ICC Belfast has been shortlisted in the Best Venue category at the C&IT Awards, which celebrate the very best in the world of conferences, meetings and incentives.
Following a hugely successful night at the 2018 C&IT Awards where ICC Belfast took home the top prize in the‘Best Venue’ category, beating off tough competition from fellow venues in the UK, Europe and Asia and Visit Belfast secured the ‘Best Events Destination’, both teams are delighted to have again been named as finalists in the 2019 awards.
The past twelve months have been a period of major growth and change for ICC Belfast, which repositioned from Belfast Waterfront in 2018 to be reflective of its status as one of the UK and Ireland’s leading international convention centres. The venue is now well equipped to take advantage of the recent surge in local Business Tourism activity and boasts exclusive infrastructure, state-of-the-art technology and an experienced and ambitious multi-disciplinary team who work with event organisers at every touchpoint to lay the foundations for an event that is guaranteed to exceed expectations.
Over the last year ICC Belfast have held some superb events, two of the most notable being the Lookers PLC annual conference, which took place in February, which Chief Executive Andy Bruce described as their 'best ever', and the European premiere of the eighth and final series of Game of Thrones, HBO’s global blockbuster. Collaboration was key to delivering these world-class events, both between the ICC Belfast and client teams and with partners throughout the city to deliver a citywide event experience like no other.
We look forward to seeing many familiar faces at the awards ceremony in September and hope that all of Team Belfast will have plenty to celebrate!
