Belfast City Council has secured the funding for a major extension of the Waterfront Hall.
The project will cost £29.5m: the council is putting up £11m, the European Regional Development Fund is giving £14.5m and the remaining £4m will come from the tourist board.
Work on the scheme is expected to begin by the summer with construction completed by December 2015.
The extension will house a conference and exhibition centre.
The new centre will allow the Waterfront to compete for larger conferences.
