Why This Matters

As Dublin’s population is predicted to increase by over 30% by 2036, the demand for housing won’t fade away any time soon. In fact, the current situation has highlighted the importance of sustainable communities and housing more than ever before.  While there is limited data available to highlight how the nascent institutional private rented sector is faring in the face of the coronavirus, compared to other areas like office, retail and leisure, it is more than resilient, providing sustainable returns throughout challenging times. As we rebound in the new world, what is next for the growing sector? 


Please join Bisnow and our BTR experts from Hooke & MacDonald, Ires Reit, Ballymore, and DWS as we discuss everything from the impact of coronavirus on the Irish and European BTR market; to strategies for lettings and residents engagement; and government support for ensuring a healthy supply in the future. 


There will also be plenty of time for questions. Can't attend live? You should still register! We'll be sending out the recording to all registrants.
