We offer value for money, ensuring return on investment for our services. We also understand that some organisations prefer to manage certain aspects of their events internally and we can do as much or as little as you require to help you achieve your end result.
We have experience in organising a vast array of events including the following:
We focus on three main areas of practice:
“This year was our 22nd Institute of Hospitality Awards for Professionalism where over 500 guests celebrated at Titanic Belfast all that is great about the hospitality industry in Northern Ireland. This is the second year that ND Events has worked with us from the very early stages embracing a detailed and complex brief. The awards are the most prestigious event in the hospitality calendar and they maintained the high standards that this event is renowned for from start to finish. Their attention to detail and expert knowledge was evident at every stage of the process. The launch of the nominations through to the delivering of 2 days of an independent judging process and their assistance with organising the awards night were crucial and ensured the resounding success of the event. A massive thank you to ND Events for everything.”
Michael Cafolla, Chair of The Institute of Hospitality NI Branch
“Working with ND Events was a pleasure and I look forward to working with them in the future. Neil and Kathryn always made me feel like Powerscreen were their only client, nothing was every too much trouble. The event was delivered on time and to budget. Neil and Kathryn quickly understood the audience of the event and tailored the event to their requirements. I would like to thank Neil and Kathryn for helping to make the Powerscreen 50th celebrations such a memorable success, we had lots of compliment’s from our global attendees.”
Michelle Murphy, Marketing Manager, Powerscreen/Terex Group

Roseann Kelly, CEO Women in Business Northern Ireland
“ND Events were fantastic in creating the first ever Food Heartland Awards in 2016. They were responsibly in creating the award categories, managing the judging process, securing sponsors and ultimately delivering a fantastic awards night that promoted the Food Heartland Region. They delivered every aspect of their responsibilities including exceeding expectations in the number of entries submitted, securing a title sponsor (NFU Mutual) and category sponsors and selling out the event. Much of the success of the event was down to ND Events’ enthusiasm and commitment.”
Armagh City, Banbridge & Craigavon Borough Council

So many people have commented on and agreed that this truly was a memorable occasion from the fantastic room decor, delicious menu and of course our surprise guest, Sam Bailey. It was obvious to all who attended that you put great time and effort into making the Awards event the big success that it was and I have to say that your excellent organisation certainly paid off. ND Events has certainly set a new standard for future events.”
Alderman Allan Ewart, Chairman of Economic Development Committee, Lisburn City Council
“Many thanks for all of your help – you and your team did an excellent job. All the tours you proposed and managed on our behalf showcased Northern Ireland as a wonderful destination with all our guests commenting on how beautiful a country it is. The conference ran very smoothly and the social dinners were specular from the unique and unusual venues of the Transport Museum and SS Nomadic, to the elegant and historic Belfast City Hall and Hillsborough Castle. Our guests will return home with amazing memories thanks to your careful coordination of the programme. ”
Denise Mora, Radiology International
“Neil, we have received excellent feedback on our conferences so far and this is due in no small part to your hard work and attention to detail. Thank you very much for all the work you put in at each conference and of course all the days beforehand, it was all very much appreciated. We look forward to working with ND Events again in the near future.”
