This event has grown out of the biennial national event for the Hospitality Industry – Hospitality Expo which itself targets owners, managers and proprietors of hotels, restaurants, pubs, cafes and venues who are looking for the necessary resources to build, extend and renovate both new and existing properties.
Fit Out Expo and Hospitality Fit Out have been introduced in response to the huge growth in the broader construction sector generally and the hospitality sector in particular.
The volume of construction output in Ireland is forecast to reach €25 billion to €30 billion by 2020, which is equivalent to 8.8% of GDP
Overall, building and construction investment is forecast to increase by about 12% in both 2018 and 2019 and by 9.4% in 2020
With growth at this level careful planning, product and material sourcing must be combined with assiduous research to achieve the design concept envisaged for each project.
