Economic Forecast Keynote

Industrial real estate has grown immensely in the recent years, but is there a surplus or is the demand outweighing supply?

1:25pm – 2:10pm:

Investment Leaders Roundtable

Who is putting investment capital into the industrial sector and what does the economic future hold for the space? Will Industrial demand continue at its current rate, or will the market see a decrease in dollars? As competition tightens in core markets, will investors turn to secondary markets for opportunities? Industrial leaders discuss why this hot property type continues to be so attractive to the investment community.

Networking Break

2:30pm – 3:15pm:

Changing the Landscape: The Evolution of Omnichannel Commerce

When purchasing power shifted from the retailer to the consumer, logistics evolved drastically and industry had to evolve with it. From technology to site selection to rethinking the supply chain, experts will sound off on the phenomenon of e-commerce and discuss topics including today’s CRE demands, how logistics companies are keeping up, predicting 6-24 months ahead, how the industry is staying afloat in the 24/7/365 e-commerce environment, and more.

4:25pm – 5:10pm:

Development & Adaptive Reuse: Creating and Re-Creating Space

As one of the hottest asset classes in commercial real estate, Industrial development is booming. What type of facilities are being developed and re-developed, and what amenities are consumers looking for when they build to suit?
