Welcome to the ENHR 2016 Belfast Conference Website

Dear Colleague,

I am delighted that our bid to host The European Network for Housing Research Conference has been successful and the conference will be held in Belfast on the 28th June to the 1st July 2016.

Our combined approach attracted overwhelming support from politicians, academics and other community bodies throughout Northern Ireland and the Republic. We’ve been immensely encouraged by the enthusiasm of our members and the wider community for our determination to bring this Conference to Belfast.

We are certain that delegates will experience the strength of this enthusiasm, by a community united and focused on ensuring they find their visit inspirational and enjoyable.

This strength of commitment is at all levels and will ensure a really memorable Conference for all those who attend its proceedings.

The theme of this conference will be: ‘Governance, Territory and Housing’.

We have created a vastly experienced and highly professional team who will us in planning and hosting the ENHR Conference. This team includes our conference organiser, Visit Belfast, local and national government, representatives from universities right through to our tourism and hospitality industry representatives to ensure the success of this tremendously important event. You’ll be working with the very best of ‘Team Belfast’ in 2016.

Our commitment to the European Network for Housing Research is to ensure that it will be the best and most enjoyable ever in the organisation’s history.

Belfast has changed dramatically over the past two decades. Huge investment by both private companies and public sector organisations has created a modern city with facilities on a par with the best anywhere in the world. Our convention facilities, hotels, restaurants and visitor attractions are world class. We have a fascinating and colourful history particularly in terms of commercial and industrial innovation.

Northern Ireland is progressive, motivated and hungry to exchange knowledge and experience with the world. Hosting this conference, will be a massive boost for Belfast, the wider Northern Ireland community, the island of Ireland and its future development. It will be recognition our position in the global community and encourage our people to strengthen further international relationships.

Prof Paddy Gray
