Event description

Description

Dublin Institute of Technology’s annual Regeneration Conference takes place in DIT Grangegorman on Friday afternoon, 9th December between 12 and 5pm. This year we have some great speakers from Rotterdam, Belfast, Dublin and Galway. They will discuss the immediate need to provide affordable housing; refurbish existing buildings in cooperation with communities, as well as tackle the global challenge of climate change.

The speaker presentations will be fifteen minutes long and there’ll be plenty of time for questions and discussion afterwards. We’ll also fit in a whistlestop walking tour of the new award-winning DIT Grangegorman campus. We start with sandwiches and refreshments, and after the conference concludes you’re invited for a craft beer in the Orchard Inn on Grangegorman Lower, close to the venue.

St. Laurence’s is in the heart of the new Grangegorman Campus. There’s ample bike parking on site, and the new campus is a few minutes walk from the 46A bus route on the North Circular Road. It is just over ten minutes walk from the Luas Red Line Smithfield stop. There is no parking on site, but Smithfield car park is ten minutes walk away on Queen Street.
