Why This Matters

Industrial is emerging as a recession-proof asset class. With the e-commerce boom lead by AWS, imports have increased the demand for industrial square footage, which requires more efficient management and new lease agreements.

What does this mean for industrial acquisition strategies? Where are the new industrial spaces being built? Which technologies are streamlining management and how is leasing activity holding strong?

Join Bisnow for a discussion on how e-commerce has impacted industrial space, where investors and developers are looking to build and the future of this booming asset class.
