The timely Brexit conference took place in March just a day after the triggering of Article 50.  The conference, which was supported by Deloitte, was attended by delegates from both the public and private sectors keen to hear experts in a wide range of industries talk about the United Kingdom leaving the European Union.  The panel discussed in detail how leaving the single market and custom union may affect Northern Ireland, and the implications a complete break from the current system will have.
