Simon Hamilton, chief executive of Belfast Chamber, said: “Belfast Chamber is excited to partner with Carson McDowell on the Re-Energising Belfast series.
“We have heard a lot about the city’s ambitions in recent years, but these events will lift the lid on some of the tangible projects and investments that are laying the foundations for the future growth of the city’s economy.
“We look forward to showcasing these developments and also sparking real debate into the challenges that lie ahead for Belfast.”
