The Gala Dinner will be held in the prestigious Belfast City Hall.
How do I get there?
Most of our delegates will be flying over to the convention and you can fly into either Belfast International Airport or Belfast City Airport. Belfast City Airport (George Best Airport) is a short 10 Minute Taxi whilst Belfast International Airport is a 45 Minute Bus Journey.
You can also fly into Dublin Airport but this will be a two hour coach up to the metropolis of Belfast. Coaches are frequent and fairly inexpensive from Dublin.
You can also often travel to Belfast by bus (even from the Mainland) or bring the car over on the ferry and make the most out of your time on the island of Ireland!

The early bird rate ends on 31 July 2019 at midnight. The price is £150 and you are welcome to pay over three instalments.
This rate will increase to £180 after this date until the end of September.
After 30 September, the rate will increase again to £195 until the Convention weekend.
