ICC Belfast celebrates a second consecutive year as the winner of the Event Technology Awards' most innovative and tech-friendly venue.
The Event Technology Awards, which were held as part of Event Tech Live's hybrid week, recognise companies achieving digital and technological solutions within the events industry. This award celebrates ICC Belfast's unique technical infrastructure, which was recently expanded to ensure the convention centres long-term sustainability.
A commitment to business preparedness and responsiveness to emerging trends within the events industry led to ICC Belfast and its sister venues, Waterfront Hall and Ulster Hall becoming hybrid-by-design. The multi-disciplinary team has delivered over 35 hybrid conferences, concerts, product launches and award ceremonies following the launch of a purpose-built Hybrid Studio in June 2020 including the European Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Therapies (EABCT) Annual Congress. This event, which was the first fully hybrid, multi-day event to be held in the convention centre received overwhelmingly positive feedback from the 2000+ virtual and in-person delegates, further underlining that the technical production capabilities at ICC Belfast hold are second to none.
Charlie McCloskey, Director of Events and Customer Experience at ICC Belfast | Waterfront Hall | Ulster Hall commented saying:
We are absolutely delighted to win most innovative and tech-friendly venue at this year’s Event Technology Awards. Over the past year, we have invested heavily in new technology such as BirdDog cameras and NDI technology, allowing us to deliver high-quality live streaming and first-class digital event solutions to our clients. Our dedicated team has worked tirelessly to offer a seamless transition to hybrid and virtual events, and we look forward to delivering many more.
Thanks to recent investments, ICC Belfast, Waterfront Hall and Ulster Hall are equipped with state-of-the-art technology including NI’s largest Absen LED wall and 4K PTZ cameras in every meeting space in the venues, allowing the team to deliver world-class hybrid-by design-events and provide a multi-sensory experience that is truly unique to Belfast.
