Belfast is a business-friendly city with a growing reputation for hosting major conferences. The Financial Times has listed Belfast as one of the top ten cities to hold a conference.
The recent investment of £29.5 million in Belfast Waterfront has doubled the size of its conference and exhibition facilities, transforming it into a world class conference and exhibition centre. The venue now boasts 7,000m² of flexible event space for conferences, exhibitions, business events and entertainment. While the facility has been designed to accommodate any type of event for up to 2,000+ delegates, it also lends itself perfectly to smaller, intimate events.
St George's Market
Just across the road from Belfast Waterfront is historic St George’s Market which offers a unique venue for conferences. Its floor area spans 4,029m² making it one of Belfast’s largest hireable venues, and this can be subdivided into smaller spaces to suit the individual needs of event organisers. St George’s has a capacity of 2,000 people and an entertainment licence.
Belfast Castle boasts some of the most comprehensive conference and event facilities in Northern Ireland. It has secured a well deserved reputation as a unique, high quality function venue.
Malone House offers a number of versatile and spacious rooms which have capacities ranging from six to 120 people, depending on the layout you choose. All rooms have natural daylight.
