International media from Italy, Germany, Spain, the USA and Great Britain joined Tourism NI in Belfast to get an exclusive behind scenes preview of Titanic Belfast before it reopens to the public on Saturday 4th March.

The £4.5m investment brings a new original maritime heritage collection and exciting immersive technology to the world’s biggest Titanic experience and more reasons to visit Belfast.  As one of Tourism NI’s 2012 Signature Projects, Titanic Belfast has become one of the world’s leading attractions and has welcomed over 8 million visitors.

The journalists represented titles including the LA Times, Donna Moderna, Rheinische Post, Daily Express, Daily Mirror, EFE News Agency and La Republicca. Organised in association with Tourism Ireland, the three day programme has been developed to promote the unveiling of the new galleries as well as the wider martime and city offering to key visitor markets.
