As we at the Titanic Exhibition Centre celebrate our first birthday, the venue is cueing up for a sporting year two, with events including World Snooker Home Nations Series – Irish Open and Jamie Conlan’s Super-Flyweight Commonwealth Belt Defence already in the pipeline.
We are delighted to have been announced as a home for these latest sporting events, following our first year, establishing ourself as more than an exhibition space. Our bespoke venue proved its flexibility after successfully hosting a series of community and sporting events, including the Gran Fondo and Festival of Colours, as well as the EU Election count and the World Council of Credit Union’s Grand Finale banquet for approximately 1,500 people.
On top of this, established exhibitions on the Northern Ireland consumer and business calendar, including the Wedding Journal Show, Self-Build, Love Your Home Show, IFEX and Belfast Telegraph Holiday World Show are already in the pocket and set to return to the venue before 2018.
Many of the shows, including IFEX, who scooped the top prize for ‘Best Tradeshow Exhibition’ at the recent Association of Event Organisers (AEV) Excellence Awards for its event, as well as the Belfast Telegraph Holiday World Show reported sharp increases in footfall after holding their shows at the Titanic Exhibition Centre. While having a purpose built venue also inspired local organisers and introduced nine new shows to the Northern Ireland calendar, including Plumb Power Heat and Light Expo and Irish Muscle Power event.
Tim Husbands MBE, Chief Executive of Titanic Exhibition Centre, commented, “Year one has been exciting for the Titanic Exhibition Centre and has certainly been a year of firsts for the venue. From banquets for 1,500, elections counts, hundreds of cyclists for the Gran Fondo, as well as thousands of culinary enthusiasts, wedding planners and self-builders, we’ve definitely put the venue of the map. We are now looking forward to a sporting 2016/17, with 12 events already in the pipeline, including World Snooker Home Nations Series and Jamie Conlan’s Super-Flyweight Commonwealth Belt Defence. 2016/17 is sure to be a knock-out!”
