The Cannes International Emigration and Luxury Property Expo (CIELP Expo) is an exhibition dedicated to immigration, luxury real estate, and private financial consulting to be held between 26 and 27 October in Cannes. The event will bring together leading immigration companies, property developers, consultancies, and auditing firms from more than 30 countries.


They are called High-net-worth individuals, people with high private capital income. Financiers, celebrities, international entrepreneurs, the social function is diverse but the interest is the same: to win more, to spend more, to place better.

To ensure the long-term survival of their business and subsequently its growth, high net worth individuals invest in developed countries to inflate their assets and create more income. Despite the Panama papers scandal and other cases of tax fraud, the market for immigration services and foreign real estate is on the rise. Demand in some markets significantly exceeds the proposal.

In order to answer to the growing need, the International Expo Emigration & Luxury Property is organizing a forum from 26 to 27 October 2017 in Cannes.

Held at the Palais des Festivals and Congresses in Cannes, the IELP Expo will allow high net worth individuals to meet:

- Immigration companies
- Law firms
- International real estate agencies
- Private financial consultancies

The advice of real estate professionals will allow the acquisition of high-end real estate for private use and generate a reliable preservation of assets. Immigration services on the forum will be able to refer high net worth individuals to residency status (residence permits, Permanent Residence) by real estate purchase programs.
