The Vespa World Days (VWD) is an event that is hosted each year by a different Country - this year was Celle in Germany, 2016 was in St Tropez, France, then Croatia in 2015, Italy in 2014, and 2013 was Belgium of which the stakes were set very high for future events. So in 2018 the Vespa Club of Britain has been asked to host this event.
The Titanic venue does not leave anything else to be desired as this is the Museum of Britain's heritage in the Maritime Industry and the famous ship "The Titanic" that sunk in April 1912.
The Vespa Village will be set up within the exact area that the Titanic was built which will include various dealerships from around the UK and Europe, Market Vendors, a mechanical area for help with breakdowns, local products, food and produce, entertainment throughout the day and night, and the famous Gala Dinner on the Saturday night for 2,500 Vespisti from around the world.
The opening ceremony will be held on the Thursday night with all the countries from all over the world attending, and then a party afterwards to celebrate this great event.
Each day there will be Tours and Visits arranged at various tourist attractions and each night there will be parties and bands on in the Vespa village. The Saturday Gala meal will be set in the Titanic exhibition centre across the road from the Titanic Centre, and will hold the 2,500 diners with relative ease, which will then follow with Bands and entertainment for the rest of the night.
Belfast itself is now a bustling, vibrant area which comes to life at night-times with restaurants and bars welcoming visitors local and from around the world and is only a short walkable distance from the Vespa Village.
