A one-day conference
Live Virtual Event
Date: 15th September 2021
Housing in Ireland is incredibly topical at the moment, and it is almost universally acknowledged that, wherever you stand on the issue, a lot more needs to be done.
This annual conference has grown year after year, due to the practical advice and expert insights from some of the most forward-thinking and experienced speakers in the country. This event is shaping up to be our biggest yet.
We will hear from the Head of Affordable Housing in the Housing Agency on the new Affordable Housing Bill 2021, and we will examine exactly how the new Housing for All platform will help issues such as homelessness. We will be discussing investment funds in the housing market, and offering solutions to making cost rental and affordable housing work in Ireland. We will look at why there is such a delay between identifying a suitable site for development to being ‘shovel ready’, and we will discuss what you can expect in terms of house prices in Ireland in the near future.
Housing is a complex problem that defies easy solutions. We will look at what challenges are in the way of getting things done.
This is unique live virtual event from our own custom-built CMG Studios. Initial feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, with attendees praising the additional interactive elements, as well as increased Q&A opportunities throughout the day, giving you more opportunity to gain real practical insights on the key issues that are important to you.
This event will be of real interest to anyone in public and private sector including, local authorities, housing agencies, approved housing bodies, government departments, contractors, architects, designers, policy setters, legal executives, researchers, academics and semi state agencies to name just a few.
