Why This Matters

What You’ll Learn:

Chicago has been seeing a population decrease for a few years and the pandemic only accelerated that. With a population decrease are industrial deals still as safe as some believe? 

From O’hare to Aurora and Fox Valley, industrial projects are popping up left and right. What are the major differences between these submarkets, what are the pros and cons of each and where should you be investing? 

With a lot of spec development coming online, and construction costs soaring, what happens to owners who get stuck delivering vacant property if demand slows down? 

Online ordering (groceries and other retail) has become a common habit for many due to the pandemic. As the world returns to normal, will everyone continue to shop from home or will e-commerce continue to take a large piece of the market? And what impact will that have on the local industrial market?

How You’ll Do More Business: 

The industrial market has been booming across the country, but it’s not free money like some of the new players entering the space believe. Find out where you should be looking to invest, how to obtain capital and how to best position your company to take advantage of the hot market.

  

Who You'll Meet: Investors, developers, architects, brokers, tenants, and engineers. 

 

What Your Ticket Gets You: Digital summit tickets include two panels of content and access to  three virtual networking opportunities including direct messaging with other attendees, the ability to request and host video meetings and three-minute video-enabled speed networking to make deals happen.
