10th March 2020 - MIPIM drinks relocated to London! - PIE PRE-ORDERS CLOSE 6PM SUNDAY 8TH MARCH

With the recent postponement of MIPIM to June we didn't want to waste the opportunity for a Kiwi property social get together so we have relocated our Cannes networking drinks to The Globe Pub in Marylebone. All welcome whether you were planning to attend MIPIM or not.

You can drop in any time from 4pm for a drink without booking but if you want to take advantage of the "Pie and Pint" deal you should pre-register here to guarantee your pie. A mere £10 gets you a pint of NZ craft beer (or a glass of wine) and a genuine kiwi pie from the Secret Goldmine Café. Available flavours are Steak & Cheese, Steak & Mushroom, Potato Top, Beef & Onion and Vege (Chickpea, Tomato & Coriander). Drop us a separate line to [email protected] to nominate your choice of flavour and we will chase you up if you don't!
