It all takes place at The Fitzwilliam Hotel, Belfast (opening March 2009), one of the hottest new travel destinations. Across from the Opera House at the City Center end of Belfast's Golden Mile, The Fitzwilliam is just a short walk away to an array of cultural spots including City Hall, the Old Museum Arts Centre, Linen Hall Library, and the Crown Liquor Saloon. It is also close to the central shopping area at Royal Avenue, the soon-to-be-opened Victoria Square Complex, and a wide array of restaurants and style bars.

"I had gone to Travel Classics hoping to get a new writer or two, and I have to say that the conference obviously exceeded my expectations. Not only was it a fun and enriching experience to meet face-to-face with other editors and writers, but it has already proved immensely fruitful in terms of content for Men's Journal."
