Poland – real estate investment opportunities – commercial, industrial and retail

The British Polish Chamber of Commerce, the Investment Promotion Section of the Embassy of Poland, PAIiIZ, JLL and Cushman&Wakefield invite you to: Poland – real estate investment opportunities – commercial, industrial and retail

Poland's economy continues to demonstrate robust growth despite the sluggish economy of the eurozone and Russian sanctions. GDP is expected to grow by 3.5% this year and at a similar pace next year. New foreign investments continue to stoke the shared services/BPO, IT and R&D sectors. Poland's regional capitals have low vacancy rates and demand for quality space, and a young (and increasingly choosy) workforce wants better offices to work in.

Demand for industrial and logistics space is also robust; the intense development of Poland's road network over the past few years has changed the map of Central Europe, with new hubs emerging near the strategic crossroads. Meanwhile Polish industrial production continues to grow, driven by its increasing role in the German manufacturing's supply chain.

Retailers are looking to tap into ever-smaller Polish towns where lack of modern shopping space gives new developments the edge over traditional outlets. And in the biggest cities, vacancy rates in modern malls remain low.

Investment capital is finding solid yields in Poland, with pension funds and private equity from all corners of the globe looking for projects. This evening event will help guide you to through the opportunities and will be a chance to meet real estate professionals who know the Polish market intimately.
