The Industrial Research Forum was established by CBRE, Colliers, DTZ and JLL with its aim to provide clients with consistent, accurate and transparent data about the Czech Republic industrial real estate market.
Cushman & Wakefield joined the Industrial Research Forum as its fifth member at the beginning of 2015. The members of the Industrial Research Forum share non-sensitive information and believe the establishment of the Industrial Research Forum will enhance transparency on the Czech industrial market.
The Industrial Research Forum is pleased to announce the preliminary Industrial Market figures for Q2 2015.
