The 19th-cen­tury listed Crum­lin Road Gaol is one of Belfast’s most beau­ti­ful build­ings, pro­vid­ing seven ar­chi­tec­turally stun­ning spa­ces, such as the Gaol Cir­cle and C Wing, a steel Vic­to­rian atrium at the heart of the prison, or the more in­ti­mate Gover­nor’s Of­fice. All spa­ces of­fer AV tech­nol­ogy and make mem­o­rable set­tings for cor­po­rate events.

The Septem­ber launch of the £90 mil­lion eco-hy­brid Glider bus ser­vice, com­bined with the de­vel­op­ment of a new city cen­tre trans­port hub at Great Vic­to­ria Street sta­tion by 2022, will pro­vide the city with a world-class trans­port net­work to help carry Belfast fur­ther into the fore­front of the fi­nan­cial tech­nol­ogy world and be­yond.

KINGSPAN STA­DIUM: Home of Ul­ster Rugby, the sta­dium has a ca­pac­ity for 18,000 sup­port­ers but also of­fers smaller spa­ces for more in­ti­mate meet­ings and con­fer­ences – close to the city cen­tre, too. ul­ster­rugby.com

HMS CARO­LINE: The only First World War light bat­tle­cruiser afloat, the Royal Navy’s HMS Caro­line is an ex­cit­ing venue in the heart of Belfast’s Ti­tanic Quar­ter. Lo­cated min­utes from the city cen­tre, the ship has a ca­pac­ity of more than 200. nmrn.org.uk/cor­po­rate

UL­STER MU­SEUM: Dubbed North­ern Ire­land’s trea­sure trove of the past and present, the Ul­ster Mu­seum houses di­nosaurs, Egyp­tian mum­mies and modern mas­ter­pieces among its col­lec­tions – and two event spa­ces able to host crowds of up to 200. Its to­tal ca­pac­ity is 1,500 guests. nmni.com

HILLS­BOR­OUGH CAS­TLE: The of­fi­cial res­i­dence of the Royal Fam­ily in North­ern Ire­land, this el­e­gant Ge­or­gian Cas­tle, lo­cated 20km south­west of the city cen­tre has wel­comed Barack Obama and the Dalai Lama in the past. The State Din­ing Room, op­u­lent Red Room and show-stop­ping State En­trance Hall, all have their own unique char­ac­ter, while the Cas­tle Gar­dens’ open-air ca­pac­ity is an im­pres­sive 5,000. hrp.org.uk
