Belfast Waterfront is pleased to announce a partnership with The Meetings Show 2016, taking place between 14-16 June at Olympia, London.
Branded Belfast Waterfront lanyards will be distributed to over 3,000 meetings industry professionals attending the premier event for the UK inbound and outbound meetings industry. And with the recent opening of its 7,000m2 world class conference centre, the Belfast Waterfront team will be also showcasing their fantastic new facilities at the show.
A £29.5m expansion programme has seen the venue double its event space, helping deliver a brand new event experience for up to 5,000 delegates.
Visitors to Stand I402 will have the opportunity to see how its new spaces, innovative catering approach and high-tech, state of the art audio visual capabilities are wowing guests.
Since re-opening on Friday 29 April, the venue has already played host to the Association of Paediatric Anaesthetists, Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Association of Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland (ASGBI) and BT. And many more big events are on their way to the stunning riverside venue including BBC Good Food Show, the World Credit Union Conference and the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) Annual Congress.
Having a re-imagined award-winning conference centre at the heart of Belfast’s exciting business tourism offering, has enticed many more organisations to consider Belfast as a host city.
Dr. Frank Amoneit, Managing Director of Euro Fed Lipid, explains: “Belfast Waterfront’s new expansion put Belfast on the table as a confirmed host city for the 16th Euro Fed Lipid Congress in 2018. In addition, the city’s overall package of facilities, a good spread of hotels nearby the venue and an extensive network of flights made Belfast an attractive destination for our annual conference.”
