… [The] city centre location and convenience to the region’s two airports have proven extremely beneficial to our international delegates – members can fly in and go straight to a meeting, hassle free.

The city has been extremely helpful and welcoming. I have been organising events for 13 years, and I found Belfast to be the friendliest host city. There is a real buzz - everyone knew about our conference and joined in to ensure that we, and our members, had a truly memorable experience.

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.
