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.

Insights Talkshow
All Hyped Up! But where do we go from here?
Whilst most agree the rental growth and ROI is undeniable for light industrial and logistics, opinions differ on what to build, where to buy, who to cater for. Asia Pacific, US and European Champions of the asset classes, reflect on market moods, past strategies and what might be coming up around the corner. 
Insights Talkshow
Convergence of Light Industrial, Logistics and Retail - Less is pure!
Many feel that ‘pure play’ retail is not just going through structural challenges, there is a fundamental shift of supply and demand. Retailers, E-tailers and Real Estate professionals offer critical end user insights to understand the retail supply-demand chain and future uses and wants of space. Is the future of retail all about omni or is there further development value in mixed use hubs, and for whom and where can we cater for such demand?
Wrap Up Keynote
City Futures - Density, Drones, Driverless and Demographics
Density in urban areas, land and rent price wars, impact of migration, driverless cars and changing needs of how people want to live to work and play. How does the real estate market navigate the trends and what will be the place of light industrial and logistics?
