We are delighted to bring two more prestigious awards home to Belfast. Winning All Ireland Manager of the Year was a great personal achievement and winning Marketing Manager of the year gives me great pride, however it is a truer reflection of the amazing team effort in Victoria Square. The entire 2,500 strong team at Victoria Square continually strive to deliver a world class experience for all of our customers and winning awards is recognition that Victoria Square competes at a national level.”
