The Location

InnovationKT-2013 will be hosted by the University of Ulster in Derry/Londonderry, Northern Ireland. Northern Ireland's second city is famous, amongst other things, for its walls, a symbol of the city's rich legacy of history and tradition. The city is a busy and expanding commercial centre which has been experiencing a sustained period of growth and regeneration; a process in which the University has played an important part.

The conference will be held at the excellent City Hotel Derry. The hotel enjoys one of the most idyllic locations; perched on the banks of the River Foyle within 5 minutes walking distance of the historic Derry Walls. Derry is situated on the threshold of County Donegal, which is rightly famous for its wild and open beauty.
