CIF Southern Region Construction Summit 2020

The Construction Industry Federation and Business Post Events is delighted to announce the staging of the 2020 Southern Construction Conference and Exhibition in Páirc Uí Chaoimh on November 20th. Following the enormous success of last year’s inaugural event, one of the core themes of this year’s conference will be how we ensure the delivery of key infrastructure projects to the region.

  • How is the crisis changing construction and reshaping property demands?

This event will showcase some of the most influential projects ahead especially in transport, property and manufacturing, as well as delivering a thorough thought out agenda on what the region needs in order to ensure successful infrastructural development for the region’s future. This year’s conference will also be live streamed to facilitate virtual attendance.

Whilst our agenda is at an early stage of development, topics we’ll be exploring include:

  • Transport Infrastructure in the southern region: An update
  • The importance of the southern region and its urban centres to Ireland’s
