The NABMA January Conference received the news that the best Market Attraction 2017 is St. George’s Market, Belfast. The judges commented that “This is the significant NABMA Award and is given to an iconic long standing Market. The Market is fully occupied, demands a presence within its City Centre and is even used by Film Companies. It is a Market of variety and quality but also goes out on tour promoting the Market, its City and its traders. It has a huge social media presence that is managed by the traders themselves and the Market offers an extensive annual calendar of events that promote the Market, local food and crafts and the City.
This is a Market for others to learn from, and aspire towards, and really is a benchmark for excellence in providing a destination Market.
