This year’s transatlantic conference will be hosted virtually from the historic Guildhall in Derry featuring a range of speakers and delegates from the US and Ireland who will discuss issues including COVID and Brexit. The Golden Bridges Conference will give the US audience a unique insight into how those living and working in the border region of Derry, Strabane and Donegal are collaborating to prepare for Brexit.
