5:00 PM  |  Addressing West Coast Market Disruption

As the country navigates an uneven recovery, some western regions were the hardest hit with the fallout from extended lockdowns and business limiting regulations. Economic and political unrest has led to what many economists are referring to as “a mass exodus” from densely populated urban cities across the west coast. However, with every challenge comes untapped opportunity, including an increased footprint in suburban markets, medical/healthcare demands at an all-time high, and the increased need for industrial fulfillment space. This session will explore all this and more during a highly engaging and thought-provoking panel.
