Connecting Business – Growing Opportunities

Causeway Launch in Northern Ireland




We are delighted to invite all Causeway members and invited guests to join us for our launch in Northern Ireland at the magnificent Belfast City Hall.

Causeway fosters closer economic ties across Scotland, the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, by providing a high level forum for businesses to build relationships and expand their networks.

At this launch Causeway will explain the benefits of membership to Northern Ireland’s thriving business community and establish a programme of activity to sit alongside that taking place in Scotland and the Republic of Ireland.

Speakers include:

Eugene Mullan, Director of Causeway and Owner of Smith Scott Mullan Architects, Edinburgh

Councillor Donal Lyons, Chair of the City Growth and Regeneration Committee, Belfast City Council

Peter Browne Senior Business Development Manager The McAvoy Group

Thanks to our main sponsor for the night, Belfast City Council.

Followed by a networking reception, with thanks to our Sponsors:

Dress Code: Business Attire

Entrance will be from the courtyard at the rear due to the presence of the Christmas market at the front of the City Hall.

We look forward to welcoming you on the evening.
