KIAWAH ISLAND, SC—Womble Bond Dickinson attorney Stephanie Few moderated a panel discussion on the future of the Carolinas’ Industrial Markets at the Urban Land Institute’s 2019 Capital Markets Conference.

Throughout the Carolinas, a flurry of industrial activity is driving local, regional and state economies. As ports, rail and interstate improvements come to fruition and logistics infrastructure enhancements take shape, global companies continue to locate and invest in the Carolinas. This panel of end-users and industrial developers shared insights into the bright future of the Carolinas’ industrial markets.

Few was joined in the discussion by:

  • Brian Hall, Samet Corporation;
  • Derek Mathis, SunCap;
  • Byron Miller, SC State Ports Authority; and
  • Arch Thomason, CEO, Sunland Logistics Solutions.

Other sessions included Market-Oriented Solutions to Expanding Affordable Housing, A Luxury Hospitality Panel Discussion, and a Fireside Chat with LOWE Chairman of the Board Bob Lowe. South Carolina Lt. Gov. Pam Evette delivered the opening keynote at the conference. 

The ULI Capital Markets Conference took place Nov. 19-20 in Kiawah Island, SC. More than 500 participants attended the conference.
