Located in the stunning North West of Ireland, the charming city of Derry~Londonderry is renowned as one of the finest 17th Century Walled cities in Europe, full of fascinating culture. This vibrant Conference destination offers delegates an opportunity to experience a city that is youthful, vibrant and rich in its history both ancient and living.
Derry's compact size creates a natural Conference Village framed by the 17th Century City Walls, all easily accessible by foot. From contemporary venues and residential properties, to historic buildings and quirky spaces there is something to suit every requirement, and with day delegates starting at less than £35.00 we guarantee value for money without compromising on quality.
The social aspects of a conference are just as valuable as the academic content where after a busy conference, delegates can kick back, relax and network with their industry colleagues. People buy from people and we place a real emphasis on creating an atmosphere to inspire those connections. As the saying goes, eat, drink and be merry – here you can enjoy the finest locally sourced produce including "from pier to plate" fresh seafood from neighbouring County Donegal. Keeping it local is important to us and we love to include locally produced beverages such as Walled City Brewery and Northbound craft beers or the award winning "The Quiet Man" whiskey to help you create standout menus!
