Did you know?

Belfast has a rich history of building and was at one point considered the industrial hub of the 1800s 

Up until 2023, NASC held zero membership in Northern Ireland. This number is slowly climbing now and by launching our brand new flagship event to the region, this is going to help give NASC and its members more presence going forward and help drive more membership.
