Connect with us at the BCO One Day Conference in Belfast, 22nd September

Chapman Taylor delegates will be attending the next BCO Conference, taking place at PWC’s BCO Regional Award-Winning Offices at Merchant Place in Belfast City Centre.

Belfast will provide the perfect setting for the office community to network and debate the nature of the workplace in a national and regional context. Attending from Chapman Taylor will be Directors Mark Doughty and Gavin King, Associate Director Daniel Morgans and Senior interior designer Michaela O’Hare. Do please get in touch with them directly to connect at the event.

Belfast is a city full of ambition, optimism, and above all, energy. It is a modern, compact capital city packed with history and world-class culture. It is one of the youngest cities in Europe with over 40 % of its population aged 30 years or younger and has been recognised as the world’s most business-friendly small city by the FT.

Led by the BCO Northern Committee this One Day Conference will connect leading occupiers, developers and business leaders. Keynote speakers will cover the local market, development, occupation and economics. Later there will be four building tours and an evening drinks reception hosted at the historic Titanic Hotel.
