First Minister the Rt Hon. Peter D. Robinson MLA tonight welcomed the arrival of the Game of Thrones Exhibition to the Waterfront Hall, Belfast. The First Minister met members of the Game of Thrones cast and crew, local, national and international media. Welcoming the exhibition to Northern Ireland for a second time, the First Minister Peter Robinson said: “It is tremendous news that Belfast has secured the Game of Thrones Exhibition for a second time. “In 2013 the exhibition attracted more than 18,000 visitors to Northern Ireland from all over the world over 10 days and I am confident that it will easily exceed that number this time. Quite simply Game of Thrones is an amazing show made in spectacular locations across Northern Ireland. “Its incredible success, its vast size and scale, coupled with Northern Ireland’s expertise and input to the series, is sending out a very strong message about our capabilities in the film and TV industries. Not only does it further cement Northern Ireland’s commitment to our expanding creative industries sector, it also reinforces our reputation as a world-class location for film and TV production, bringing £80million to our economy in terms of direct spend and job creation. “I commend all those involved in the production of Game of Thrones which is broadcast in more than 70 countries across the globe and is one HBO’s most successful shows ever made.”
