About this Conference

This conference will shed a light on the current state of Ireland’s infrastructure, proposed changes, upcoming plans and forward-thinking solutions. We will explore funding and financing of major projects, including expenditure allocations. We will look at the need for investment in Regional Road infrastructure, and what is the expected breakdown of spend? Decarbonisation and the path towards net zero infrastructure will also be discussed in detail.

This is a must attend event for any professionals involved with developing infrastructure throughout Ireland, from development, planning, finance, or construction.

This is a unique virtual event from our own custom-built CMG Studios.
