Industrial real estate investment
Current and future industrial real estate demand drivers
The economy’s impact on consumer demand and industrial real estate
The state of our national transportation and infrastructure systems
Accessing capital in today’s unsettled market

“As global markets slowly recover, it is imperative that we consider how increasing demand for consumer goods will affect the logistics supply chain, the demand for industrial development and trends in current and future facilities.” said Thomas J.

In an exclusive conference presentation – Art of the Deal – “Shark Tank” – attendees will watch as two developers/operators pitch their own development/acquisition opportunities to the institutional equity “sharks.” Representatives from Morgan Stanley and JP Morgan will listen as the developers pitch their deals.

The event will also include two unique industry tours in New Jersey. Attendees will have a choice of seeing the Ports of New York and New Jersey or New York’s high security DRT Data Center.
