EXPO in the Market Place 2017

March 10, 2017

This year we are delighted to have a full range of support and supply services represented at our Conference EXPO in the Market Place on 31st March & 1st April 2017 in the O’Brien Centre in UCD Dublin.

We will also have a number of Quality Practice Spaces for you to visit on site. These spaces will be developed by our Practice Team in conjunction with the toy and furniture exhibitors, and are really worth seeing and chatting to the team about.
