EIRE - Expo Italia Real Estate, which takes place from June 7-9, 2011 at Fieramilano, will open its doors with the 'States-General of Italian Real Estate' divided into a series of events and conferences dedicated to all areas of real estate during the three-day event.
In regards to the logistics area, for the first time at EIRE, a Real Estate Logistics Focus will be organized, with the objective of making EIRE a point of reference also for the entire Real Estate Logistics sector. In fact, the seventh edition of the largest real estate event in Italy will play host to major industry players who are returning to promote new projects and opportunities: GVA Redilco, Jones Lang LaSalle, Nord Est Sviluppo, Gruppo Vitali, World Capital, Cushman & Wakefield and Consorzio ZIP. Entities participating for the first time include: Akno Business Park, Gazeley, GSE Italia, Panattoni Europe, Prologis, Seci Real Estate and the Industrial Development Consortiums of Oristano and Olbia.
"The logistics sector represents an important component of the Italian economic system, contributing to 14% of the national GDP each year", highlighted Massimo Mazzi, President of Redilco Real Estate. "Those areas forming part of the 'logistics' sector include goods transport, warehousing and added value logistical services...". It is for this reason that EIRE wishes to offer a Real Estate Logistics Focus to the Italian and international real estate community, taking place amongst other events through a rich conference program:
June 8, 2011, 10.00am - 'Real estate logistics: Operator needs' is the title of the World Capital Real Estate Group Conference. "The demand for real estate logistics is showing signs of recovery," states Andrea Faini, Managing Director of World Capital Group, "and it is for this reason that once again, we have invited the most important national and international players to EIRE in order to elaborate on the theme".
For the second year in a row, The Real Estate Market Overview of Logistics by World Capital, Assologistica and Euromerci has suggested using EIRE as a time for reflection on the theme of real estate logistics. The moderator for the day will be Giovanni Leonida, Vice President of Assologisitica. The event will involve an introduction by C-Log, the Centre for Logistics Research of the Università Cattaneo LIUC, on the current supply of real estate logistics in Italy.
