At the beginning of May, I joined the Cushman & Wakefield Logistics & Industrial team, and I couldn’t have had a better welcome reception. My first week on the job coincided with INterchange 2019: The Cushman & Wakefield Industrial Conference & Expo, an annual gathering of over 600 landlord and investor clients and Cushman & Wakefield professionals.
Not only was I introduced to hundreds of the industry’s most sought-after thought leaders at the conference, but it also became clear that, more than a traditional convening, INterchange was a unique platform to exchange leading-edge concepts and build lasting professional relationships. What a great way to kick-off this new role! We had 42 speakers who presented 25 different sessions, covering what’s next for the industrial sector.
Over the summer months, we will feature many of the topics discussed during the conference here on our blog. So, stay tuned!
Below is a brief synopsis of INterchange 2019. Thank you again to all our sponsors, speakers, and attendees for making it the go-to industrial event of the year.
