By Sandy Guthrie18 April 2016
The 81st Euroconstruct Conference will be held in Dublin, Ireland, on 9 and 10 June, 2016, hosted by DKM Economic Consultants, the Irish member of the network of construction forecasters.
The conference will present the latest medium-term forecasts – to 2018 – for the 19 member economies of Euroconstruct and their construction sectors.
The theme for this conference is European Construction Prospects in a Low Interest Rate Environment, which will address the key medium-term challenges facing the industry.
The organisers said the Dublin conference would bring together the suppliers of materials, equipment and construction services with international customers, including builders, contractors and project managers.
It will be held at the Dublin Aviva Stadium Conference Centre on 10June, with a networking dinner the night before at the Guinness Storehouse.
Speakers lined up for the conference include global construction expert Professor Roger Flanagan, from the School of Construction Management & Engineering at the University of Reading, UK, and Andrew Cates, chief Eurozone economist at the Royal Bank of Scotland, London, who will present on the macroeconomic prospects in Europe.

Euroconstruct was established in 1974 by a number of specialised research institutes and consulting organisations as a study group for construction analysis and forecasting. It has since expanded from the core group to include almost all Western European countries (the European Union and EFTA) and a number of Eastern European states (EU-Accession countries).
The 80th Euroconstruct Conference was held in Budapest, Hungary, last December.
