The Hot Trend of Cold Storage

The cold storage market has recently emerged as a leading niche asset class of interest for Hong Kong investors. This rise in demand has been fuelled by the robust growth of supermarket sales, growing popularity of online grocery orders, and the pressing need for vaccine and drug storage. And subsequently, cold storage facilities are now highly sought-after, creating high interest in industrial asset from investors and operators to find fit-for-purpose space.

Join this event where you will hear from four experts who will provide the latest updates and insights on the cold storage market.
