Kellie While, Head of 7digital Creative

It was the best event outside London that we’ve done. The way everyone bought into it wholeheartedly, it was off the scale to what we’ve done in any region before.

ICC Belfast has a world-class reputation and works proudly with partners throughout the City of Belfast to deliver event experiences like no other. Over the past two decades the venue has hosted some of the city’s highest profile events including presidential visits by Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, the Royal College of Nursing Congress 2018 and the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
