Radar 2017 is pleased to welcome all delegates to attend the drinks reception being held at the Belfast City Hall.

The hall was built by local firm H+J Martin, following a design from Alfred Brumwell Thomas, who won a public competition with his classical Renaissance design. Funding for the new building was raised from the profits of Belfast Gasworks for which Belfast Corporation (now Belfast City Council) was responsible.

The first stone was laid in 1898 and building work was completed eight years later.
Belfast City Hall opened its doors on 1 August 1906 during a great time of prosperity for the city.

Today, the magnificent building is a lasting memorial to Belfast's success and a great source of civic pride.

The welcome drinks reception is included in your conference registration fee and will be a great opportunity to network with other delegates and exhibitors.

We thank Belfast City Council for their kind generosity for the use of City Hall and the provision of hospitality.
