Things to Do


This year’s conference allows plenty of time to network with colleagues and explore Belfast.

You'll find fascinating bus and taxi tours, cultural escapes, scientific exhibitions and literary inspirations in the city that inspired the Chronicles of Narnia and Gulliver's Travels.

Northern Ireland's capital, is a port city known as the birthplace of the RMS Titanic, and for its political murals, documenting the 'Troubles' of the 20th century.
