Welcome Reception and Visit to Titanic Experience

Wednesday 19th June 2024, 6.30pm – 8.30pm
On-board SS Nomadic, moored next to Titanic Belfast, Titanic Quarter, Belfast

The evening before the opening of the main Conference there will be a Welcome Reception.  All delegates are welcome but attendance must be pre-booked.

SS Nomadic was tender to RMS Titanic and is the last remaining White Star Line ship in the world. She has been restored to her original glory and is now back home in Belfast's historic Hamilton Dock, displayed adjacent to Titanic Belfast, our Conference venue.  SS Nomadic gives guests the opportunity to experience over 100 years of authentic maritime and social history.

As a very special feature this year, following the drinks and buffet delegates will have an exclusive opportunity to visit the Titanic Experience – the fascinating and informative galleries which tell the story of Titanic from her conception, through her construction and launch, to her maiden voyage and subsequent place in history.

Tickets are complimentary with Full Registration, but please indicate at the time of registering whether or not you wish to attend the two parts of the evening.
