Belfast has been crowned 'best events destination' for a second consecutive year in the Conference & Incentive Travel Magazine Awards.

The award was made after the city's tourism agency, Visit Belfast, had 112 conference wins.

The city also climbed 50 places in the International Congress and Convention Association global rankings and hosted several prestigious events.

Lord Mayor of Belfast John Finucane said: "There is no doubt that we punch above our weight when it comes to the calibre of the national and international events Belfast has proven itself capable of hosting, and that is something which has been recognised by the industry."
