Preparing you and your business for the road ahead...

Book Tickets


Construction activity in Ireland is steadily increasing and the recovery in employment, which was decimated in the crash, has been one of the central features of the recent economic turnaround. Whilst growth has definitely gained momentum, construction businesses must ensure that this growth is sustainable, productive and efficient to protect against the boom and bust cycles of the past. This is why the Sunday Business Post has decided to host a new event, focussed on preparing you and your organisation for the road ahead.

This event addresses the management issues directly affecting construction businesses and how they can compete and maintain their competitive edge. You will gain real-world and practical knowledge, learning about the latest industry trends, as well as best practices in construction business operations management, productivity and skills and training.

Join us on March 29 to discover and implement ideas that deliver results, search for innovative solutions and make valuable connections with other industry professionals as well as suppliers and service providers.

Focusing on how you and your organisation can prepare for the road ahead, we’ll be covering issues like:


  • Minding your business: Practical tools to improve decision-making, drive ownership and accountability and develop your leadership and motivational skills and how to work more efficiently and effectively
  • What are the hottest trends that will affect your business in the next 5 years?
  • Talent management and developing the next generation of leaders for your business
  • Short-term solutions: How can companies fill the need for skilled people in the next 5 years?
  • Transforming productivity in construction: Why construction industry leaders need to digitise their business processes
  • The nZEB regulation: What are the essential issues for construction companies in delivering nZEB?

Job titles that will benefit most include:


  • Construction business owners and senior personnel
  • CIF members
  • Developers
  • Planners
  • Engineers
  • Contractors
  • Policy-makers
  • Service providers to the construction sector
