Excitement for the pipeline of capital and housing projects tangible as the National Construction Summit on April 18th set to be the largest industry event in Ireland.

Dublin, 12 April 2024, – The 10th edition of the National Construction Summit is set to be the largest with 4000 industry professionals and stakeholders expected to meet over 200 exhibitors and 150 speakers at the event taking place at the Sports Ireland Campus in Blanchardstown on April 18th.

Including Darragh O’Brien TD, Minister for Housing, Local Government & Heritage, who will provide the keynote address.

Speaking ahead of the event, Minister O’Brien said: “I very much look forward to joining the National Construction Summit next week and to having the opportunity to speak representatives from the sector. The record investment made under Housing for All is delivering real progress, with record housing completions and commencements.

The construction sector has of course been a key partner in delivering this progress, and it will be a key partner as we work to build on that momentum. That is why we have already brought forward a comprehensive range of interventions to address viability and cost challenges, and will continue to work with the sector so that together we can scale up supply and address our housing challenges.”

The Main Stage will also feature discussions on practical solutions to transform Ireland’s built environment including housing, recruitment, decarbonisation, digital infrastructure, and modern methods of construction. The programme will conclude with a presentation from the National Development Finance Agency and a panel discussion on how public-private partnerships (PPP) can help meet Ireland’s infrastructure challenges.

Joining that discussion will be Mila Lopez Simon, Invesis’ new Managing Director for the UK & Ireland. Speaking ahead of the National Construction Summit Simon said:

“Invesis is a long-term investor and developer present in Ireland for more than two decades. We are excited about the pipeline of PPP projects and look forward to continue helping the country to develop its infrastructure. I look forward to attending and participating at the National Construction Summit and to discussing this and many other relevant topics.”

The 150+ speakers hail from across the world and across the supply chain including SMEs and disruptors to the biggest international names in the industry like Kingspan and Bam with dedicated stages for Architecture, Design & Fit-Out, Project Controls, Construction TECH & BIM, Smart, Green & NZEB, Data Centres & Critical Infrastructure, Facilities Maintenance & Management / Health & Safety, and Modern Methods of Construction.
