About The National Property Summit 2020

Early new year predictions for the 2020 Irish property market included recovering house prices, more new builds, and a ‘Brexit Bounce’ benefit to the Irish economy. In February, data analysis revealed that we were right on track with a continued stabilisation in the market. But confidence was soon crushed with the arrival of Covid-19.

With major uncertainty ahead, no-one can predict the full impact of the pandemic, but experts agree that the pandemic will have long-term implications for many aspects of the property 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 Business Post annual Property Summit will focus on how to progress the sector during such unprecedented and turbulent times and will remain the foremost event for the property industry to come together to discuss the future. Featuring leading content, panel debates, keynotes and discussions, this conference is one that will look on how we can stabilize the industry and explore how we turn this crisis into an opportunity to learn, improve and better prepare for the future.

This event will bring together investors, developers and builders, finance providers and agents to discuss and explore the future prospects for the Irish property sector and practical solutions to overcoming its current challenges…

Topics to be discussed include:

  • The economic outlook: Brexit and post COVID-19 predictions
  • Rebuilding Ireland: An update
  • What’s the real impact of Covid-19 on valuations?
  • Has the commercial sector been changed indefinitely by the pandemic? Is this the catalyst for the end of the office?
  • Landlord and tenant disputes: Dealing with mounting unpaid rents leases, insurance and more
  • How will the debt markets and financing be affected by Covid-19?
  • Real estate finance: Plotting the future
  • Housing: How will we live now? How covid-19 will impact the Irish residential property sector
  • With a supply squeeze building up when will we balance housing demand with supply?
  • Sector analysis and outlook: Build-to-rent, co-living – does it have a future? Industrial and office development, hospitality, retail
  • Property investment: How the massive disruptions and behavior shifts caused by covid-19 are opening doors for proptech
  • At the climate change crossroads: Taking the right direction towards a sustainable future
