Whilst lockdown measures have begun to ease in Northern Ireland and preparations for reopening are well underway the NI Chamber team, who typically deliver upwards of 100 events annually, had an immediate need to adapt their offering so that they could continue to engage with members and deliver practical advice and support to businesses operating across all sectors during these challenging times. The NI Chamber Leadership Series in partnership with Electric Ireland is a firm favourite of members and has been running for over seven years. As one of NI Chamber's flagship events, ICC Belfast were delighted to receive the invitation to collaborate on the 2020 event, ensuring that it would be one of the most memorable to date.
Given the current COVID-19 situation, like many businesses we've had to adapt our services and bring them online. We're delighted to partner with ICC Belfast, using their fantastic facilities of the Hybrid Studio to really bring our online events to the next level. It just offers us that little bit of extra professionalism.

Purpose-built Hybrid Studio
The ICC Belfast Hybrid Studio was perfect for World Class Leadership LIVE, offering the flexibility of hosting guests both in-house and virtually. The venue's latest innovation allowed NI Chamber to communicate their message via a platform that was customised to reflect their brand. Whether attending virtually or in-person, delegates were able to interact with live sessions by asking questions. Speakers delivered keynotes and contributed to panel discussions directly from the Hybrid Studio as well as from their respective bases in the Republic of Ireland, Lebanon and the United States. This was a first for NI Chamber and meant attendees benefited from a global perspective on overcoming universal issues facing businesses in the current climate.
The platform we use allows endless amounts of branding...the possibilities are endless!
Dave Young, Head of Production, ICC Belfast
ICC Belfast's Hybrid Studio is a practical example of how now, more than ever before, the team's pursuit of excellence is relentless. They pride themselves on creating emotional connections and delivering an experience rather than just another conference and are confident that World Class Leadership LIVE was the first of many successful events held in the ICC Belfast Hybrid Studio.
