 “We were blown away by the genuine hospitality of the staff, the sheer beauty of the grounds and surrounding nature, the incredible spa and thermal village and the range of dining and entertainment options available on site. It was an easy choice for us on check-out that this was to be the resort to host our event.”
 Galgorm Resort & Spa are delighted to be partnering with Mid and East Antrim Borough Council to bring this high profile event to the region, which will offer the opportunity to showcase the borough and Northern Ireland as a whole to a discerning international crowd of media, VIP’s and luxury spa & restaurant owners.
 Galgorm Resort & Spa’s General Manager Colin Johnston said:
“2017 was a fantastic year for the Resort in terms of achievements but winning Global Spa of the Year has really enabled us to shine an international spotlight on the Resort and wider region. We were completely blown away to have been announced as the 2018 Host Venue and are extremely excited about having the opportunity to showcase on the global stage the amazing luxury Spas & restaurants we have both here on the Ireland and throughout the UK.
