Construction breakfast

Poland's construction sector is to be powering ahead, growing at an annualised rate of over 20%.

As EU-funded infrastructure spending hits its stride, businesses are seeing negative aspects to the building boom. Rising labour and material costs mean that contracts at last year's prices cannot be profitably realised and bankruptcies are on the rise. How sustainable is the current boom? How is the situation affecting the delivery of new commercial real estate projects on the market? Is demand for new office, retail and industrial space driven by balanced growth across the economy? How are order books shaping up? What are firms doing to attract and retail the best people in a tight labour market?

The format of the breakfast meeting is a round-table open discussion, with no presentations - the focus is on exchange of market insight between participants and sectoral networking with a view to business development. The meeting is for architects, engineers, contractors, developers, estate agents - everyone from the sector is welcome to contribute and enrich the discussion.

The meeting will be held under the Chatham House Rule - whatever is said at the meeting can be repeated outside, but not attributed to the speaker.
