About this Event

The Irish manufacturing sector employs over 250,000 people and accounts for 32% of Ireland’s GDP – significantly higher than the European average of 15% and Germany at 21%. Manufacturing also plays a key role in helping to address the regional imbalance in the Irish economy with more than 80% of operations outside of Dublin. The Irish manufacturing industry is characterised by a wide diversity of activities and Ireland is now globally recognised as an innovation hub across many sectors.

The Careers, Skills & Training Expo, being held at the Citywest Convention Centre, Dublin, on 29th & 30th January 2020, will highlight the rewarding career opportunities currently available throughout the Irish manufacturing industry and its associated supply chain.

Many sectors of the Irish manufacturing industry are being hampered by a skills shortage at a time when companies are trying to adjust to the disruptive changes generated by the digital revolution and the unfolding fourth Industrial revolution (Industry 4.0).

The Careers, Skills & Training Expo will also detail the training courses available to companies seeking to up-skill existing employees in using the new technologies and techniques required. The event has been designed to serve as an interface between industry and the Irish Universities, Institutes of Technology, Colleges and other education and training agencies.
