National Construction Summit





Expected to attract visitors from across the country, the 2023 National Construction Summit, which will be held on Tuesday, 21st March, at the Sport Ireland Campus, Blanchardstown in Dublin, has become firmly established as an All-Ireland ‘must-attend’ event, which successfully connects key stakeholders across the full spectrum of the construction industry.


National Construction Summit

The 2023 National Construction Summit will cover all aspects of the construction landscape, from €1bn development projects down to the humble building block.

Indeed, the purpose of the National Construction Summit is simple — To bring together construction companies, developers, policy-makers, project owners, building owners, government and municipal bodies, lenders and private investment firms, architectural and design firms, planners, facility managers, property managers, large industrial companies, technology companies, legal and tax professionals, equipment and machinery providers, building material providers, professional advisors, energy and environment professionals and other suppliers or products and services – in order to stimulate debate, enrich knowledge and connect stakeholder’s involved in the finance, design, construction and management of Ireland’s buildings, infrastructure and industrial projects.

Conference agenda

The 2023 National Construction Summit will be held in conjunction with a number of related events. It will incorporate a comprehensive conference agenda, a series of seminars and workshops, accompanied by an extensive array of exhibition stands showcasing the latest products, services and technology for the construction, engineering, sustainable building, maintenance and architectural sectors.

Key conference themes at the 2023 National Construction Summit include Jobs, Skills, Training and Education; Infrastructural Investment; Public & Private Housing; Finance; Building Materials & Services Innovation; Foreign Direct Investment (FDI); Project Ireland 2040, €4bn Housing For All Plan; Smart Design for Off-site Construction; Construction 4.0; Green Technology; and Sustainability.

The construction industry provides the necessary infrastructure required to sustain Ireland’s economic growth and competitiveness and to attract foreign direct investment (FDI). The value of Irish construction output is projected to reach €35.2bn in 2024, according to a recent EY Economic Advisory report. However, the Irish construction industry faces significant challenges, such as rising materials costs, skills shortages and difficulties in planning and public sector procurement.
