ICC Belfast, Waterfront Hall and Ulster Hall have been welcomed to the Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA) as its latest corporate member.
ICC Belfast is the conferencing brand representing Northern Ireland’s only purpose-built international convention centre. Sister entertainment brands, the Waterfront Hall and Ulster Hall represent two of Belfast’s most iconic entertainment venues. The overarching goal is to win and deliver world-class conferences and events so that Belfast becomes a business tourism and live entertainment hotspot. In recent years the venue has played host to major events such as the European Premiere of Game of Thrones Series 8. The venue closed to the public in March 2020 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, however the team was quick to pivot its approach. Since June 2020 a variety of hybrid conferences, award ceremonies and product launches have been held and in December 2020, an exciting new digital experience, ‘Live from the Ulster Hall’ was launched.
ICC Belfast, Waterfront Hall and Ulster Hall’s chief executive Julia Corkey said:
We are delighted to join PRCA as an in-house member. As a business that communicates with international audiences, collaborating with a professional organisation such as PRCA, that operates globally, will be highly beneficial.
“Our membership offers a wealth of opportunities to our team including training, networking and development. The learnings gained can then be applied to all of our communications activity, ensuring we’re at the forefront of innovation and industry best practice.”
PRCA Director General Francis Ingham MPRCA said:
“I’m thrilled to welcome ICC Belfast, Waterfront Hall and Ulster Hall onboard as PRCA members."
They’re a staple to Belfast’s business events and entertainment scene, and like many organisations in the entertainment and events business, they’ve shown impressive resilience and adaptability in the past year.
"I look forward to them using the full breadth of our training, resources, and networking opportunities.”
