CREtech Talks: The Evolving Dynamics of Ecommerce

Friday, May 15 2020 12:00 pm EST

Prior to the onset of COVID-19, the industrial real estate sector was scorching hot. In the post pandemic era, this asset class is widely anticipated to resume a similar, albeit evolved trajectory, driven largely by fast-growing e-commerce dynamics. But the sector’s recovery is complicated by the demand for reliable supply chains, touchless handling, robotic delivery, more automation, 3D printing, and a flexible returns process, not to mention capital considerations. Accordingly, industrial real estate leaders across the ecosystem are transforming their strategies based on lessons learned, plausible tech-enabled opportunities, and anticipated market forces.

Join our three expert panelists Geoffrey Kasselman of CRG, Will O’Donnell of Prologis Ventures, and Jay Todisco of Ware Malcomb, together with moderator Rich Thompson of JLL, as they share their near and long term perspectives on the impact of the pandemic and innovative solutions and technologies they’re using to lead and succeed today and in the future.
