Spent 4 days at ICC Belfast and I really appreciated the great ambiance and conference facilities. The staff were super friendly. I have never encountered such amazing staff who are totally dedicated to their roles. Kudos 👍🏽. Would recommend ICC Belfast to whom it may concern.

I was there in May 2022 for the SCTS Annual Meeting. Very big and modern facility with plenty of theatres and teaching halls. Always clean and well kept. Nice and professional staff. Very nice catering.

5 Stars

The Northern Ireland Investment Summit was amazing. Staff at ICC Belfast were professional and helpful, ensuring events ran smoothly. With over 700 people to move around a busy plenary session with keynotes, breakouts, and 1-2-1 sessions; the venue proved flexible and substantial and more than up to the task. Thanks to the team involved.
