The COVID-19 crisis has disrupted economies across the region this year, but amidst the slowdown, has also laid bare trends that were already reshaping the industry, including the growing importance of e-commerce and a related upswing in demand for warehouse space across Asia Pacific’s fastest growing markets.
To better understand how e-commerce is driving demand for warehouses in developing Asian economies, Mingtiandi has assembled a panel of some of the region’s largest warehouse developers and fund managers, along with experts from global advisory firms, for an interactive session webcast starting at 10:00 am Hong Kong time on Tuesday, 28 July.
The segment will examine the growth of warehouse demand in Southeast Asia, India and other fast-growing markets in Asia Pacific, and is the third and final session of MTD TV series on logistics real estate investment in the region.
MTD TV’s set of warehouse investment programs, which are hosted by Mingtiandi founder Michael Cole, have already drawn more than 4,600 viewers from among the world’s largest investment funds and region’s biggest developers.
Developers, Fund Managers and Advisors
Tuesday’s online session brings together a pair of the region’s fastest growing developers, with CK Tong, CEO of Warburg Pincus-backed BW Industrial joining alongside Peter Garrison, head of strategic customers for ARA Asset Management’s Logos Property, which has projects in Vietnam, Indonesia and India, in addition to its operations in Singapore, China and Australia.
Joining Logos and BW Industrial will be some of Southeast Asia’s most experienced advisors, including Stuart Ross, head of industrial for Southeast Asia at JLL and Frederick Burke, partner and head of Vietnam for international law firm Baker McKenzie.
Attendees at the event will be able to ask questions of Mingtiandi’s panel of experts through MTD TV’s online Q&A system, as well as participating in live polls on key topics.
The session, which is sponsored by real estate software provider Yardi Systems, can be joined free of charge by registering here.
Data Centres Up Next
Tuesday’s session wraps up Mingtiandi’s three part MTD TV series on logistics real estate in Asia Pacific, adding to the nearly 4,700 people who have tuned in for the earlier two sessions.
To follow up on the success of the logistics series, MTD TV’s next set of discussions will explore investment trends in data centres in Asia Pacific in a three part program kicking off in September. Information on sponsoring the data centre series is available here.
The data centre series will be followed in November by a two-part MTD TV series on proptech innovation in the region. We look forward to having all of you join us as we continue to bring you expert insights from industry leaders.
