BOMA/Suburban Chicago's Industrial Committee invites you to join us for the 2022 Industrial Summit. This year's program will showcase a panel of industrial real estate experts as they share best practices together with their vision and strategies for collaboration between property management and asset management.
The complexity of these roles originates from the overlap of disciplines with property managers, who handle the day-to-day activities relating to operations. How we manage these relationships can be beneficial or detrimental to investment performance as an asset manager. We hope you will join us for this valuable learning opportunity.
