About the event

Mission-critical facility requirements are unique and place great demands on project teams to build sophisticated buildings for world class clients. Typically they are built to the most stringent standards and have rigorous and comprehensive programmes for planning, design, construction, commissioning, operation and maintenance.

Ireland is a global technology hub and home to the industry leaders from IT, cloud and data centres, biopharma, medical technology, gaming to financial services – and all of them increasingly require resilient, robust and efficient infrastructure and facilities.

bE-TECH will bring together the leading professionals involved in the consulting, financing, planning, design, construction, management and operations of mission critical buildings, to share their ideas, experience and solutions; to network, to discover new developments, to identify and exploit the latest market trends. It will be geared to the latest advancements and market trends in mission critical services for data centres, industrial, manufacturing, pharmaceutical facilities, laboratories, healthcare, utilities, telecom and financial institutions.

Projects often face obstacles due to the lack of the stakeholders' awareness and communication, and it takes professionals' effort to make the difference.
