The Industrial Real Estate Summit will discuss how global e-commerce together with shifts in customer delivery expectations and technological innovation are driving major developments in the logistics sector.
It will focus on the location and shape of distribution centres – how technology can be used to overcome the shortage of land in the vicinity of big city centres – the use of robots, automation and smart tools, and broader power and energy considerations.

It’s no secret that the Industrial market is one fire – Construction activity continues at a pace, record absorption continues and vacancy remains steady. Consequently, investors are re-weighing their portfolio’s and investing big into Industrial.
However, as demand increases, developers are struggling to find enough space and are having to get creative where they are building, how they are building, and how they are leveraging technology to maximize the performance of their sheds and DCs.

The Industrial Real Estate Summit will bring together leaders involved in Industrial Real Estate to discuss everything from the biggest projects in the pipeline, the latest trends in construction & design, emerging markets, logistics and distribution trends.

Areas that will be covered include:

How are industrial developers getting creative with site selection and design elements?
How has last-mile delivery and the growth of e-commerce changed the requirements of industrial users – what are they looking for in a building and what can’t they live without?
How are the capital markets reacting to the ongoing industrial boom? Has the underwriting changed? Where are cap rates, and how are they impacting acquisitions and sales?
Industrial Real Estate design – why the use of technology will prove to be a game-changer
Where do we go from here – what’s next for the Industrial Real Estate sector?
