Virtual Summit

1st October 2020

Introduction

Like many other industries in Ireland and around the world, the global COVID-19 pandemic has caused the construction sector to witness a decline the likes of which has never been seen before, even paling in comparison to the crash of 10 years ago. With tremendous pressure on global supply chains, legal implications, new health and safety regulations for construction sites and much more, it has never been more important for the industry to rally together and look for solutions to overcome some of the biggest challenges the industry has ever faced.

While the fall-out from the effects of the pandemic is far from clear and no-one can predict its full impact, many experts agree that COVID-19 will have long-term implications for many aspects of the construction industry. However, is it possible to consider this crisis from another perspective and find opportunities for our industry to learn from, develop new ways of working and prepare for the long-term?

This year’s CIF Annual Conference will focus on how to revive the sector during such unprecedented and turbulent times and will remain the foremost event for the industry to come together to discuss the future. Featuring leading content, panel debates, keynotes and discussions, this conference is one that will look to rebuild the industry and explore how we turn this crisis into an opportunity to learn, improve and better prepare for the future.

To adapt to the current environment and the growing demand for delegates to enjoy the conference experience in an online manner, the CIF Annual Conference 2020 will come to you as a first of its kind virtual event. While delegates will join in from the comfort of their homes and offices across Ireland and around the world, the event itself will be broadcast live from our dedicated studio in Dublin. Many of our speakers and panellists will appear live on stage, while our international keynotes and participants will be video-conferenced in to join the conversation.

Delegates will have the opportunity to step into the unique virtual summit environment, which includes access to the main virtual conference stage for the full day, live speaker & panel Q&A sessions, a virtual exhibition hall, copies of presentations & content post-event, as well as the opportunity to network, connect and chat with fellow online attendees, speakers and partners in real time.

 

 

Topics at CIF 2020 include:

  • Resetting amid COVID-19
  • What’s the economic outlook in the short, medium and long-term?
  • Could COVID-19 be the catalyst for the shift to modular construction?
  • How will the pandemic accelerate change in construction and our built environment?
  • The next normal in construction: How disruption is shaping the world’s largest eco-system
  • Re-imagining the way we work
