The Conference Ambassador Network is managed by Visit Derry as part of our ambitious strategy to attract more conference and events to the city. We work with an extensive network of medical, academic and corporate professionals who promote the city as a conference destination throughout their connections, colleagues and clients, and within their affiliations to professional bodies, associations, societies and institutes.
Ebrington Square, Derry
Since our prestigious year as the inaugural UK City of Culture 2013, our conference Ambassadors have helped us secure conferences and events worth over £13m to the local economy. Hosting a conference can help promote your organisation, cutting-edge research and product developments within your industry, build relationships with national and international colleagues, help you gain professional recognition for world class research and generate revenue to help support the local economy.
The team at Visit Derry will support you throughout the conference planning process, from preparing the initial bid document and hosting site inspections for your decision-making committee, to venue selection, delegate accommodation booking and creating wow factor gala dinner experiences.
By becoming a Conference Ambassador, you can play your part in helping us reach our target of one million visitors and generating £100m to the local economy by 2020.
