IMEKO World Conference 2018

Belfast Waterfront Conference Centre won a bid to host the IMEKO (International Measurement Confederation) World Congress in 2018.

The 2018 congress will see 1000 scientists and engineers from 50 countries at Belfast Waterfront over five days. It will deliver about £1.9m to the local economy.

Belfast Waterfront in partnership with Visit Belfast, fought off fierce competition from other well-known conference cities including Glasgow and Brighton as well as international bids from Braunschweig in Germany and Budapest in Hungary.

This will be the first time in 40 years that the event has been hosted by a UK city.
