Belfast Summit 2024 welcomes keynote speaker Professor Carlos Moreno – the creator of the 15-minute city concept – to first-of-its kind event focussing on the challenges and opportunities faced by the region’s leading city.

Supported by the city’s Business Improvement Districts Belfast One, Destination CQ, and Linen Quarter BID along with Ulster University and MW Advocate, the Belfast Summit 2024 will welcome Franco-Columbian urban planning expert Professor Carlos Moreno on his first visit to Northern Ireland. Carlos, who is a Professor at the University of Pantheon-Sorbonne, has achieved global recognition for his pioneering vision around the 15-minute city – a concept that would see everyday amenities all within a 15-minute walk or cycle from home.

The Belfast Summit, which will take place on the 15th February, will hear from leaders in business, hospitality, housing, and education, each of whom will lay out their vision for the city and how it can thrive.
