MII Annual Conference 2024: All Roads Lead North

Visit Belfast
6 March 2024

The annual conference will take place at the Hilton Hotel, Belfast, on Friday 18th and Saturday 19th October – bigger than last year, full of practical lessons and learning points, and relevant to all mediators, regardless of your specialist sector.  

This will be the first time in the MII’s history that we will have held the annual conference in Northern Ireland, the scene of much conflict and resolution over the past 50+ years.
All of our speakers have been asked to share insights that will be of value to mediators, so that delegates will gain knowledge from every session. The Hilton Hotel is located 5 minutes’ walk from the terminal for the Enterprise train from Dublin and we have a number of discounted hotel rooms available for members who wish to stay over for the conference dinner and awards ceremony (or spend a few days in Belfast).
We’re currently finalising sessions and speakers, and we can let you know that some of the topics will include: 

The Psychology of Revenge

The Role of Mediators in Conflict Zones Parts 1 & 2

Psychologically Informed Mediation: Studies in Conflict and Resolution

Keeping the EI in AI Parts 1& 2

Risk Assessments for Mediators

And there will be more – much more  – that we can’t tell you about just yet.

However, in addition to great networking and exciting updates on MII achievements over the year, we’re being supported by Visit Belfast, so watch out for additional events throughout the year and the chance to take part in organised tours around Belfast if you are able to get there in the days before the conference.
The full programme and early bird discounts for members will be out soon. Make sure you save the dates in your diary!
