Come join us at the third annual Belfast International Homecoming conference as our resurgent city braces itself for unprecedented economic growth.
Belfast has forged new ground with its inspirational Homecoming gatherings which have brought ‘home’ diaspora leaders of commerce, community and culture united in their desire to build the peace by fostering mutually beneficial international partnerships.
From 12-14 October 2016, that work will move up a gear as we work in tandem with the American Ireland Fund and our influential Honorary Chairs to showcase the many business opportunities Belfast offers.
We promise to astonish and inspire you at every turn by introducing you to the dynamic entrepreneurs, bridge-builders and civic champions who are transforming Belfast into a beacon of peace, prosperity and diversity.
