PRAGUE, Feb. 4, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Remon Vos, CEO of CTP and owner of the CTPark Network – the largest integrated system of premium business parks in Central Europe – will be speaking as part of the MIPIM 2015 conference program. Together with a panel of esteemed guests that includes Ben Godwin, Senior VP of Real Estate and Corporate Services at Tech Data, and Troy Jahaver, Head of Capital Markets CEE at Jones Lang LaSalle, Vos will expose the hidden benefits of investing in the CEE region and outline what makes the Czech Republic #1 among New Member States of the World Economic Forum in its ‘capacity for innovation’.
Organised in partnership with CTP, this session “CEE Business Smart: from low-cost manufacturing to high-tech industries” will take place onThursday, 12th March in the ORANGE room, from 14:30 – 16:00.
“The surge of new investments into the CEE region is led by the automotive industry and other high-tech added-value manufacturing activities. The Czech Republic in particular ranks as #1 in the region in areas of high-tech expertise, infrastructure and the quality of its research and innovation. At CTP, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in the number of companies looking to set up R&D and laboratory operations in the Czech Republic,” states Remon Vos, CTP Chief Executive Officer.
Industrial real estate markets across CEE are growing rapidly to accommodate this growth – at nearly twice the rate as previous years-as investors continue to consolidate and expand added-value activities across the region. CEE markets have the highest volume of modern, new-built A-class logistics stock in Europe, significantly higher than in Western Europe, where in some markets only around 20% of stock is newly built.
