The Impact of Covid-19 on Ireland’s Corporate Ecosystem

An overview of Dublin’s Office Market + Sustaining Ireland’s Enterprise Eco-system

As Dublin’s working world continues to see the impact of COVID-19, the next panel discussion in the Iconic Webinar Series aims to bring a real-time, informative and dynamic conversation with Commercial Real Estate (CRE), government & local organisations responsible for the development and growth of Irish enterprises in both the local & international markets.


Dublin’s Office Market Overview:
Marie Hunt, Head of Research for CBRE Ireland, will be discussing how the current crisis compares to the other cyclical downturns we have experienced, to what extent has this crisis accentuated structural trends that were happening anyway as well as giving an overview into Dublin’s Office Market, Signs of Recovery in the Eye of the Storm and why she predicts a ‘Short-Term Brutal, Medium-Term Positive’ impact.

Sustaining Ireland’s Enterprise Eco-system:
Throughout this webinar we will also be discussing stabilising, resetting and recovering from the impact of Covid-19 on Ireland’s enterprise market. Welcoming Mark Christal & Sven Spollen-Behrens from Government & local advocacy bodies Enterprise Ireland and Small Firms Association onto the panel, they will be discussing the relevant Economic Stimulus Measures, as well as their thought process on the Roadmap to Recovery. Including the economic stimulus plans & funding supports out there to help companies respond to Covid-19 and to get back to some semblance of normal trading over the coming months.


Paul Curely of IDA Ireland will lead this panel discussion on The Impact of Covid-19 on Ireland’s Corporate Ecosystem. Paul will explore how Ireland’s commercial property market has experienced a ‘lost quarter’ as a direct result of Covid-19 and how the market is slowly starting to emerge from what has been an unprecedented period for the global economy. Marie Hunt, Head of Research CBRE Ireland, will be sharing key industry insights into the take up of office space, as well as Office Development Activity. Mark Christal, Manager of the Regions and Entrepreneurship Division for Enterprise Ireland will be discussing the Economic Stimulus Measures including the economic stimulus plans & funding supports out there to help companies respond to Covid-19.
