The third annual Belfast International Homecoming took place in the city in October and saw a host of our international diaspora join with local thought leaders and business trailblazers in working to boost the peace through economic development.
The hugely successful event, which took place between 12 and 14 October, saw delegates from countries such as the US, Australia and Scotland, help shape discussions on progressing prosperity whilst forging relationships and making pledges that will translate into solid actions.
From the opening address by the President of Quinnipiac University, John Lahey to the closing remarks at the residence of the US Consul General Dan Lawton, a host of major themes emerged from the three days of discussions. Entrepreneurialism and using smart talent, regeneration and boosting tourism were among the many issues discussed and to be taken forward by our committed delegates.
A full report on the business and investment conference will appear on our website soon. In the meantime we thank all our participants – especially those from overseas – our honorary chairs and speakers and of course our sponsors and benefactors for supporting such a productive event.
