The Cassidy Group joins forces with Coventry City Council to showcase City in leading global Property Conference

February 8, 2007

Cassidy Group are supporting a top-ranking city delegation at MIPIM, the World’s largest and most successful global property conference.

MIPIM 2007, which hosts over 20,000 delegates over a four day period from the 13th to 16th March, is held in the glamorous French city of Cannes.

The Cassidy Group will be making its presence felt as a member of the Coventry MIPIM Partnership, and will be showcasing its business along with fellow delegates from the city - onboard the static yacht Azure Rhapsody. Coventry has been represented at MIPIM for the past 14 years but it is the first time that private businesses have come on board - in this case quite literally - to fund the city’s presence at the show.

From their UK head office, Patric said: “There is so much happening in Coventry at the moment that this is a logical step. There is approximately £6 billion being spent on development in the city - a staggering amount for any major City.

“As such, we are delighted to be a part of the MIPIM property show and are looking forward to promoting Cassidy Group and supporting the city of Coventry, along with fellow delegates, Canon & Kirk, Deeley Properties, Oakmoor Estates, Howard Holdings, Isle of Capri, Shortland Horne and D&P Holt.

“Showcasing our business to the biggest names in European construction and development represents a fantastic opportunity not just for our Company but also for our delegation partners and most of all, Coventry.

“We are currently very active in Europe, particularly our developments in France, in the Three Valleys area of the Alps and Burgundy region, with the total value of the phased developments being over 75 million Euros. MIPIM 2007 represents an opportunity for Cassidy Group to continue to expand and strengthen its development links within Europe.”

Cassidy Group, which has an annual turnover approaching £100 Million is owned by brothers Patric and James Cassidy, who have over 25 years experience in the construction and development industry.

Its head office in Meriden, Warwickshire is the reputed centre of England. The company also has offices in Europe.

Cassidy Group are the official sponsor of Coventry City Football Club. Other sports sponsorships in the Coventry area include Cassidy Coventry Blaze (ice hockey), Coventry Cassidy Jets (American football), Coventry & North Warwickshire Cricket Club, Triumph Amateur Boxing Club, Coventry City Ladies Football Club and Coventry Rugby Club.

Cassidy Group supports a number of local and national charities including Cure Leukaemia, The Acorns Children’s Hospice and the NSPCC.
