Logistics and logistics real estate have a long tradition at the trade fair: atnumerous exhibitor booths and the joint booth “LogReal Campus” you can meet project developers, dealers, investors and logistics partners. An ideal place to get talking to experts and make valuable contacts.
Industrial and logistics real estate, which has established itself as the third strongest asset class on the commercial investment market, has won over even the most stubborn of critics (source: Colliers).
There are a number of factors that have contributed to the sector’s runaway success, including the ongoing boom in e-commerce and the highly competitive contract logistics sector. The latest market data confirm the strength of the sector’s growth. The sustained demand for logistics space is also reflected in the total volume of new construction, which in 2019 was once again over 4 million square meters (source: Logivest).
Excess demand in Germany’s most important logistics regions has led to an increase in speculative project development, which would be even higher if more land were available. According to market observers, this trend will continue to intensify unless the supply situation improves.
Many of the industry’s most prominent companies joined forces to launch Initiative Logistikimmobilien (Logix), which provides a platform for dialog, research and improving the image of logistics real estate. At EXPO REAL 2019, Logix was presenting a publication that includes interviews with municipal decision-makers talking about their experiences of setting up new logistics parks. In addition, the “Let’s Talk Logistics” panel discussion provides an opportunity for exciting discussions and a variety of perspectives. Another major highlight is the traditional presentation of the Logix Award on EXPO REAL’s first evening. The award ceremony will honor the most outstanding logistics project developments of the last two years.
