New initiative puts Derry on the map for international conferences


Visit Derry has joined forces with leading local firms and academics to boost the number of international business events hosted in the city.

The Ambassador Circle is a joint project between Tourism NI, Visit Derry and Visit Belfast, and part-funded through the region’s Tourism Recovery Action Plan.

It seeks to target and promote key conferences and events, and promote the North West, and Northern Ireland, as a leading business destination.

Odhran Dunne, CEO of Visit Derry, said 90% of business events come to the city through the support of a local ambassador.

He added: “The new Ambassador Circle is key to our success in attracting conferences and will act as a catalyst to inspire and motivate our local ambassadors to actively seek opportunities to host business events that will support the district’s tourism economy.”
