By Sandy Guthrie26 May 2016

Places are still available for the 81st Euroconstruct Conference, which will be held in Dublin, Ireland, on 9 and 10 June, 2016, and will present the latest medium-term forecasts – to 2018 – for the 19 member economies of Euroconstruct and their construction sectors.

The conference is being hosted by DKM Economic Consultants, the Irish member of the network of construction forecasters.

The theme is European Construction Prospects in a Low Interest Rate Environment, which will address the key medium-term challenges facing the industry.

Speakers will 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.

Other speakers will include Josep Ramon Fontana, senior researcher at ITEC (the Catalonia Institute of Construction Technology), who will discuss the recovery in Spain, Portugal and Italy. János Gáspár, director of Buildecon in Hungary, will address the prospects for Eastern European construction markets.

Other presentations will look at France, Belgium and the Netherlands; the UK and Ireland; Germany, Austria and Switzerland; and Nordic countries.

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 10 June, with a networking dinner the night before at the Guinness Storehouse.

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).
