Inspiration session Logistics & Real Estate (Dutch spoken)
Wednesday 29 November 2023
During this afternoon of knowledge sharing and networking, we will take a deep dive into the relevant developments in the logistics real estate market. Scarcity of land, rising prices and sustainability considerations are all driving the need for site optimization. So how can you make better use of the available number of square meters? This topic will be discussed in the context of the latest challenges in logistics real estate (multistory DCs, multimodal hubs and the debate on the ‘boxifying landscape’).
Highlights of the program include:
- Latest developments in the logistics real estate market
- What are the key challenges, and how do they affect end users?
- Panel discussion on optimization of logistics real estate sites: multistory facilities versus smarter logistics solutions
This session is a great opportunity to gain new insights, network with experts from the logistics real estate industry, and discuss the future of logistics real estate. Come and join the discussion and discover how current developments will affect end users.
We look forward to seeing you at this inspiring gathering at the splendid Landgoed Luchtenburg in Ulvenhout on Wednesday, 29 November. Doors open at 14:30 and the session ends with networking drinks plus street food & bar food at 18:00.
