CIF Southern Construct
Summit & Exhibition 2022

The CIF Southern Construct Summit & Exhibition 2022 is the must-attend event for the entire construction sector. This year’s event will feature the highly-anticipated fourth annual Southern Construct Summit and this year for the first time, it will be complemented by a large-scale trade show and exhibition. The Summit & Exhibition will bring together senior sector leaders, policy-makers and other stakeholders to hear the latest updates helping to address the challenges facing the industry. It is an exciting time for the sector as the economic outlook for the construction industry is largely positive for the year ahead. The Summit itself will have a particular focus on the South-East, Mid-West and the South looking at how the region and, in particular Cork, needs investment to ensure successful infrastructural development for its future.

The Summit
Our expert keynote speakers and panellists at the Summit will explore how industry and government can work together and examine best practices in Europe and elsewhere. It will showcase some of the most influential projects happening in the region across transport, property, life sciences, pharmaceuticals, energy and manufacturing. Our expert panellists and keynote speakers will discuss the public spending code, infrastructural investment, the shortage of residential properties and the demand for starter homes. The trailblazers leading the field in digital adoption will tell us how digitalisation is increasing productivity and improving efficiencies. And as the industry limbers up to play a big part in the worldwide push to net zero carbon emissions, we will discuss the challenges of sustainability. We will hear from the developers, investors and local authorities who are bringing forward major exciting projects in the region. They will discuss how as more certainty emerges within the industry and confidence grows in there being a strong pipeline of industry projects, there is a need to consider how to structure the business and include the talent needed to drive these projects to completion.

The Trade Show
The CIF Southern Construct Exhibition will be live and in-person in Páirc Uí Chaoimh, Cork. The exhibition area provides an opportunity for companies to showcase their products and services to a large, valuable audience of industry professionals. Come along and meet your peers in the industry. You will learn more about your sector and get a good look at what your competitors are doing regarding new products and marketing strategies. Expos are great places to enhance your brand and for generating new leads. You can also boost customer loyalty by visiting your existing clients face-to-face to enhance customer-supplier relationships. Hear about the latest trends and see live demos of innovative technologies and state of the art products from a whole range of solution suppliers all exhibiting at the venue.

So join us on 8 September at the Summit for insightful and stimulating discussions on how you can increase productivity and improve efficiencies for your business. And visit the Exhibition & Trade Show stands which will connect you with brands, organisations, suppliers and key industry buyers. Don’t miss out!
