BA Hons in Philosophy from Kings College London, hobbies include Rugby, Theatre Production and Time Out Tastemaker.

Light Industrial & Logistics real estate seems to be the global darling for buying, and with eCommerce forever on an upswing, it makes sense for real estate investors to get in on the deals now.

Yet, with yields becoming tighter and tighter and Coronavirus disrupting global supply chains, what are the best strategies to advance new partnerships and find value in these asset classes?

Now in its second year, participants find the discovery process for sourcing deal flow is most advantageous by welcoming, behind closed doors, Europe’s largest concentration of Private Equity Investors, Fund Managers, 3PL’s, Operators, LP’s Developers, Asset Owners, Operators and Lenders invested in the asset class. Over two days they will engage in a series of informal roundtables where everyone can participate, and navigate the current challenges presented by demand, purchasing and future trends.

Undersupply SOS!

The €20bn bubble?

  • Supply & Demand - Do the numbers make sense?
  • Transaction & Investment Activity Stats
  • Land Shortages or Land Banking?
  • Inner City Logistics - Repurposing as the only option?
  • COVID Accelerated Challenges & Opportunities -Low vacancy, nearshoring , land availability & e-commerce
  • Urban Demand - Is there a shift in traditional logistics hotspots and will there be a crunch?

  • Tenant Demand - More flex, longer leases & specialised facilities to favour BTS?
  • Pricing - Releasing risk premiums for BTS pushing occupiers towards spec developments?
  • High Rise & Density Key For Scale?
  • Raising Capital For Spec Dev & BTS - Institutional appetite, debt & JVs
  • Asset Types - Last Mile, Big Boxes & Light Industrial; what’s the investors’ darling?
