Josep Ramon Fontana
Catalonia Institute of Construction Technology (ITeC), Spain
Dr. Josep R Fontana is head of market research at ITeC and has more than 30 years of experience in the construction sector. In November last year, the publication of a mildly recessive housing forecast for 2023 and 2024 should have not taken anybody by surprise at all. Six months later, after the collapse of a couple of banks, should we keep playing it down or is it time to start worrying about the European residential sector? Josep Fontana will try to answer the question, bringing out the forecast re-visions and analysing them with the critical view of a witness of the housing melt-down of 2008.

Specialist for Construction and Real Estate Markets
ifo Institute, Germany
Ludwig Dorffmeister, industry specialist at the Munich-based ifo Institute, has been monitoring the construction sector in Germany for about one and a half decades now. For the market analysis, he can draw on a large number of in-house survey results, as well. In Amsterdam, he will speak about the European non-residential market. Last November, the EUROCONSTRUCT network predicted reaching the pre-Corona level finally in 2025, whereas the outlook for the new build segment was more cloudy. How have the assessments changed half a year later against the back-drop of the various influencing factors (construction prices, inflation, financing)?

Bjørn Erik Øye
Bjørn Erik Øye is the partner and co-founder of Prognosesenteret Norway and Swe-den. Economist and building engineer. More than 40 years of experience in analysing the European construction markets. Member of the Euroconstruct network for almost 30 years. In Amsterdam, he will speak about the civil engineering market. A part of the construction markets that has always been a safe haven when the economic cycles have tumbled the other sectors up and down. New challenges related to environmental issues combined with new technologies will perhaps lead to fundamental changes in the future needs for public infrastructure – which again will have huge impact on the type and size of the investment.
