What’s Hot? What’s Not?

Steady growth for Industrial in 2020 appears to be the consensus. Despite concerns about the long-term impact of tariffs and the potential for an economic downturn, the outlook remains positive. Experts cite low vacancy rates and rising rental rates among the factors contributing to industrial’s position as one of the top commercial real estate investment classes. There’s more to the story, and you’ll hear it at Connect Industrial Midwest.

Join us Wednesday afternoon, March 4, 2020 to hear from the players who are leading the way in industrial real estate now and in the future.

Networking Break

2:50pm - 3:30pm:

Baby it’s Cold Inside: Development & Technology Needs of Cold Storage & Cannabis Uses

With increasing demand for fresh foods and online grocery, it’s logical to assume that cold storage would be among the biggest users of warehouse space. Yet there are reasons why supply remains constrained. You’ll hear experts define cold storage and cannabis uses, detail the construction and operation standards that need to be met, and forecast what’s on the horizon for development and technology.

3:30pm - 3:45pm:

Networking Break

3:45pm - 4:25pm:

I’d Walk a Mile, The Last Mile: Logistics, Supply Chain and the Intersection of Retail & Industrial

The rise of e-commerce has fueled the industrial development boom. It has also given rise to a host of new considerations that must be taken into account. Our speakers will cover the challenges and opportunities presented by the increasing demand for same-day delivery, creative last-mile strategies and partnerships, the opportunities for repurposing empty retail spaces and whether the “Amazon effect” will reach a natural limit.

4:25pm - 5:05pm:

Following the Money: Who’s Bankrolling & Funding Industrial Properties?

Behind the industrial acquisition and development deals that make the headlines is finance. The experts will drill down into the nuts and bolts of financing transactions—including financing sources, underwriting, loan to value, and recourse. They’ll also zero in on the debt and equity picture for different product types, including spec, build-to-suit, specialty and intermodal.

It is critical that we all take the emerging challenge presented by the Coronavirus seriously. We should remain calm and await more information to be provided by health experts. Clearly, there needs to be an awareness of the potential impact on the CRE industry from an economic perspective. We are watching the rapidly evolving situation to determine the best approach to our business and prepare plans based on information and recommendations from health officials. We ask those planning to attend conferences take the necessary precautions to help prevent the spread of the virus. We will look for ways to help educate those in the CRE industry and work with our event venue partners to create the safest environment possible. Some of the recommendations to protect yourself offered by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) include:
  • Frequently wash hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Avoid touching your nose, eyes or mouth without first washing your hands
  • Use tissue when sneezing or coughing and dispose of immediately
  • Avoid close contact with individuals showing signs of fever or persistent cough
If you don’t feel well take all of the above steps and
  • Seek the advice of your doctor and call ahead for appointments
  • Refrain from unnecessary contact with family members or pets
  • Stay home or work remotely
