Taking place April 1718 at Molloy’s Quarry, Co. Offaly, the event will showcase over €50 million of the latest construction, quarry, recycling and demolition equipment in a working environment, alongside over 100 exhibitors.

Up to 10,000 industry leaders and professionals are expected to attend across the two days, and with the event drawing closer its organisers are witnessing a significant surge in demand.

Adrian Madden, Head of Sales (Asset Finance) for Close Brothers Commercial Finance said: “It’s no surprise that the show is generating substantial interest among Ireland’s construction and quarry sectors.

“The event offers an unrivalled opportunity for business owners to network and view the latest technology in their industry, and it’s coming at a time when confidence appears to be growing among Irish firms.

“The latest Close Brothers Business Barometer found that over 80 per cent of businesses in Ireland believe that the worst of the economic downturn is now behind us, while an equal number plan to invest in their operations in 2015.

“The outlook is positive and as activity increases, so the demand for machinery will continue to rise.

“The CQMS is taking place at a critical time to help cater to this growing need. After weathering the period of recession in our economy the sold out exhibition space and the number of visitors expected reflect the ambition that is re-emerging among Irish firms.

“The market is moving forward and businesses of all sizes need to ensure that they are in a position to respond, whether it is through the acquisition of new machinery and equipment, or by improving their cash flow.

“Not only will the CQMS showcase the latest equipment, but for businesses with any questions or queries there will also be a host of industry experts on hand to offer support. Our experienced team will be present throughout the event to help advise business owners on sustainable and bespoke funding solutions for equipment and machinery of any size,” Mr Madden added.
