Event Communications is creating the exhibition, after winning a competitive pitch tendered by the Northern Ireland Tourist Board.

Belfast was where the Titanic was built, and Event Communications plans to take visitors on "a journey" beginning in a gallery exploring Belfast. Visitors will then be taken up through the building, passing a huge propeller to a six-minute audio-visual ride showcasing the creation of the vessel.

A "flying theatre" will finish the visitor experience, featuring cutting-edge moving seats suspending visitors over a cinema screen.

The attraction, currently called the Titanic/Maritime Heritage Signature Project exhibition is to be set within a £97m Eric Kuhne & Associates-designed landmark in Belfast's docklands.
