Why This Matters

What You'll Learn:

- Industrial has been the pandemic's darling. A lot of new players are entering the market seeing opportunities. What impact will all of these new players have in the market? 

- Buying habits have changed during the pandemic. If Americans continue to buy online, how will the industrial space meet the demand?

- Malls were struggling long before the pandemic. Can empty big-box retail be repositioned into fulfillment centers or last-mile delivery? 

 

How You'll Do More Business: Industrial has been booming for the past year with more players and money entering the market. Demand for a prime location for last-mile delivery has never been higher. Find out about short-term and long-term trends that are changing the industrial 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. Unable to attend live? Don’t worry, you will be able to access recordings of all panels for 30 days after the summit!
