Hot Topics

Dinner Dance 2018

Here, you will find information on news that is current in our industry and, in particular, to our Members.

In the industry news, you will learn about subjects that are very relevant to IMQS Members as well as to the industry at large. For example, Brexit will be a topic of major interest to our Members for the next few years.

The Annual Dinner Dance is a huge occasion in the IMQS calendar and is a highly regarded event for renewing old acquaintances, making new friends and catching up with old ones in a fun and convivial atmosphere.

The Annual Review is another hot topic amongst our Members. It goes in-depth into the matters that have concerned our Members over the past 12 months. We keep abreast of each other’s industry, be it mining, quarrying or construction.

Brexit- How Will It Affect The Extractive Industries In Ireland?

“Unavoidable” is the first thought; one can’t avoid exposure to the “B” word and it seems all-encompassing in the media, in business and political circles.

What it may mean for extractive industries in Ireland is interesting, made more complex because of the two jurisdictions on the island.

The full effects of Brexit on the Irish mining and quarrying industries, to say the least, will be very interesting because of the fact that we operate under two jurisdictions. Preparation is key to coming out successfully at the end of the process.
