Event Summary

It’s no secret that the DFW Industrial market is one fire! According to a recent Cushman & Wakefield report, DFW Construction activity reached a new high in the market at 34.9msf. Record absorption continues nearing 5.8msf, and vacancy remains steady. Consequently, foreign investors are taking note and investing big in DFW. In fact foreign investors spent $849M on industrial investments in DFW alone last year.

However, as demand increases at a rapid pace, developers are struggling to find enough space and are having to get creative where they are building. With much more availability away from the urban core,

developers are getting more bang for their buck when they decide to build outside of the city’s traditional markets. Alliance TX, the DFW airport submarket, and Southwest Dallas have seen a boom in activity this last year.



It’s no wonder why North Texas is growing faster than any other region in the US and attracting

big corporate relocations, like electronic component distributor Chip 1 Exchange, Korea-based conglomerate KT&G USA Corp &

Minneapolis Mid-States Distributing Co.

To put it simply, 2019 was a great year for DFW. The big question is, what can we expect in 2020?

Find out from the experts at this can’t miss event. We will discuss everything from the biggest projects in the pipeline, the latest trends in construction & design, emerging markets, logistics and distribution tends.
