The British Titanic Society is pleased to announce that the 2024 Annual Convention will be held in Belfast, from Friday April 12th to Monday April 15th 2024.

This will give members the opportunity for adding an extra day to their stay if they choose to, so that they can attend The Lord Mayors Reception, on Monday, to which the Society has been invited, marking the start of the annual Belfast Titanic Festival.

The Convention programme will include lectures by prominent Titanic historian, and visits to local Titanic and maritime historical places of interest, as well as our ever popular Gala Dinner.

In conjunction with Titanic Belfast Hotel we have negotiated a great value hotel package for members and their guests, and we are looking forward to you joining us and sharing our common passion for one of the greatest White Star Liners in history.
