New York-New Belfast Conference 2020
June 12 @ 1:30 pm - 6:30 pm
While ever-mindful of the pummelling New York has taken in this Coronavirus hurricane and aware that a subdued Belfast remains in lockdown, we invite you to play your part in a New York-New Belfast conference like no other.
Rebuilding will be the theme of a virtual summit on Friday 12 June which will lay out a roadmap into the future for cities which are isolated from each other in a way not seen since the era of transatlantic flight began.
This year’s programme will feature both commentary on where both cities stand today as well as a clarion call for the future.
Rebooting our tourism industry, reconnecting our cities, renewing our university partnerships, refreshing business links will all provide much food for thought at our virtual gathering.
We will have a special platform for technology companies which have weathered the storm better than most.
