As part of a programme-wide initiative with Enterprise Ireland, a series of “Meet the Buyer” events are held around the country offering small and medium-sized enterprises within the construction sector the opportunity to meet directly with the senior buyers within NDFA managed programmes.
An “enterprise zone” with support offered by local and county Enterprise Boards and by Intreo (the employment service of the Department of Social Protection) has been a key feature at these events.
There are no upcoming events planned at the moment.
Two “Meet the Buyer” events with Enterprise Ireland in relation to Bundle 2 of the Social Housing PPP Programme took place at the Charleville Part Hotel, Cork in October 2018 and July 2019.
A “Meet the Buyer” event with Enterprise Ireland and the preferred tenderer for Bundle 1 of the Social Housing PPP Programme took place in November 2018 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Blanchardstown, Dublin 15.
