ATTRACTIONS HANDBOOK 2017-2018

Northern Ireland’s popular Titanic Belfast attraction is set to be expanded, with the operator casting its eye towards the hospitality side of its business. The plans, submitted to Belfast City Council, propose the extension, integration and alteration of titanic pavilions, with a single-storey extension of pavilions three and four. The plans also include a change of use, from retail to additional conferencing facilities, as well as a new entrance and external events area. The buildings, currently separate, would be extended and connected. “At Titanic Belfast, we don’t rest on our laurels and are continuously looking at ways to enhance our five-star facilities for the thousands of local, national and international tourists we welcome on an annual basis,” said a spokesperson, speaking to Attractions Management. Adding, “As the business continues to go from strength to strength, there’s a need to continually develop our offering.” Titanic Belfast sits within the city’s Titanic Quarter, a mixed-use waterside development which also includes the Odyssey Pavilion. Titanic Island Ltd, the company carrying out the development on site, is also seeking developers to build a 244-bedroom hotel. ■■ http://lei.sr?a=s1U0V www.attractionshandbook.com
