In recognition of its expertise in the Retail, Food & Hospitality sector, DWF Belfast has, for the first time, sponsored Tourism NI’s Northern Ireland Tourism Awards (NITA).
With clients in the sector including James St South, Premier Inn, Shortcross Gin and Bachus Inns, Julie Galbraith Head of Retail, Food & Hospitality, DWF Belfast, commented on the company’s sponsorship of the ‘Food & Drink Experience of the Year’ category,
“We are extremely proud to sponsor NITA, especially in its 40th year. Formerly C&H Jefferson, DWF Belfast has a long-standing history in Northern Ireland, which is why our support of the tourism sector is so fitting. It is a vital part of the Northern Ireland economy and to see its significant growth over the past 40 years is fantastic.”

Julie added, “Huge congratulations to the finalists Walled City Brewery & Balloo Inns Limited – The Parson’s Nose, and to category winner Derry City & Strabane District Council – Slow Food Festival. The team and I were delighted to attend the awards and celebrate the very best of local tourism.”
