Business leaders from across the world have descended on Londonderry as the city hosts one of Europe's biggest business conferences.

A high-powered audience of around 200 international decision-makers, investors, analysts, academics, policy-makers and business angels has come to Derry for the European Business Innovation Centre Network Congress (EBN), which is also open to Northern Ireland firms.

Main speaker will be Steve Wozniak, who in 1976 co-founded Apple Computer Inc with Steve Jobs.

It is the first time this major event is taking place in Northern Ireland – bringing a huge boost to the economy here in terms of delegate spending – and one of the first times in the UK.
