Jim Dieter Presents at SIOR Fall World Conference
23 Nov, 2010, Chicago
Commercial real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield, Inc.'s Jim Dieter, SIOR, executive vice president, Industrial Brokerage, U.S., led an educational session on the "U.S. Industrial Landscape" at the recent SIOR 2010 Fall World Conference in San Antonio, Texas. His presentation there highlighted a series of high-profile speaking engagements this fall.
At the SIOR event, Dieter discussed the current dynamics of the U.S. industrial landscape. "While the industrial market is not a crystal ball, it is typically the first real estate sector to rebound from a recession," he said. "As such, we believe that the trends and conditions of the industrial market can provide valuable insight to the overall direction of the economy."
Additionally, Dieter moderated the recent BISNOW Real Estate Industrial Summit in Chicago, where leaders in the service provider and development community provided insights on the current Chicago industrial market as well as national and international trends. That successful program focused on flexibility as the key to getting deals done in Chicago's industrial market and indicated that international investment will be critical to jumpstarting the post-recession supply chain.
