Business people from across the globe to convene at third annual Belfast International Homecoming

Business people with links to Belfast from across the globe will return home next month to give international insights and inspiration on the future development of the city at the third annual Belfast International Homecoming, in association with Ulster Bank, from October 12th-14th.

Delegates from government and the international creative, legal and technology industries will attend events across the city which will culminate in a major business and investment conference at Titanic Belfast on Friday 14th October. Also in attendance will be city mayors, entrepreneurs, investors and artists from Australia, New York and further afield.

The conference will be addressed by over 40 local and international speakers, touching on three key themes: the physical development of the city, promoting entrepreneurship and attracting and keeping talent.

Keynote speakers for the three-day conference include: Marie Macklin, CBE, Chair, Klin Group, Glasgow; Brian Golden, Head of the Redevelopment Authority, Boston; Representative Mike Fitzpatrick, New York State Assembly; Brian Conlon, chief executive, First Derivatives.

The Homecoming aims to foster mutually beneficial international partnerships, working in tandem with the American Ireland Fund and influential honorary Chairs to showcase the opportunities Belfast has to offer.
