Visit Belfast manages the application process for financial support (also known as subvention) on behalf of Tourism Northern Ireland and Belfast City Council. This conference support scheme provides event organisers with a financial package to make events at ICC Belfast, or any of our city’s other venues, as successful as possible.
Bringing your conference to our city
We want to put your conference and Belfast on a world stage and give your delegates the best experience possible. To help event organisers do this, Northern Ireland offers a conference support scheme of £50 for each out-of-state delegate, with awards ranging from £5,000 and £100,000.
The subvention scheme has been designed with flexibility in mind in order to support as many conference organisers as possible. For more information or to find out if your event qualifies, head over to Visit Belfast’s website.
Northern Ireland Association support scheme
This scheme is open to not-for-profit associations that are welcoming a minimum of 100 out-of-state delegates to Northern Ireland for at least one night. Examples of eligible costs include venue costs and pre-conference marketing costs.
What our conference partners say
Don’t just take our word for it. Hear what our conference partners have to say about ICC Belfast and their Belfast experience.
There aren’t many venues like this where all the departments work so closely together. It made our lives a lot easier and the delegate feedback regarding the venue has been very positive on how the event was delivered.
As a BSPED member, I always thought about bringing this conference to Belfast, the people that really work behind the scenes, the Visit Belfast team and ICC Belfast team, have really helped make my dream come into reality.
