Republic of Ireland Development Conference

Tuesday, 26th April 2022 0830hrs – 1630hrs

The Convention Centre, Dublin, D01 T1W6

This conference will look to highlight the development opportunities and regeneration schemes across the Republic of Ireland that will help the country bounce forward as we move out of the pandemic whilst looking at the opportunities to drive sustainable investment and inclusive economic growth into the country.

The Republic of Ireland has become a hub for global investment – and the country wants to see this continue. We’ll not only look at thriving cities like Dublin – but we’ll look across the wider country at the ambitious development plans being proposed – from commercial projects and data centres, to new towns, zero carbon and sustainable development, placemaking and the ever growing BtR sector.

We’ll do this by gathering key decision makers and stakeholders from the public and private sector – with short presentations, exclusive information and expert insights being shared.

Topics to be discussed:

  • 645,000 sq ft Abbey Quarter Masterplan
  • Fortwell Capital’s €300 million push into Ireland
  • Clúid’s additional 3,000 homes by the end of 2022
  • 268-unit Dublin Landings development
  • 342-home Griffith Avenue development
  • Plans for the €1.25bn earmarked for the LDA

We can’t wait to welcome you back to our physical face-to-face conferences – but we understand that safety will also be paramount and therefore to put you at ease we wanted to confirm some of the steps we’re putting in place to ensure we minimise any risk. The situation surrounding Covid-19 is ever changing however here’s an overview of steps and procedures we’ve put in place.

Condition of Entry

Delegates will have to show proof of their Covid status upon entry either in form of both vaccinations (first and second dose) or a negative NHS lateral flow test.

You will be asked to demonstrate this through showing an NHS Covid Pass – which can be gained by downloading the NHS App onto your smartphone. You can also download and show an offline version or print a copy of your status and show the printed version.

If you haven’t had both vaccine doses we advise that all delegates take an NHS Lateral Flow Test 48-hours before the event – you can order them directly to your address here.

If you were to report a positive test result before the event we expect that you would follow the correct Government guidelines. All of our physical events will be held virtually so you’ll be able to join the event or alternatively exchange your ticket to a future event.

Mask Wearing

The wearing of masks at our physical events will not be mandatory.

Social Distancing

There will not be a requirement for social distancing however we will have introduced a number of things at the event to help minimise risk.

Hand Sanitiser

Hand sanitiser will be installed in certain areas at the event.

Reception & Lanyards

The reception and check-in process has been simplified to reduce touch-points with step by step signs confirming the process on arrival. You will simply utilise an iPad to check-in which will print a badge off for you, before you get to choose a lanyard of choice.

Green – you’re happy to shake hands and have social contact, Orange – you’re happy to network but be more cautious and observe space, Red – you want to reduce social contact and networking as much as possible.

Other Safety Information

Depending on the venue we may also have sign-age for certain rights of way and doors may be left open to leave less touch-points across the venue including on doors/toilets.

We will have designated areas for drinks/rubbish to ensure these aren’t left around the venue, and all lunch will be provided in pre-prepared bags.

Hybrid Events

To ensure those who are uncertain about attending physical events can still gain access you will have the option of purchasing a physical or virtual ticket. The virtual ticket will enable you to view the event sessions, ask questions to the speakers, and private message/request video calls with those attendees who’re at the event physically.
