GRI Light Industrial & Logistics Europe 2019

6 - 7 November
De L'Europe Amsterdam

E-Commerce Erupting, Big Boxes & Sheds Changing…What’s Next?

This is a get-together event of senior international and European real estate investors

Logistics has long been a ‘Tier 1’ Core money maker for most of Europe’s capital markets. Yet, with continued urbanisation, changing global trade demographics and ever growing demand from e-commerce, real estate leaders must prepare and invest for the fourth (light) industrial revolution.

GRI Light industrial and Logistics is a unique opportunity and a private gathering on a senior, pan-European level. Join private equity, opportunistic and institutional investors together with pure play logistics operators, big box developers, asset owners as well as build-to-suit light industrial visionaries. Understand the changing nature of the sector to forge new partnerships in order to find value in the presently hyped up but under-supplied asset class.
