The black tie dinner is being hosted by Secretary of State Theresa Villiers ahead of tomorrow’s investment conference at Titanic Belfast.

Around 120 delegates from the USA, Canada and China have arrived in Northern Ireland with the prospect of bringing jobs to boost the economy.

The investment conference is being hosted by First Minister Peter Robinson and deputy first minister Martin McGuinness.

On Thursday, the conference was given a boost when US global giant announced that it was creating 260 jobs in a £21.7 million investment in Co Tyrone.

Finance Minister Simon Hamilton said the investment conference was an opportunity for Northern Ireland to “showcasee” its talents.

Prime Minister David Cameron is to make a speech to delegates at Titanic Belfast.

He will also be visiting Bombardier Shorts in east Belfast at which an announcement is expected to be made about a multi-million pound research development being unveiled.
