We are good to go
Visit Belfast and their tourism and hospitality partners are working hard to ensure that the city is ready to welcome visitors back. Belfast is resilient, innovative and creative – and is adapting operations and implementing measures to provide people with the confidence to return to the city. Partnership is at the heart of everything Visit Belfast does – the industry is ready to open its doors and Belfast is gearing up to offer the warm welcome and incredible experiences the city is known for in a responsible, safe and sensitive way. Northern Ireland’s tourism industry has signed up to a ‘We are good to go’ UK wide charter that ensures partner organisations are COVID prepared in every aspect of the delegate journey. The scheme has been developed in partnership with Visit England, Visit Scotland and Visit Wales to ensure a common approach across the UK and will provide reassurance that safe working guidelines in relation to COVID-19 have been adopted.
A safe place to visit
Northern Ireland’s natural advantages of being an island, having a rural, low density population and a rigorous and timely lockdown meant that NI has had the fewest excess deaths in the UK. As a destination, safety has always been a key consideration, so whether you are an organiser or a delegate, your best interests are at heart. Belfast is a walkable city with a plethora of spacious venues and social programme options for you to choose from. Wide open spaces come as standard when you choose Belfast and Northern Ireland as your conference destination.
As government restrictions slowly start to lift, some of Belfast’s outdoor spaces, shops, facilities and visitor attractions are beginning to open their doors again. Many will open in stages, with reduced services, special times or new measures to make sure everyone stays safe, so here is a list of what is opening, how and when.
