Future Development Plans – Logistics & Sheds; Sponsored by DAC Beachcroft

Monday, 3rd August 2020 1400hrs – 1500hrs

This webinar will focus on the development activity in large industrial and logistic hubs.

The logistics industry is changing – and that brings major challenges but also a plethora of opportunities for firms working in the industry.

This webinar is set to delve into all of the key subjects, as we hear from industry experts on the ever changing nature of the logistics/industrial sector and the challenges this brings to new development. And we’ll be hearing from the developers themselves on what next – where are they looking to acquire land, what new schemes are they bringing to the market, and what help do they need from the industry to make it happen.

This event will run in a similar manner to all of our physical events – with short presentations from several key speakers and opportunities for live Q&A and interaction.

Speakers for this event include:

Lucy Hudson,
Principal Policy Officer – Freight and Logistics
Sally Morris-Smith,
Victoria Turnbull,
Joint Managing Director
Marcus Madden-Smith,
Partner, Head of Logistics
