Sensata Technologies to sponsor Belfast Mela Festival

  • Northern Ireland’s biggest celebration of cultural diversity, the Belfast Mela Festival will be sponsored by Sensata Technologies this year.

    There are more than 40 events planned across the city. Starting with the Mela Carnival Parade on Saturday 20 August the festival will run right through to Sunday 28 August when the traditional Mela Day returns to Botanic Gardens after a break of two years due to the pandemic.

    Speaking about the sponsorship, Adriana Morvaiova, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Specialist for Sensata Technologies, said: “The ethos of this festival aligns well with our diversity goals and how we want to work: learning from each other, celebrating each other, being open to diverse perspectives and always innovating. It’s great to see the festival continuing with an eight-day format with lots of events for all the family culminating in the return to Botanic Gardens on the last Sunday in August.”
