The Events Industry in Northern Ireland has a major role to play in shaping and delivering the objectives set out in the Events Strategic Vision for Northern Ireland.

Whether it is homegrown events, or major one-off internationals, events in general have the capacity to showcase our people and places on a global stage. Events can drive visitor numbers, generate increased spend and also provide platforms for the visitor to interact with the local culture, local people and explore our scenic landscapes and cities.

Events Strategic Vision for Northern Ireland

This strategy aims to provide a clear vision and to support the events industry and strengthen the position of Northern Ireland as a must see destination.
