WHAT: CIF Network West
WHERE: Galway
WHEN: November 2

This year’s CIF Network West event took place in Galway’s Galmont Hotel where guests had the opportunity to hear from some of the industry’s leading speakers.

The first speaker, Kate English from Deloitte, gave some very interesting insights into economic statistics and what they are telling us.

She was followed by John O’Regan from AECOM who gave a very comprehensive overview of the major regional projects that will hopefully take place over the next year or more.

Finally, Colm Ryan from MKO Ireland, gave an overview of the legislative changes that have taken place in our planning system over the last five years.

Guests also heard from our CIF President, Joe Conway, Independent TD, Deputy Sean Canney and CIF Director General, Hubert Fitzpatrick.

The evening concluded with a drinks and canapés reception where our guests had an opportunity to network with one another and our speakers.

Network West was sponsored by Construction Professionals Skillnet.
