The International Private Equity Market (IPEM) is the global private equity meeting place in Cannes, bringing together all the key players from dozens of countries. Investors, entrepreneurs and fund managers, among others, exchange ideas to drive forward tomorrow’s projects.

International financing

This international private equity show features an innovative format centered around business meetings.

In the spaces of le Palais des Festivals et des Congrès, entrepreneurs, in search of financing, meet with institutional and private investors, fund managers and industry advisors from all over the world. With one objective: to finance the development of the best projects and the growth of the economy!

The world is changing, and so are investments

During these three Côte d’Azur days, professionals share their thoughts around new challenges and work on investment opportunities in the private market.

All this against a backdrop of profound changes in the world forcing everyone to adapt, to look at the economy from a different angle.

Projects of an environmental nature, around new technologies, touching on the fields of health or investment in developing countries are, for example, at the heart of discussions.

At the planet's bedside

Faced with climate change shaking up the times as never before, the trade show believes it can -and must- make its contribution to the cause of social and environmental responsibility.

The private equity industry is part of the solution, believe the organizers, who are setting up very concrete initiatives during IPEM in the image of conferences, advice and strategic explanations around these essential notions in the presence of renowned speakers.

January in Cannes is great, it’s a more intimate moment that allows for very high quality networking. There’s an immediate effect as soon as you arrive, it’s the village feel. Our customers meet along la Croisette and at le Palais des Festivals et des Congrès in a context that facilitates contacts (…) The events that will continue to grow will be extremely green events. Organizers need to be very vigilant in this respect. At the same time, we must continue to welcome the world and show that bringing people together in the same place saves thousands of journeys. It’s a dimension that’s often overlooked in our profession, and it’s important that le Palais des Festivals et des Congrès defends it
