Our commitment to your safety:

We have experienced the enthusiasm of returning to live in-person events this year, having safely and successfully hosted more than 10,000 executives to date globally. While we are thrilled to convene together to propel growth within CRE, COVID-19 remains a worldwide concern and Bisnow is committed to practicing safe protocols at our events. You can expect the following:


  • Everyone attending the event will be required to demonstrate proof of a recent negative lateral flow test result (within 36 hours) or evidence of their COVID-19 double vaccination status.
    Please note: you must complete your lateral flow test before arriving at the event. There are no testing facilities available on site.
  • Temperature checks may be conducted at entry.
  • Contact tracing procedures will be employed for any reported exposure.
  • Enhanced sanitisation protocols will be adhered to throughout the event space including regularly disinfecting surfaces throughout the event and hand sanitiser provided to all attendees.


As guidance evolves, we will provide regular updates regarding all further developments and changes. Thank you for your continued support for Bisnow's event programme, we look forward to hosting you soon to do what we do best: network, connect, and engage to do more business.

BTRAC is coming to Dublin!

With demand still outstripping supply in the Irish PRS market, there are opportunities for the taking.

The residential rental sector in Dublin is still in its infancy compared to other markets around the globe, and Ireland’s housing market continues to face challenges with changes in government policy and legislation. However, investor sentiment and activity in the Private-Rented Sector remains positive. In total €345M transacted across 15 deals in Q1 2021, compared to €101M in Q1 2020, Cushman & Wakefield data showed.


We’re excited to be bringing our full day premium event BTRAC to Dublin for the first time. This isn’t your average conference — the event will go beyond the realms of the Irish PRS sector. Join our expert speakers as they provide a comprehensive update on the future of PRS in Ireland - how to overcome the barriers, the creative financing strategies for acquisitions, design and development trends, and delivering sustainable projects.


  • The current state of the PRS market in Dublin — where’s the activity, who’s lending and who’s investing?
  • The kind of schemes international capital is targeting and the trends being seen in the equity and debt markets.
  • Delivering sustainable PRS — the strategies and solutions to meet the government's targets outlined in the Climate Action Bill.
  • Addressing the challenges of Ireland's planning legislation for the PRS market.
  • How value add and amenities  are evolving and how to integrate them into your schemes.
  • What current data is revealing and how to utilise the findings in the construction and management process.
  • What Dublin’s PRS market looks like into 2022 and beyond.


This will be a one of a kind, can't-miss Bisnow event. We hope to have you with us for a memorable event in November!
