Thanks to significant investment in visitor and conference amenities in recent years, Northern Ireland is fast becoming the place to stage events, hold conferences and host corporate incentive groups.With three airports and two seaports, Northern Ireland possesses excellent transport links with the UK, Europe and the rest of the world.
Furthermore, in 2009 leading travel guide publishers Frommer’s listed Northern Ireland in the top 12 destinations to visit.This joins the Lonely Planet accolade that tipped Northern Ireland as a “must see destination” and described Belfast as one of the “top ten cities on the rise”
Having fast become a first class business tourism destination, Belfast has built up a highly competitive and value for money conference offer.The city now attracts many prestigious events, exhibitions and meetings.
Northern Ireland offers much more than vibrant cities, first class hotels and convention centres however. It also offers real value for money at a time when businesses still need professional, top class facilities but within budget.The focus though remains on quality, customer service and delivering unique experiences for visitors.
