Over a billion pounds has been invested in the city’s tourism product over recent years, from world-class venues and experiences, to brand new hotels, bars and restaurants . The Belfast business tourism product is trusted and the team at Visit Belfast always go the extra mile for clients, that is why Belfast was crowned Best Events destination by C&IT two years in a row.

Lonely Planet hailed the city the ‘Best region to visit in the World’. The city loves winning awards, but the best accolade of all is the happiness and success of clients who place their trust in us to deliver outstanding experiences.

Conferences in the age of COVID

As a destination, safety has always been a key consideration, so whether you are an organiser or a delegate, your safety is our number 1 priority.

Space comes as standard when you choose Belfast and Northern Ireland as your conference destination. Every aspect of your delegate journey, from the airport to the hotel and conference venue is following the strictest protocols, from hygiene to social distancing. Northern Ireland’s tourism industry has signed up to a ‘We’re Good to Go’ UK wide charter that ensures all venues, hotels and suppliers are COVID prepared. The industry is slowly opening its doors and the city is gearing up to offer the warm welcome and incredible experiences it is known for in a responsible, safe and sensitive way.

Financial Support

A member of the Visit Belfast team will be able to assist and guide you through the process. Applicants will need to provide a previous conference budget and an expected income and expenditure for their Belfast event.

Awards of £5,000 – £100,000 available
