Belfast has been chosen to host next year's conference of the World's Credit Unions, which will attract 2,000 credit members from around the globe.

It will be the first time the event is held here after travelling to destinations like Barcelona, Hong Kong, Sydney, Denver and Las Vegas. The Waterfront Hall will play host to the event from July 17 to 20.

Visit Belfast chief executive Gerry Lennon said securing the event was "a real coup".

"This major event represents not just another solid economic win for Belfast which is worth an estimated £2.3m but another real opportunity to showcase our fantastic tourism offer with world-class attractions, hotels, shops, cafes and bars," he said.
