Top global logistics, industrial, e-commerce, and data center real estate players will converge at REILE2023, a new trade conference to be held on May 25-26 at the Auditorio de la Diputación de Alicante (ADDA) in the picturesque historic town of Alicante, in Spain’s popular Costa Blanca region. Details, reservations, and tickets are available HERE
The conference will offer expert panel presentations on the hottest topics of the logistics real estate industry, from financing to property management, best practices, investment opportunities, last mile property development and acquisition in urban areas, workforce management, latest legal and micro-economic developments, and long-term regional and global trends.
“The event will provide extensive learning and networking opportunities in the context of the critical post-Covid industry shift that has significantly accelerated the growth of the global supply chain and industrial property industries;” shared REILE President Fedja Jovanovic. “As a real estate investor in the U.S. and Europe, I have noticed a lack of a forum that would bring together players from all sectors of the logistics
industry. We are filling this gap with our new conference and plan to expand it to other regions.”
The global warehousing and storage services market size was valued at EUR607.81 billion/USD648.35 billion in 2021. It is projected to reach EUR1,188.17 billion/USD1,264.01 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 7.70% during the period of 2022-2030 (source: Straits Research.) According to data from IBIS World Market Research Report, the European Union warehousing and storage industry has 15,200 businesses and employs nearly 300,000.
“The REILE2023 conference takes place at a pivotal time for the European logistics market. Continued uncertainty in capital markets will impact the viability of new speculative and build-to-suit projects, which in turn will keep vacancy rates low. At the same time, we expect a recession in the consumer economy, which has driven the market forward over the last five years, but we expect supply chains to continue moving
towards a more resilient footing, which in turn will drive greater occupier requirements,” said Kevin Mofid, Head of EMEA Industrial and Logistics Research at Savills and REILE2023’s speaker. “Data, insight, and opinion on the market have never been more important and this conference will deliver on all these aspects,” he added.
The upcoming conference has already attracted attendees from established e-commerce players; start-ups; family offices; real estate brokerages; investment funds; equity and debt providers; individual investors; real estate developers; asset and property managers; logistics and shipping agencies; architects, engineers, and builders; legal and human resources consultants; warehousing equipment manufacturers; and proptech providers.
REILE2023 will feature leading experts as keynote speakers and panelists discussing forecasts and best practices in the industry. Speakers include Kevin Mofid, Head of EMEA Industrial and Logistics Research, Savills; Jan van den Hogen, Tenant Relationship Manager, Logistics Global Deka, Immobilien GmbH; Bruno Berretta, Vice President at Clarion Partners; and William Yorath, Senior Surveyor, Integrated Portfolio Management at Cushman & Wakefield.
The represented property types will include logistics, warehousing, distribution, e-commerce, omnichannel, industrial, data center, light industrial, last mile, and industrial retail. An array of consultants and suppliers will present the latest in property management and operations systems, design and engineering solutions,
mechanical/plumbing/electrical and BMS equipment, legal and financial regulations, country-specific business environment, and workforce management.
“European logistics real estate continues to boast some of the best fundamentals in the European commercial property market, even though it has not been spared by the recent correction of property values. As the sector transitions into a new cycle, expert knowledge and guidance is more valuable than ever in driving investment
performance. The REILE2023 conference is a great opportunity to hear from industry leaders on the opportunities and challenges facing European logistics real estate, discuss trends shaping the sector and network with other professionals from all over Europe and the globe,” shared Bruno Berretta, a conference speaker and Vice President at Clarion Partners Europe, the European division of Clarion Partners, a leading
New York City-based real estate investment and asset manager with assets valued at over $80 billion under management.
During the conference, individual investors will have access to presentations on new investment opportunities in this coveted segment of commercial real estate, which will be organized alongside the main panels and showcase presentations.
