SKIPIM was something organised by Adapt, alongside Albatross Capital and Medianett Publishing, as a UK alternative to MIPIM, an annual event in Cannes attended by hundreds of the Specialist Finance industry.

Over 250 people crammed into Dirty Martini on Hanover Square in London and enjoyed free drinks and food all afternoon and evening. No speeches or fancy stuff, just an open networking event for people to meet new contacts and enjoy time with old friends.
