Hop on board for an up-close, guided boat tour of the Port of Long Beach. The port complex is the second largest in the United States, accounting for approximately 45 percent of all containers coming into the nation. The combined volume of containers at the Port of Long Beach and Los Angeles put it in the top five ports globally. Gain insights and information about this bustling port and the state of the surrounding real estate market.
This tour is sold out. To join a waiting list, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the conference registration desk on-site.
8 a.m. - 11:45 a.m.
Get a first-hand look at how cargo is loaded and unloaded from a vessel, as well as how imports are discharged via truck and rail to intermodal distribution centers. The tour will then “follow the freight” to a nearby cross-dock facility to see how cargo is then consolidated, deconsolidated, and transloaded before traveling further down the supply chain. Along the way, learn about the real estate and development market of the Port area as the tour passes important industrial features including the Tesoro Refinery, the Intermodal Container Transfer Facility, Los Angeles River and Watson Industrial Park.
10:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
Gain a deeper understanding of the global supply chain with this visual tour of ports around the world, presented by the Colliers Logistics and Transportation Group. In the last three years, 60 senior industrial brokers from across the country have visited the Panama Canal, Beijing, Shanghai, Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, Port of Houston, Ports of New York and New Jersey, and the Dallas Inland Port. Discover what takeaways this group has to share about the impact of the global supply chain and how it affects demand for warehouse space in the United States in this special session.
noon - 2 p.m.
Welcome to I.CON 2015! Begin the conference with a networking lunch and welcome remarks by NAIOP and SIOR leadership.
Hear from the leaders of national development companies, private and institutional, as they discuss the state of the market and where they see opportunity. What are the major factors that influence their decision making and what geographic areas do they favor for growth? What are the local dynamics, both market and regulatory, they want to see before taking risk on a speculative development? How do they view the capital markets, the cost of capital today and potential vagary of future value? What role does development play in an institutional investment fund or REIT’s investment strategy? How does the private developer compete with the institutions? This discussion will provide a fascinating contrast between the viewpoints of the institutional and private developer.
2 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
Take advantage of the opportunity to make new connections and strengthen existing ones.
2:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
This compelling session will provide an overview of all aspects of the supply chain from defining the components to taking a macro-system perspective of the process. A diverse panel of professionals with experience in the supply chain sector will discuss topics including supply chain significance; current and future developments in the supply chain; and potential pitfalls and opportunities.
3:35 p.m. - 5 p.m.
Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the development water…Shark Tank is back! Top developers compete for equity capital from institutional investors searching for the best industrial development deals from around the country. Developers who dare to enter the “Shark Tank” will pitch real deals and a panel of three “Sharks” will consider project economics, site and building design and market fundamentals to determine the best of the best. This interactive session will provide an in-depth look at exactly how and why development decisions are made in today’s environment. This year the audience will be able to weigh in and electronically cast a vote for their favorite “shark.”
5 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Close the day with a lively event where you’ll see new products, enjoy refreshments and strengthen business connections.
7:30 a.m. - 8 a.m.
8 a.m. - 8:55 a.m.
As land prices escalate, industrial development increasingly heads out of America’s cities seeking “greener” pastures in outlying areas. What are the opportunities for infill development? What are the unique challenges of in-fill versus greenfield in dealing with entitlement issues, underwriting and attracting capital? This session will explore the prospects for reinventing, reinvigorating and rebuilding our industrial base in urban locations. Will in-fill ultimately supplant greenfield? What are the implications for America’s infrastructure? This session will also address how “legacy” master-planned business parks are planning for this future and the steps they are taking to compete with the newer, bigger and better product in those outlying areas.
9 a.m. - 9:55 a.m.
The availability of abundant energy resources in North America is creating a structural economic advantage for the regional manufacturing sector. The revolution in unconventional gas production is supporting the rebirth of certain industries to move operations to the United States. Resource intensive industries such as plastics will increase production and exports, encouraging the demand of new logistics facilities, resulting in growth in jobs and GDP. This re-shoring of manufacturing and the supporting array of industrial facilities and investment opportunities are trends that will forever impact our economies.
9:55 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.
Expand your professional network with other industry professionals from across North America.
10:30 a.m. - 11:25 a.m.
Regulatory requirements are ever present and ever changing in the development world. Some are viewed as positive, others as restrictive and barriers to continued growth and effective development. This panel will discuss the issues, their impacts on the development business and how each developer deals with current regulatory standards. They will also share ideas of how our industry can effect positive change and examples of real situations they’ve faced.
11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
With pricing for industrial product at or near historic highs, there is little debate that the industrial sector is generating more investor interest than ever. How long will this trend continue? We’ll hear what our panel of experts is predicting for the remainder of 2015 and beyond. Our panel will also examine the pros and cons of alternative investment strategies such as forward sales, joint ventures, speculative development, secondary/tertiary markets and portfolio sales.
