Visit Belfast


Over a billion pounds has been invested in the city’s tourism product over recent years, from world-class venues and experiences, to brand new hotels, bars and restaurants . The Belfast business tourism product is trusted and the team at Visit Belfast always go the extra mile for clients, that is why Belfast was crowned Best Events destination by C&IT two years in a row.

Lonely Planet hailed the city the ‘Best region to visit in the World’. The city loves winning awards, but the best accolade of all is the happiness and success of clients who place their trust in us to deliver outstanding experiences.

Visit Belfast has an experienced team of business tourism professionals who offer free and impartial advice and support on all aspects of organising your conference, meeting or event in Belfast. 

To support tourism recovery, Tourism Northern Ireland, Belfast City Council and Visit Belfast have launched a major new £1m scheme to help associations to host their conference and meetings in Belfast.
