Tourism NI is responsible for the development of tourism and the marketing of Northern Ireland as a tourist destination to visitors within Northern Ireland and from the Republic of Ireland.
Tourism NI has launched a major initiative aimed at putting food and drink at the heart of the Northern Ireland visitor experience.
The Year of Food and Drink 2016 will be a yearlong celebration aimed at boosting Northern Ireland’s reputation as a destination.
The year will see a series of events and industry development programmes celebrating quality, innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship in the food and drink sector.
Belfast’s new Titanic Exhibition Centre (TEC), sited opposite Titanic Studios in Titanic Quarter, opens today (Thursday 17th September at 11am), delivering a huge boost for local business in the process.
The 6,000 square metre structure will be used as a potential venue for exhibitions, community and sporting events, as well as large-scale banquets.
More than 3,000 visitors will be able to attend exhibitions at any one time and the TEC will also have the capacity to provide sit-down banqueting for up to 2,500 diners.
Tourism NI has commended a leading B&B situated on the Causeway Coastal Route for its achievements in quality and customer care.
In addition to its five-star quality rating from Tourism NI, held since 2011, Crowfield Country House has been awarded a host of accolades in the four years it has been operating.
They include excellence awards from TripAdvisor and hotels.com for 2015, as well as a 2014 Excellence Award from booking.com.
The second year of the Live Here Love Here Small Grants Scheme will help communities, schools and groups to take practical action to improve their local environment and support the growth of civic pride throughout Northern Ireland.
