BELFAST REALLY MAKES SENSE

COMPARISON WITH THE REGION

One thing that meetings organisers are especially enthusiastic about is how compact the city is. All the main venues and hotels are within the wider city centre, all of which is within walking distance. The heart of the meetings offering is the Belfast Waterfront where ICC Belfast is located; this superbly designed convention centre is perfect for events with up to 2,220 participants. During our visit, it was hosting a microbiology meeting that took up the most of the centre. In addition to meetings, the acoustically superb Main Auditorium also hosts numerous concerts and other events.
