NEWARK, NJ-The RealShare Industrial East conference will have its fourth annual renewal here on June 5th, and the issues facing commercial real estate in general are certainly more difficult now than in any of the three previous years. The day-long networking event, which is expected to attract approximately 250 attendees, will be held at the Sheraton Newark Airport Hotel. It is produced by Real Estate Media, publishers of Real Estate Forum, GlobeSt.com, Real Estate New Jersey and Industrial Property Journal.

Those issues include the current economic slowdown and the ongoing turbulence in the capital markets, and a slate of industrial experts will try to provide some answers as to where the national, regional and local industrial markets are right now and where they’re going. The larger theme of the program will be how companies and industry professionals can best position themselves to best take advantage of the opportunities that continue to exist in the marketplace, while at the same time weathering the market conditions that cloud those opportunities.

“RealShare Industrial East will gather the leading owners, investors, developers, financiers and brokers, as well as supply chain and logistics executives, for networking and to address the economic slowdown, inflation, tight credit and turbulence in the capital markets and how it will impact industrial real estate in the eastern US,” says Jason Young, conference producer at Real Estate Media.

Highlights of the program include a keynote presentation by Curtis Spencer, president of IMS Worldwide Inc., and Howard Covert, president of H.A. Covert Enterprises Inc. The duo will present their thoughts on a variety of industry topics, ranging from global logistical trends to the impact of industrial real estate on economic development in the US and around the world.

And the popular Town Hall Meeting panel will address the overall state of industrial real estate. “The real estate industry is facing tough times, but industrial may be able to muscle its way through while taking less of a beating than other property sectors,” says panel moderator Tom Tucci, senior managing director with CB Richard Ellis. Other panelists include Craig Guers, SVP and general manager of Opus East, and Jojo Yap CIO of First Industrial Realty Trust.

Other general and concurrent sessions will cover everything from innovations in streamlining the distribution and supply chain to opportunities in urban infill and brownfield development. Topics on the program also include investment sales trends, the outlook for leasing, getting deals done in the current market, getting the most out of new and redeveloped space, smart growth and the greening of industrial real estate.
