The Department for International Trade in partnership with Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce and the British & Irish Trading Alliance presents "Opportunity: Ireland", the must-attend event for UK infrastructure and main contractors, construction companies, sub-contractors, manufacturers, suppliers and tradespeople (services).
For the first time in nearly a decade, Ireland is looking ahead to sustained growth, with the construction sector seeing increasing confidence and activity.
There are numerous standout opportunities for UK businesses in Ireland across a range of sectors including the construction of new homes, development of new life sciences and healthcare facilities and construction of major infrastructure and transport projects including road, rail and aerospace. There is great potential for UK firms to collaborate with Irish firms as part of supply chains, or to enter the market with specialised services or niche products or services.
"Opportunity: Ireland" will bring together some of Ireland's leading construction companies plus a cross-section of industry stakeholders pivotal in Ireland's construction supply chain.
Here's what you can expect to take from the day:
Information on some of the key infrastructure, commercial and residential projects due to start in Ireland.
Presentations from leading Irish construction contractors and builders merchants.
Insights from key individuals from across Ireland's construction industry spectrum.
Information on live opportunities for your business.
Practical advice on doing business in Ireland.
New valuable connections made over a networking breakfast, and throughout the day.
