ICC Belfast has been shortlisted in the 'Most innovative and tech-friendly venue' category at the Event Technology Awards 2020.
Celebrating excellence in event technology, these awards span a range of categories from Best Technology Partnership to Best Hybrid Event or Live Streaming Solution. The need for virtual or hybrid event solutions has never been greater. Innovations such as the ICC Belfast Hybrid Studio are ideal, offering organisers a fully customisable platform to seamlessly host 20 or 20,000 delegates.
ICC Belfast's specialist in-house team have been using their technical production expertise to create spectacular event experiences for over two decades. Recent successes include the European Premiere of HBO's Game of Thrones Series 8, which incorporated the use of surround sound cinema PA systems, the installation of cinema grade projectors and high-definition LED screens to set the scene for an action-packed evening that was full of suspense.
Lookers PLC's 'best ever conference' was also enhanced through the clever use of lighting and sound to bring their conference theme of togetherness to the next level. Delegates were amazed at the transformation from the daytime corporate meeting to the Bavarian beer hall style gala dinner that took place that evening to showcase the full flexibility of our world-class venue.
Charlie McCloskey, Head Event and Customer Experience commented on the shortlist announcement saying,
We're thrilled to be shortlisted in these prestigious awards alongside some of the best venues in the industry. Integrating event technology into our offering is a priority for our team, particularly over the past few months. Clients' needs are evolving and as Northern Ireland's only purpose-built international convention centre we want to remain at the forefront of innovation to ensure that expectations are not only met but exceeded.
The winners will be announced the first week in November as part of Event Tech Live’s hybrid week.
