Belfast has won a major award recognising its strengths as a top destination for conferences.

The city was named Best Conference Destination for 2022 at the Conference & Incentive Travel (C&IT) Awards in London for the second year in a row.

It’s been celebrated as the world’s best conference and events destination at the annual C&IT Awards gala for four out of the last five years.

Visit Belfast said the accolade recognised efforts to surpass the expectations of conference and event organisers for thousands of delegates every year.

Visit Belfast promotes the city as a destination for business, leisure and cruise visitors.

Tourism NI, Invest NI and Belfast City Council are also key supporters and funders of business tourism into the city.

Belfast Lord Mayor Christina Black said: “Belfast continues to punch well above its weight in a highly competitive market.

“That demonstrates its strengths, a team spirit and a prized warm welcome that makes more and more people want to come back”.
