    The Theme of this year’s event is: Preparing for Brexit- Understanding the Key challenges and Opportunities.

    The Import, Export and FDI Conference & Expo, is being held on Sep 13th 2017 in Citywest Exhibition Centre.

    The Import, Export & Foreign Direct Investment Conference is an annual event focusing on strategic decisions facing our policy makers to maintain Ireland’s position as a key location for global trade and investment.

    This year will focus on the key issues facing Ireland pre and post Brexit. The Government’s approach must be measured, multi-faceted and nuanced taking into account both the upsides and downsides of the UK leaving the EU. The food industry is potentially the single biggest loser while the financial services sector may be in for a windfall. Sectors such as Tourism, Legal, Tax, Tech, Pharma and Regulations will all have opportunities and threats to overcome.
