Sign up to attend the ADS NI Annual BBQ, kindly sponsored this year by Nitronica. We will have a lovely networking afternoon at the Titanic Distillers, Thompson Dock, Belfast. Based in the historic Titanic Pump House, attendees are free to explore the distillery and the historic dry dock. The event will allow you to meet other like-minded individuals within the industry in an informal relaxing environment, whilst enjoying the BBQ and a glass of wine, cold beer or soft drinks provided.

Northern Ireland has a historical legacy of great innovation in aerospace and defence, which dates back more than 100 years.

The Northern Ireland Partnering for Growth Strategy was launched in 2014 with 10-year growth ambitions to double the size of our sectors from £1bn to £2bn. The 2024 report confirms that target has been exceeded: annual revenue for the sectors at the end of 2023 was £2.2bn. 

The key to success of this growth strategy has been industry, government and the trade body working together. In celebration of this fantactic achievement, the theme for this year's event will be "Partnering for Growth - Past, Present, Future".
