2018: The Year of the Entity-Level Deal

Why are consolidations in the industrial space making this year’s headlines? With limited portfolios trading, and many large companies in holding cycles, are buyers turning to purchase companies rather than portfolios?


  • - What economic drivers are playing a role in this trend?
  • - Who is financing these deals and what does the structure look like?
  • - With consolidation a trend at the forefront, who is next?
  • - Does consolidation lead to more consolidation as smaller players combine in order to compete?
  • - What benefits do the users see in the portfolio consolidations?

2:50pm – 3:10pm:

Networking Break

3:10pm – 4:00pm:

Growing Development & Changing Technology

As the industrial market continues to grow, so does the development pipeline. Is older product functionally obsolete, or how can it be redeveloped to meet today's user demand? How is technology changing the functionality of distribution centers and where do multi-story buildings come into play?

4:00pm – 4:50pm:

Expediting Orders! E-commerce at the Intersection of Industrial & Retail

With e-commerce companies looking to grow same-day delivery, last mile distribution centers continue to steer the industry in a new direction. What are the consumer-level demand drivers that are reshaping the industry? What role is retail playing in the industrial space and what can we expect in 2018 and moving forward?
