Sponsors Announced For The Northern Ireland Investment Conference

Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster has announced Danske Bank and British Airways as joint sponsors of the Northern Ireland Investment Conference.

Organised by Invest Northern Ireland on behalf of the NI Executive, the conference will be held from 10-11 October at Titanic Belfast.

It aims to profile Northern Ireland's growing reputation as a premier investment location to around 150 potential and existing inward investors.

Arlene Foster said: "The G8 summit held in Fermanagh in June was a major success, positively profiling Northern Ireland on a global stage.

"Hosting an Investment Conference this October will provide a unique opportunity to build upon the legacy of G8 and show some of the most senior decision makers from international firms what a dynamic, modern business environment Northern Ireland is.

"By showcasing that we have the skills and infrastructure which can exceed the demands of companies on a global scale, we can demonstrate that Northern Ireland is a strategic investment location of choice for international investors in key growth sectors."
