The Venue

The 2018 conference will be held in the Assembly Buildings Conference Centre in the heart of Belfast.


The Assembly Buildings opened for business in 1905 on the site of the original Fisherwick Church. For over 100 years the magnificent building has been the headquarters and home to the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland.


Designed by Young & MacKenzie in the architectural style of a Scottish baronial castle, it’s easy to walk past this stunning building without appreciating its imposing gothic structure. Stand back and raise your head to the sky to appreciate the fantastic 130 feet tall clock tower; home to Belfast’s only operational peal of 12 bells. Stepping inside you will soon realise you are not in a normal conference venue. Stain glass windows set in stunning interior architecture mixing wood and stone to create a venue like no other.
