The SESAM conference is one of several medical conferences that will be held in the city, capitalising on Belfast’s global academic and medical reputation.

Working with Queens University Belfast, Ulster University and Invest NI, Visit Belfast will target conferences and events that support their priority research, economic and investment objectives as well as 2020 tourism targets set by local and central government.
