International Mipim exhibition takes place in Cannes every spring. Its a real estate trade show where companies present new development projects, search for partners and establish business relations. New England attended Mipim 2008 along with other participants from St. Petersburg.
A proud fleet of gold diggers craving a piece of the promising New England island hit the stands blue skies.
The machines caused a great stir and attracted lots of people. They had to be turned off just once so as not to distract anyone from an important speaker.
A radio controlled digger traveled the floor aiming for the potential investors feet to excite their interest. The thing won tremendous popularity and became a highlight of the show.
