conference dinner & Visit titanic museum

Friday 23 September 2022

The Conference Dinner will be held in Titanic Belfast, the very place where Titanic was designed, built and launched. This impressive museum tells the story of Titanic from her conception, through her construction and launch, to her maiden voyage and subsequent place in history. A must visit if you have the chance during your stay in Belfast.

After the pre-dinner drinks we'll head for the dinner hall. The adjacent lounge offers impressive views on the slipway where Titanic as built and from where it was first launched into the water. A life size plan of Titanic’s Promenade Deck which is inlaid in white stone reveals the positions of the liner’s lifeboats and funnels; benches are positioned exactly as they would have been on board the deck of Titanic. The dinner room itself, well, we'll only reveal that you will want to have your camera's ready!

Join us and enjoy a nice three-course dinner, music and dance, and above all the company of your friends and colleagues. 

Costs: € 65. Pre-registration via the online registration form is required. Please reserve your tickets before 15 September.
