SEGRO plc (“SEGRO” or the “Group”) is hosting an Investor & Analyst Event today on “Defining the Urban Warehouse Opportunity” at the National Theatre in London, followed by tours of its London portfolio.

Urban warehousing in major European cities is a unique asset class with specific market characteristics and attractive supply-demand dynamics which drive superior returns. SEGRO is uniquely positioned to capture this opportunity with its irreplaceable portfolio of urban assets in Europe’s largest cities and its market-leading operating platform (including within its data centre business).

David Sleath, CEO, will open the event, which will feature presentations by senior members of the SEGRO management team as well as the JLL Industrial and Logistics Research team. There will also be a customer panel with representatives from John Lewis, Royal Mail and RD Content, as well as a panel including the Deputy Mayor of London, Jules Pipe.

The presentations will cover the following topics:
