had seen at Mipim. Sunglasses were taken off and raincoats were pulled on as water cascaded on to the streets of Cannes on the final day of the world’s biggest property conference. For British guests, at least, the weather only added to an already muted mood.
The chief executive of British Land, which has bought the Royal Victoria Place shopping centre in Tunbridge Wells, said the Presidents Club saga had proved a setback for the sector REX FEATURESThe head of British Land has said that the Presidents Club scandal may have made it harder for property companies to employ women in senior positions from other industries.
The Mipim conference at Cannes had a reputation for escorts and scantily clad women but is trying to shake that off ANNE-CHRISTINE POUJOULAT/GETTY IMAGESAlong the boulevards of the French Riviera, the biggest event in the property industry began yesterday. About 24,500 people, from developers and bankers to politicians, are descending on Cannes. They are here for Mipim, a global event at which deals are made, gossip is exchanged and business cards swapped in a sea of champagne and beer.
@RJPartington Oh no he definitely wasn’t saying the FT did a bad job revealing it, sorry if it implies I that, he’s saying it’s caused damage to a sector that has been doing lots to try and change that image of property as men only
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
