The iconic six-floor building, featuring nine interpretive and interactive galleries that explore the sights, sounds, smells and stories of Titanic, as well as the City and people which made her, is an unmissable experience which brings history to life in an unforgettable way. [content] =>

Located beside the Titanic Slipways, the Harland and Wolff Drawing Offices and Hamilton Graving Dock – the very place where Titanic was designed, built and launched in 1912, Titanic Belfast tells the story of the Titanic, from her conception in Belfast in the early 1900s, through her construction and launch, to its maiden voyage and subsequent place in history.

The self-guided Titanic Experience extends over nine interpretive and interactive galleries, which explore the sights, sounds, smells and stories of RMS Titanic, as well as the city and people who made her.

On entering, visitors can step back in time learn about the thriving industries and exciting design innovations that led to the creation of RMS Titanic - the largest and most luxurious ship in the world in Belfast before passing through the original Harland & Wolff gates to continue their journey to the Shipyard and the dark ride that uses special effects, animations and full-scale reconstructions to recreate the reality of shipbuilding in the early 1900s.

There’s not much time to catch your breath, as you’re greeted with a panoramic eagle’s eye view of the actual slipways on which both the Titanic and the Olympic once rested as well as experience the excitement of launch day in 1911. Then it’s all aboard to experience an eclectic range of exhibits, models, interactive databases and elaborate computer generated imagery which illustrate the ship’s opulent fit-out including exact replicas of the cabins, and journeys through the dining areas, the ship’s engine rooms, working interiors and deck promenade, where visitors can see and hear the oceans and feel the engines rumbling.

Guests then move on to paying tribute to the loss of this magnificent ship and the 1,500 men, women and children who lost their lives on her tragic maiden voyage, experience the aftermath, the inquiries and the sensational news reports of the time. The story is then brought up to the present with the discovery of the wreck and into the future with live links to contemporary undersea exploration.

Complete your Titanic Experience with a visit to the world’s last remaining White Star vessel and RMS Titanic’s original tender ship – SS Nomadic. Walk the decks, explore the ship, and take journey through over 100 years of authentic maritime and social history.

Guests can also take in the buzz of Titanic Belfast’s grand atrium by relaxing in The Galley Café or Bistro 401, enjoying a range of speciality teas, luxury coffees and local delicacies featuring the very best of local Northern Irish produce and inspired by RMS Titanic. Souvenirs can be picked up at the Titanic Store, before taking a walk down the historic slipways where Titanic and her sister ship Olympic were built and first launched into the water, exploring the life-size outlines of the ships embedded in the ground and illuminated at night by blue light, or have a seat at one of the benches positioned exactly as they would have been on board the deck of Titanic.

So whether you come for the architecture, the history and heritage or the unique visitor experience, by bus, bike, walking, segway or tram tour, a stop off at Titanic Belfast is a highly recommended highlight of any trip to Belfast.

The iconic six-floor building, featuring nine interpretive and interactive galleries that explore the sights, sounds, smells and stories of Titanic, as well as the City and people which made her, is an unmissable experience which brings history to life in an unforgettable way. [conference_venue_description] =>

Located beside the Titanic Slipways, the Harland and Wolff Drawing Offices and Hamilton Graving Dock – the very place where Titanic was designed, built and launched in 1912, Titanic Belfast tells the story of the Titanic, from her conception in Belfast in the early 1900s, through her construction and launch, to its maiden voyage and subsequent place in history.

The self-guided Titanic Experience extends over nine interpretive and interactive galleries, which explore the sights, sounds, smells and stories of RMS Titanic, as well as the city and people who made her.

On entering, visitors can step back in time learn about the thriving industries and exciting design innovations that led to the creation of RMS Titanic - the largest and most luxurious ship in the world in Belfast before passing through the original Harland & Wolff gates to continue their journey to the Shipyard and the dark ride that uses special effects, animations and full-scale reconstructions to recreate the reality of shipbuilding in the early 1900s.

There’s not much time to catch your breath, as you’re greeted with a panoramic eagle’s eye view of the actual slipways on which both the Titanic and the Olympic once rested as well as experience the excitement of launch day in 1911. Then it’s all aboard to experience an eclectic range of exhibits, models, interactive databases and elaborate computer generated imagery which illustrate the ship’s opulent fit-out including exact replicas of the cabins, and journeys through the dining areas, the ship’s engine rooms, working interiors and deck promenade, where visitors can see and hear the oceans and feel the engines rumbling.

Guests then move on to paying tribute to the loss of this magnificent ship and the 1,500 men, women and children who lost their lives on her tragic maiden voyage, experience the aftermath, the inquiries and the sensational news reports of the time. The story is then brought up to the present with the discovery of the wreck and into the future with live links to contemporary undersea exploration.

Complete your Titanic Experience with a visit to the world’s last remaining White Star vessel and RMS Titanic’s original tender ship – SS Nomadic. Walk the decks, explore the ship, and take journey through over 100 years of authentic maritime and social history.

Guests can also take in the buzz of Titanic Belfast’s grand atrium by relaxing in The Galley Café or Bistro 401, enjoying a range of speciality teas, luxury coffees and local delicacies featuring the very best of local Northern Irish produce and inspired by RMS Titanic. Souvenirs can be picked up at the Titanic Store, before taking a walk down the historic slipways where Titanic and her sister ship Olympic were built and first launched into the water, exploring the life-size outlines of the ships embedded in the ground and illuminated at night by blue light, or have a seat at one of the benches positioned exactly as they would have been on board the deck of Titanic.

Craft beer heaven

We serve our craft beers in a range of sizes, so if you don’t fancy committing to a pint you can try a half pint or a 7oz taster glass. And if you and your friends want to try a few at once, why not go for a ‘flight’ of four taster-sized glasses for just £6?

Our 2l ‘growlers’ are perfect for sharing. Fill it up with a beer of your choice from one of our rotating taps. If you can’t finish it, take it home with you to enjoy! There is an initial £10 deposit for one of our growler vessels – bring it back at any time to recover your deposit or retain it as a keepsake.

Look out for our offers too – beer of the month, spirit of the month and more. All pricing and more information is available from our friendly staff and on the peg board above the bar.

Food

Food is available from noon to 10pm every day (12.30pm-10pm on Sunday), featuring traditional Irish cuisine, light bites and a fine array of contemporary fare, from juicy steaks and Scooby Snack burgers to tasty Halloumi salads.

Great music

There’s entertainment too – a carefully curated playlist provides the backdrop to board games and catch-ups during the week, and at weekends we have some of Belfast’s most talented DJs on hand, providing a soundtrack of post-punk, dark disco and shimmering synth-pop. And entry is always free.

So come on in, take a seat and enjoy the unique atmosphere while you enjoy the best range of craft beers that Belfast has to offer.

[conference_venue_description] =>

Northern Ireland’s new 7,000m2 state-of-the-art conference facility offers a brand new event experience for up to 5,000 delegates.

No matter what type of event you are organising: conference, awards ceremony, exhibition or a business meeting, the new Belfast Waterfront offers everything you need and more to make your event the best yet.

In the heart of the city

Situated on the banks of the River Lagan in the heart of the city, Belfast Waterfront boasts stunning riverside views and easy access to transport links, hotels, restaurants and attractions.

Within a 10 minute drive from George Best Belfast City Airport, delegates will arrive for their meeting relaxed and stress-free at this fantastic new facility.

“… Belfast Waterfront’s 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.” Dr Thomas Kauffels, the chair of European Association of Zoos and Aquariums (EAZA)

Tailored to meet your needs.

Our new 7,000m2 facility features over 30 stylish spaces which can accommodate up to 5,000 delegates at any one time:

Equipped to the highest specification each space can be shaped to suit your unique requirements.

The addition of two multipurpose halls, together measuring over 2,500m2, up to 6 additional meeting rooms, and a stunning 660m2 riverside foyer can cater for an even wider range of events. Whilst our spectacular 2,200-seat auditorium, 360-seat studio and 14 breakout spaces are still much sought after for large conferences and business meetings.

Going the extra mile

Our flexibility extends well beyond bricks-and-mortar. Our wide range of support services can be tailored to help you deliver an event with that all important ‘wow’ factor. We are always looking for new and better ways to deliver events. You could say that innovation and creativity are ingrained in our DNA. And so you can count on us to find a solution that fits you perfectly.

So let us spoil you with our wide choice of stylish and flexible event space, wow you with our locally inspired cuisine, dazzle you with the latest event technology and embrace you with our warm hospitality.

“As for the new Belfast Waterfront, it exceeded our expectations and their team, along with that of Visit Belfast, have gone above and beyond to facilitate and enable us to host a successful event here – I couldn’t say enough. The facility is brand new and is well-equipped to help foster a supportive learning environment, for our members to learn from each other and leading experts. In essence, we want repeat business and the quality is here.” Brian Branch, President and CEO of World Council of Credit Unions.

For almost 20 years clients have entrusted us with their events.

We have successfully built a world-class reputation for delivering outstanding events and our leading status and extensive range of flexible spaces have helped secure many of the city’s highest profile events including presidential visits by US President Barack Obama and Former President Bill Clinton, the 2013 World Police and Fire Games, the 2014 Giro d'Italia, the biggest Game of Thrones Exhibition in 2015 and this year the BBC Good Food Show Northern Ireland.

We guarantee that once you experience our service, like The British Medical Association, Royal College of Nursing and EY, you will want to return.

[content] => The Belfast Charitable Society was founded in August 1752 in a tavern called The George Inn on the corner of North Street and John Street, Belfast. The newly formed society was made up of a group of leading Belfast citizens who played a key role in the development of Belfast and were at the forefront of providing welfare for its people.
The Poor House in Belfast was a safe haven for the poorest and neediest in society.  The Belfast Charitable Society were to the fore in providing the essentials such as food as shelter, but they also provided training, education and skills which were to enable people live independently once more.

The Belfast Charitable Society would go on to be responsible for the origins of social welfare, funeral services and municipal burial grounds, Belfast’s first hospital, the provision of clean water and the creation of a fledgling police service.

The iconic six-floor building, featuring nine interpretive and interactive galleries that explore the sights, sounds, smells and stories of Titanic, as well as the City and people which made her, is an unmissable experience which brings history to life in an unforgettable way. [content] =>

Located beside the Titanic Slipways, the Harland and Wolff Drawing Offices and Hamilton Graving Dock – the very place where Titanic was designed, built and launched in 1912, Titanic Belfast tells the story of the Titanic, from her conception in Belfast in the early 1900s, through her construction and launch, to its maiden voyage and subsequent place in history.

The self-guided Titanic Experience extends over nine interpretive and interactive galleries, which explore the sights, sounds, smells and stories of RMS Titanic, as well as the city and people who made her.

On entering, visitors can step back in time learn about the thriving industries and exciting design innovations that led to the creation of RMS Titanic - the largest and most luxurious ship in the world in Belfast before passing through the original Harland & Wolff gates to continue their journey to the Shipyard and the dark ride that uses special effects, animations and full-scale reconstructions to recreate the reality of shipbuilding in the early 1900s.

There’s not much time to catch your breath, as you’re greeted with a panoramic eagle’s eye view of the actual slipways on which both the Titanic and the Olympic once rested as well as experience the excitement of launch day in 1911. Then it’s all aboard to experience an eclectic range of exhibits, models, interactive databases and elaborate computer generated imagery which illustrate the ship’s opulent fit-out including exact replicas of the cabins, and journeys through the dining areas, the ship’s engine rooms, working interiors and deck promenade, where visitors can see and hear the oceans and feel the engines rumbling.

Guests then move on to paying tribute to the loss of this magnificent ship and the 1,500 men, women and children who lost their lives on her tragic maiden voyage, experience the aftermath, the inquiries and the sensational news reports of the time. The story is then brought up to the present with the discovery of the wreck and into the future with live links to contemporary undersea exploration.

Complete your Titanic Experience with a visit to the world’s last remaining White Star vessel and RMS Titanic’s original tender ship – SS Nomadic. Walk the decks, explore the ship, and take journey through over 100 years of authentic maritime and social history.

Guests can also take in the buzz of Titanic Belfast’s grand atrium by relaxing in The Galley Café or Bistro 401, enjoying a range of speciality teas, luxury coffees and local delicacies featuring the very best of local Northern Irish produce and inspired by RMS Titanic. Souvenirs can be picked up at the Titanic Store, before taking a walk down the historic slipways where Titanic and her sister ship Olympic were built and first launched into the water, exploring the life-size outlines of the ships embedded in the ground and illuminated at night by blue light, or have a seat at one of the benches positioned exactly as they would have been on board the deck of Titanic.

So whether you come for the architecture, the history and heritage or the unique visitor experience, by bus, bike, walking, segway or tram tour, a stop off at Titanic Belfast is a highly recommended highlight of any trip to Belfast.

Souvenirs can be picked up at the Titanic Store, before taking a walk down the historic slipways where Titanic and her sister ship Olympic were built and first launched into the water, exploring the life-size outlines of the ships embedded in the ground and illuminated at night by blue light, or have a seat at one of the benches positioned exactly as they would have been on board the deck of Titanic.

So whether you come for the architecture, the history and heritage or the unique visitor experience, by bus, bike, walking, segway or tram tour, a stop off at Titanic Belfast is a highly recommended highlight of any trip to Belfast.

See sites including The Dark Hedges, Carnlough and Lordsport Harbours and The Giants Causeway. [content] =>

Whilst the hugely popular Game of Thrones TV series, adapted from George Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels, is filmed all over Europe, many of the key locations are based in Northern Ireland. Highly recommended on Trip Advisor, during the Game of Thrones Tour in Belfast you will get the chance to see 7 iconic sites from Series 1 to 4 from your very own Maester.

As your local guide, a fan of both the books and TV series, the Maester will discuss information from the Game of Thrones series, recall incredible tales of legend and local history that could come right out of the books. If that’s not enough perhaps some inside gossip on the cast and crew.

Departing from central Belfast, you will also get to explore some of the gems of Northern Ireland such as Carrick-a-Rede, Ballintoy Harbour and the Giant’s Causeway. You will be able to walk into the caves where Melisandre of Asshai gave birth to her ‘shadow assassin’ who went on to slay Renly Baratheon.

Hear tales of the power struggles, battles and trysts between the noble families of Westeros, and learn gossip about the morally dubious King Joffrey Baratheon.

The next destination is Lordsport, to witness where Theon Greyjoy would return to his family and betray those who raised him. However you will then visit the Camp of Renly Baratheon of Storm’s End and stand at the victory of Brienne over the Knight of Flowers. A crucial part of any trip to Northern Ireland is to see the UNESCO-listed Giant’s Causeway. Although it hasn’t been featured in Game of Thrones, the spectacular site is a must see where you will have approx 1 ½ hours to explore.

The journey back to Belfast, includes one final stop at the Dark Hedges, with its natural archway of intertwined trees. The road is one of Northern Ireland’s most photographed locations and the place where Arya Stark dressed as a boy to escape from King’s Landing. Pose for pictures, and then continue your journey back to Belfast where you will be dropped back in the centre of the city.

As there is walking as part of the tour it may not be suitable for those with mobility problems.

Tour departs from outside the Visit Belfast Welcome Centre.

[content] =>

The bar is unique in its ownership as it is owned by The Belfast Unemployed Resource Centre. The Resource Centre's managers had always relied on various grants to fund its work, when in the mid-ninties, they came up with the idea of generating some of their own funds by going into business... And why not a pub! John Hewitt, the late poet, socialist and Freeman of Belfast officially opened the Resource Centre on Mayday 1983, hence the name of the bar.

Having such a close relationship with the arts in Belfast, The John Hewitt naturally progressed to becoming a popular venue for quality, live music. The bar being very much traditional in style lent itself to traditional music sessions almost without planning. And from there its name was established as a venue for various styles of good, live music. The full house sign is seen regularly for gigs as diverse as Jazz, Ulster Scots Folk or Cajun.

[content] =>

The city of Belfast isn't short of a great pint of Guinness, but did you know that the Guinness brewers at St James's Gate also have an experimental brewery?

For over 100 years, the master brewers have used The Open Gate Brewery as a licence to discover new recipes, reinterpret classic ones and experiment with new flavours to bring exciting new beers to the Guinness family.

In 2015, St James's Gate opened the doors of this brewery to the public to savour these unique brews, including the 1516 Pilsner, Chocolate and Vanilla Stout and Strawberry Porter. Following its success, they are now taking their next step by extending some of the products of The Open Gate Brewery to a number of Belfast bars, beginning with the Rye Pale Ale and offering a new brew every second month. We've selected some of the best places in Belfast to enjoy these new brews on tap.

The bar is instantly recognisable by the security cage on its front door, a relic from the 1980s which remains as a tribute to the city's social history.

Described as "a hidden gem that oozes old traditional values", it is popular with both the locals and visitors to the city and is famous for a bowl of homemade Irish stew, served with a pint of Guinness.

Conference Partners was awarded the ‘Best Conference by an Agency Conference Organiser’ at the ABPCO Excellence Awards 2016. The announcement was made during the ABPCO Chairmen’s Lunch & Excellence Awards in Manchester Central before an audience of 80 association professionals on Friday, 9th December 2016.

Conference Partners was shortlisted to present their submission on the delivery of one of Europe’s leading science conferences, the EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF) 2016 and was awarded based on the event’s lasting impact and attendee votes secured on the day. In partnership with the University of Manchester, Manchester City Council supported by Marketing Manchester, local government, the European Commission and many commercial organisations, Conference Partners successfully delivered ESOF 2016 in Manchester Central between 23 and 27 July. The UK has a world renowned reputation for scientific endeavour, medical discoveries, innovative technologies and an entrepreneurial spirit and this was the first time that ESOF was held in a UK city, attracting 3,542 delegates from 80 countries, 800 international speakers and 64 exhibitors.

For 4 days, this global gathering of Nobel laureates, leading researchers, policy makers, business leaders, international media and general public enjoyed a rich platform for debate and exchange of ideas on a variety of topical issues. The conference featured keynote addresses delivered by renowned Manchester physicist, presenter and author, Professor Brian Cox, UK national treasure, Sir David Attenborough and a live video link with Tim Peake, a UK astronaut.

Conference Partner’s Managing Director, Nicola McGrane said: “The ABPCO Excellence Awards celebrates the demonstration of excellence and leadership in association conference and event organisation, so it is a genuine honour for Conference Partners to receive this accolade. We believe ESOF 2016 topped its forerunners based on exceptional planning, management and implementation but most of all, its impact in terms of delegate satisfaction, cost-effectiveness and legacy to the city of Manchester. The most rewarding element for Conference Partners was the successful collaboration between the city stakeholders, industry, academia and the professional suppliers who helped us to deliver the event and the collective talent that worked together to create ESOF 2016, the most successful conference in the history of the EuroScience Open Forums”.

[meta_title] => [meta_keywords] => [meta_description] => [content] =>

Titanic Belfast has been crowned the ‘World’s Leading Tourist Attraction’ at the prestigious World Travel Awards in the Maldives.

Having already beaten the Colosseum, the Acropolis and the Eiffel Tower to become Europe's official Leading Tourist Attraction, Titanic Belfast sailed its way to victory to become the World’s Leading Tourist Attraction.

With over 1 million votes cast from over 216 countries in the awards, known as the ‘Tourism Oscars’, Titanic Belfast was awarded the World’s Leading Tourist Attraction title. It beat off stiff competition from eight global finalists, including Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, the Las Vegas Strip, USA, Machu Picchu, Peru and Guinness Storehouse, Ireland. It is the first time an attraction from Ireland, North or South, has won the prestigious accolade.

Tim Husbands MBE, Titanic Belfast’s Chief Executive, said; “Over the past few years, we have continued to go from strength to strength but to be voted the World’s Leading Tourist Attraction by both the industry and the public for excellence and for our original product, is really the jewel in our crown. We are delighted that this award firmly shines a spotlight not only on Titanic Belfast but Belfast and Northern Ireland, and celebrates our authentic insight and connection to RMS Titanic.

“The Titanic story captures hearts and minds throughout the world and at Titanic Belfast, this is no exception. Our interpretation of the story and ability to engage with visitors on many different levels has been fundamental in winning this award. With the award, we hope to attract more tourists to Northern Ireland to discover it. A huge thank you to our staff and all our supporters that voted, locally and across the world, to help us reach this iconic goal of being the World’s Leading Tourist Attraction.”

Northern Ireland got behind Titanic Belfast in the bid to become ‘King of the World’, with the public, industry partners, well-known personalities, politicians, sports stars and businesses providing their support to put the local landmark on par with previous winners including the Taj Mahal, Las Vegas Strip and the Pyramids of Egypt.

First Minister the Rt. Hon. Arlene Foster, said: “In just four short years, Titanic Belfast has become an iconic tourist ‘must see’, attracting over three million visitors from all over the world.
 
“We always knew that in Titanic Belfast, we were home to a world class attraction that would become a global brand. While it’s no surprise to me it has been recognised in this way, it is a wonderful achievement to win the ‘world’s best’ accolade ahead of other venues like Machu Picchu and the Abu Dhabi’s Ferrari World.
 
“I had the privilege as Tourism Minister of being involved with the project since its inception, and this award is further proof that the investment and imagination that went into this attraction keeps paying dividends for the whole of Northern Ireland.
 
“I congratulate Tim Husbands and his entire team for the hard work and professionalism which has put Titanic Belfast, quite literally, on top of the world.”

The deputy First Minister, Martin McGuinness said: “This is terrific news for Titanic Belfast and will help in our global pitch to make the north of Ireland one of the world’s top tourism destinations. 
 
“The Titanic story is well known but it is greatly enhanced and enriched by the visitor experience at Titanic Belfast.
 
“I commend Tim Husbands, Titanic Belfast’s Chief Executive and all his team who are the face of Titanic Belfast. The welcome and hospitality they provide to all visitors who walk through the door is an important part of what we have to offer.
 
“Rest assured whether it is at home or abroad we will take every opportunity to promote the award winning Titanic Belfast.”

Kerrie Sweeney, Chief Executive of Titanic Foundation Limited, the charity that owns the attraction, commented; “This year has been one of the most successful to date for Titanic Belfast from welcoming its three-millionth visitor, winning the European award and now positioned at the forefront of global tourism. We would like to say a heartfelt thanks to all the dedicated and talented staff at Titanic Belfast who help deliver an unforgettable experience for all our visitors, the future is certainly bright for Titanic Belfast and Titanic Quarter as a maritime destination.”

This year, Titanic Belfast has welcomed over 84% of its visitors from outside Northern Ireland and  has been described by The Guardian as "an inspiring testament to the Titanic and the city that built it". More than three million people from around the world have already visited Titanic Belfast since opening in 2012, underpinning Belfast and Northern Ireland's growing credentials as an unrivalled visitor destination, supporting thousands of jobs and a thriving hospitality sector.

The accreditation for the hotel on Great Victoria Street is bestowed at an exciting time following its recent investment and completion of £2million refurbishments and approval on planning permission for a £6million extension to meet the continuing rise in visitors seeking luxury accommodation in the city.

Speaking about the five-star announcement, The Fitzwilliam Hotel’s General Manager, Cian Landers said; “We are thrilled to announce our five-star rating, it is down to the hard work and dedication from each and every member of staff that we have secured such an accolade. Since opening in 2009 the Fitzwilliam Hotel has quickly established itself as the premier hotel in the city which has been in part due to our exceptional location, the quality of our product and the levels of professional service from our team.

“With a continued increase in demand spurred by the growing number of visitors to Belfast, there is a need to increase the stock of premium hotel rooms that are relevant for the international traveler and local visitors alike. That is why we have undertaken refurbishments and will be progressing with plans to extend the hotel.”
 
Congratulating the Fitzwilliam staff on receiving five stars, John McGrillen Tourism NI Chief Executive said; “Tourism NI’s accommodation grading scheme rigorously assesses tourist accommodation over a range of quality measures and I am delighted that the newly refurbished Fitzwilliam Hotel has met the highest standards and achieved five-star status.
 
“Last year Belfast welcomed 1,361,193 visitors resulting in 4,237,733 bed nights and the news that the Fitzwilliam Hotel been granted planning permission for 30 new bedrooms, gym and spa facilities and a roof garden is most welcome and presents an enhanced tourism offering for domestic and international visitors.”
 
The refurbishments, carried out by award winning design firm Project Orange, have transformed the lobby and current bedrooms and facilities with new sumptuous, art deco inspired colour palettes and furnishings.

The extension, which will begin in 2017 includes plans for 30 additional bedrooms, a gym and luxury spa for guests, an extravagant roof-top terrace offering views over the city as well as an upgrade of the main entrance and relocated conference and admin facilities.

The annual Belfast Ambassador Awards form part of the Conference Ambassador Programme, established in 1999 to enlist the help of local influencers from a range of sectors including medicine, pharmaceuticals, ICT, agriculture and public administration. To date, over 70% of all business events are secured by the help of an ‘ambassador’ who can use their influence to persuade their organisation, or association, to host their next major event in Belfast or Northern Ireland.

Gerry Lennon, Chief Executive, Visit Belfast, said:

“Belfast’s reputation as a conference destination is growing. Just last year, Visit Belfast won conference business for the city worth £45 million to the local economy. Of the 70 conferences secured, 38 – more than half – were secured with the help of a local ambassador.

“The ambassador network now includes over 1,000 leading professionals from multiples fields of expertise who work with us to attract conferences from across the UK, Ireland, Europe and the rest of the world.

“This peer-endorsement of Belfast is vital and we are grateful to the professionals who volunteer their time, knowledge, insights and passion to help us promote the city, and Northern Ireland, to conference organisers, agents and associations where contacts, recommendations, experience and relationships are vital.

“With the opening of the extended Belfast Waterfront, and venues like HMS Caroline, we now have a quality conference product that we can be proud of. With such a range of venues, hotels, attraction and a network of ambassadors fighting our corner, it is no wonder that Belfast and Northern Ireland are making a mark internationally.”

Among the 10 honours, the prestigious Belfast Ambassador of the Year award for 2016 was won by Janice Smyth from the Royal College of Nursing (RCN). The RCN Congress, which will be held over five days in 2018, will take place in the Belfast Waterfront and is expected to welcome more than 5,000 delegates to Belfast, contributing around £5 million to the local economy.

Janice accepted her award saying, “I am very proud of the City of Belfast and its people. I am therefore delighted that the Council of the Royal College of Nursing agreed that RCN Congress would be held in Belfast in 2018.
 
“Visit Belfast has made a significant contribution in marketing Belfast as a world-class destination for business and leisure. I have had the pleasure of working alongside Visit Belfast in a number of staff initiatives and UK conferences. I consider it a great honour to be named Belfast Ambassador of the Year”.

Susie McCullough, from Belfast Waterfront, who sponsored the Ambassador of the Year Award also commented:

“We’re delighted that Janice Smyth has been named Ambassador of the Year. Janice has worked tirelessly to help secure the prestigious RCN Congress for Belfast. Having worked with RCN on other events over many years we look forward to welcoming their congress in 2018. Recognised as the UK’s largest and most prestigious nursing congress, the event is set to attract around 5,000 delegates and will reap huge economic benefits for the city.”

[meta_title] => [meta_keywords] => [meta_description] => [content] =>

Out of administration, and with brand new local owners with a long term and ambitious vision, The Balmoral Hotel is back!

Having already reached a key milestone in employing upwards of 100 local people, The Balmoral Hotel now has its sights on continuing to develop as a world-class multi-function hospitality provider, not just for the West, but the whole city and beyond.

To this end the owners have assembled a first class “Team Balmoral” with decades of experience between them in the high end of the hospitality industry.   New General Manager David Begley is no stranger to a five star setting, having managed prestigious hotels such as Lough Erne and the Slieve Donard.    Mark Skillen - responsible for managing the beverage offering in the Hotel – is well-respected in the local hospitality industry, having managed some of the best known bars in the City for over 25 years.

Co-Owner Pat Walsh is a well-respected local business man, with a lifetime of developing and supporting local jobs.

The refurbed kitchens are now under the charge of development chef Dave Callaghan. They have been enhanced from being merely a top-class menu-driven kitchen to a top class development kitchen, where young aspiring chefs will be taught and developed under the tutelage of Chef Dave. This is where ground-breaking social initiative meets top class cuisine as dozens of aspiring youngsters from many different backgrounds will receive professional guidance and training from some of Ireland’s most experienced culinary experts. The hotel has also unveiled plans to facilitate full training for young people interested in a career in the hospitality industry, and with it a passionate commitment to job creation in the city.

Straight out of the traps, The Balmoral has already made an impression on the public this year, as it starts to forge key partnerships with community stakeholders. The successful partnership with Ireland’s Biggest Community Festival, Féile an Phobail was an eye-catching and hugely successful enterprise which placed The Balmoral as the flagship – and primary functioning hotel – in the west of the city, introducing and playing host to dozens of international visitors to Belfast in considerable style. Nowhere else in the City can locals or visitors alike experience the Céad mile Fáilte or famous hospitality that West Belfast is renowned for.

Pat Walsh said he planned to put The Balmoral Hotel at the forefront of Community, Culture and Tourism in West Belfast. “We’re hugely excited to be up and running as THE flagship hotel for West Belfast. And this is just the start – just like the thousands of people who’ve already enjoyed the Balmoral experience, we’re here to stay!” He also hinted at some of those bigger plans ahead, including one for those who like to eat out “no matter what the weather!”

He added: “Watch this space, because this is just the start for The Balmoral and West Belfast. I’m hugely proud of the team that we have put together for the relaunch of The Balmoral. We’re going to be at the heart of this community, offer world-class hospitality for all, whether you’re here to socialise, get married, have a business breakfast meeting or book a room for a city break. Balmoral is Back, better than ever, and in the business of being the best!”

With some 1600 delegates, this week’s British Orthopaedic Association (BOA) Annual Congress won’t be missed in Belfast city centre.

Delegates for the 4 day event are already arriving in town and will be based at Belfast Waterfront from 13 – 16 September.  And there’s no doubt the city’s hotels, bars, restaurants, retailers and transport providers will have a busy week.  Indeed the congress is expected to generate in excess of £3million in economic impact for the city.

BOA is the UK’s largest surgical association, and thanks to the new Belfast Waterfront 2016 sees the Congress hosted in Belfast for the first time in its 98 year history.
The 4-day 2016 programme will focus on Clinical Leadership and Engagement with 100+ sessions, and guest speakers from NHS Improvement, the GMC and Medical Defence Union.

The congress organisers are delighted to welcome the following high profile guest speakers to the event:

Staff at Belfast Waterfront are gearing up for one of their biggest events since the extended venue opened in April this year.  With a major accompanying exhibition of 70+ exhibitors, BOA Congress will see the new exhibition space put to good use.  Alongside more traditional medical supplies and professional services, delegates will also be able to experience cutting edge technology from the medical sector as well as comparing advances in other industries – including the Tesla car – the first car to be displayed in the new venue.

BOA’s choice of Belfast as the location for their first full congress to take place in Northern Ireland came as the result of a joint bid between Belfast Waterfront and Visit Belfast, dating back to 2013 when the Waterfront extension was in the early stages of planning.  The association had the foresight and ambition to bring the conference to the city based too on the strength of orthopaedic surgery locally.

Mike Kimmons CB, CEO of the Association comments: “When Belfast approached us in 2013 with the prospect of an extended Waterfront as a shiny new venue for our Congress the then Lord Mayor led from the front, ably supported by Visit Belfast.  We were enthusiastically and professionally presented with a value proposition that we could not ignore. Are we happy with the outcome? You bet we are! The Waterfront is everything we were promised and more, while the warmth of the City's welcome is outstanding, complemented by an exceptionally high quality shopping, leisure and dining experience that our delegates thoroughly enjoy.”

Catherine Toolan, Managing Director of Belfast Waterfront and Ulster Hall Limited, is looking forward to welcoming the Congress:
“In the 4 short months since our opening, the team here at the Waterfront have proven that Belfast can deliver large scale events which bring substantial value to the city.  We’re delighted that the BOA has chosen Belfast (and Belfast Waterfront) for their high profile Annual Congress and are looking forward to a successful working partnership.

“Our team are working hard to ensure every delegate fully enjoys their time in our venue and city. This means making sure our welcome, event technology, catering and most of all our famous Belfast hospitality, leave a lasting impression.  But of course the delegates’ experience stretches beyond the Waterfront and we know that Team Belfast are with us every step of the way delivering the best possible accommodation, food, entertainment and transport.”

Gerry Lennon, Chief Executive of Visit Belfast added:  “We are pleased to have been able to work with Belfast Waterfront and local ambassador Simon Henderson in attracting this conference to the city.

“This conference represents a fantastic opportunity to showcase Belfast as a vibrant destination to visitors from all over the UK. Conference delegates will experience a warm Belfast welcome from the moment they arrive, and with an economic impact of £3 million for the local economy, it will be great for the whole city.”

The £29.5m extension to Belfast Waterfront was funded by Belfast City Council, Tourism Northern Ireland and the European Regional Development Fund, through the European Sustainable Competitiveness Programme for Northern Ireland.

Tourism in East Belfast will get a major boost when a brand new visitor centre opens its doors to the public on 27th August. The EastSide Visitor Centre, an initiative delivered by EastSide Tourism, part of EastSide Partnership, will provide a base from which visitors can explore the EastSide of the city.

Visitors will access information on the city’s attractions from digital screens with interpretation panels and a wall map revealing EastSide’s famous faces, places and industries.

The centre will include a coffee bar named after EastSide’s famous writer C.S. Lewis aka Jack. JACK coffee bar will be operated by award winning Belfast entrepreneur Linzi Rooney, the innovator of  the ground breaking independent creative design hub and café - Studio Souk, located in Belfast City Centre.  Partnering with EastSide Tourism, Linzi, along with her team, will bring creative flair and passion for all things local by offering visitors the very best in locally sourced produce as well as providing a shop window for local artists and food producers to showcase their products.

Later this year, JACK coffee bar will have the unique position of offering visitors the perfect view and access to the eagerly awaited Connswater Community Greenway C.S Lewis Square (opening November) which will feature seven sculptures inspired by characters from the author’s most famous  works:The Chronicles of Narnia.

Getting ready to put EastSide on the tourism map at the EastSide Visitor Centre, opening 27th August, were, from left, Belfast businesswoman Linzi Rooney with EastSide Tourism Manager Chris Armstrong.

The hotel will be Marriott International’s first in Northern Ireland, joining the company’s portfolio of nearly 4,500 hotels located in 87 countries and territories around the world.

The four-star AC Hotel by Marriott Belfast will include 188 rooms, a restaurant, a bar/lounge, fitness facilities and meeting rooms. The new hotel will reflect the AC Hotels by Marriott brand vision to create contemporary hotel experiences through modern and purposeful design.

Graeme Johnson, Belfast Harbour’s Property Director, said:

“Bringing Marriott to Northern Ireland for the first time is great news for both business and leisure travellers as well as for the City.

“Marriott has a very strong presence in the business market which will complement the wider office developments planned for City Quays – the first office is already fully let to four US firms employing 800 people.  The hotel will also be well placed to tap into Belfast’s growing reputation as a conference destination with the newly refurbished Waterfront Hall just a short riverside walk away.

“With views of Titanic Belfast and SS Nomadic the hotel will also appeal to inbound tourists and – given Marriott’s reputation for quality – we’re confident that it will appeal strongly to local people looking for a new leisure experience.”

Marriott already has two hotels in Ireland: the world famous Shelbourne Dublin, a Renaissance Hotel and Powerscourt Hotel, Autograph Collection in Co. Wicklow. Marriott International hotels in London include the five-star JW Marriott Grosvenor House and St Pancras Renaissance Hotel.

“We are delighted to bring our lifestyle hotel brand, AC Hotels by Marriott, to the revitalised City Quays area of Belfast,” said Paul Thomas, Director International Development.  “This will be the first AC Hotel by Marriott in Northern Ireland, demonstrating our commitment to opening design-led hotels in thriving destinations where we see growing demand from discerning travellers seeking a refreshed hotel experience.  We look forward to being part of this exciting and flourishing city.”

Last month Gilbert Ash was appointed as contractor for the construction element of this £25m project.  Due to open in early 2018 the hotel is expected to create employment for approximately 100 people.

Ray Hutchinson, managing director of Gilbert-Ash, said: “City Quays Hotel represents one of the largest contracts that we have worked on in Northern Ireland in recent years, with a project value of £22m, and we are excited to commence work on site. We know that the finished property will be a welcome new addition to the local leisure accommodation offering, particularly at a time when demand for beds is at an all-time high.

“There are a number of major construction projects under way in Belfast at the moment which will substantially change the face of the city in the coming year. Few buildings are able to capitalise on a view over the River Lagan and we think that this hotel and its riverside terrace will allow locals and tourists alike to enjoy one of the city’s greatest assets.”


Robert Crook, Managing Director of Interstate Europe Hotels and Resorts, said: “We’re thrilled to be operating the first Marriott International-branded hotel in Belfast.  It’s a fantastic development for the city’s tourism industry, catering for both the leisure and corporate markets, and with all that Belfast has to offer on its doorstep, we’re sure its arrival will be a success.”

Gerry Lennon, Chief Executive of Visit Belfast said “We welcome the news that Marriott International has been selected to operate the hotel in City Quays. This is a welcome addition to Belfast’s growing portfolio of hotels. The last decade has seen tremendous growth in Belfast’s tourism industry, and demand for hotel rooms is rising. Just last year for example, we saw room sales break the one million barrier for the first time, and room occupancy averaged in excess of 78 percent.

“It is vital that the city maintains a mixture of recognised brands and independent hotels, so the addition of the internationally-renowned Marriott brand will only strengthen Belfast’s positioning as a must-see destination. Within close proximity to the Belfast Waterfront, key attractions like Titanic Belfast, and the city centre, this hotel will appeal to leisure and business visitors alike.”

The Hastings Group has invested almost £1m refreshing Belfast’s premiere city centre hotel, the Europa Hotel, as part of an ongoing programme of internal and external upgrades.
 
Visitors to the hotel will see one of the changes immediately, explained Julie Hastings, Marketing Director, Hastings Hotels.
 
“The Europa Hotel has a new grand entrance with an enlarged revolving door and as visitors arrive they will be greeted by a stunning chandelier.  The Piano Restaurant has a new integral bar and the Lobby Bar has been totally transformed as well.  The Causerie restaurant and Piano Lounge have also been upgraded and refreshed.  The hotel looks glorious and we are looking forward to the feedback on our new facilities from our guests around the world and those closer to home”, said Julie.
 
Julie continued:  “Whilst we have enlarged the Europa Hotel by 50% since we acquired it in 1994, we never really felt that we had given the hotel the sense of arrival that it deserves, as the premier City Centre Hotel in Belfast. This new development gives us that initial wow-factor, and our customer response to the changes we have made has been extremely positive. Visitors love taking their selfies at our new front door, and we are delighted to have completed all our work in time for the busy season ahead.”
 
The hotel also added a number of internal upgrades as part of the upgrade programme.
 
“Over half of our investment figure was used to upgrade parts of the hotel that will probably never be seen by members of the public”, said Julie.  “But we know that they will certainly benefit from them in terms of an enhanced customer experience whether they are having a meal, afternoon tea, popping in for a glass of wine, attending an event or staying over.
 
“Our investment in the Europa Hotel has been driven by our commitment to providing our visitors and guests with a unique hospitality experience, one which they will want to enjoy time and again”, concluded Julie.
