30th Anniversary

Glasgow Convention Bureau is proud to be celebrating 30 years of the Conference Ambassador Programme

Glasgow’s Conference Ambassador Programme was founded in 1990 as the first of its kind in the UK.

The unique programme is a free support and advice service, managed by Glasgow Convention Bureau, aimed at supporting local academics, scientists, healthcare professionals and business people through the complex process of bringing a conference to Glasgow.

As the Programme celebrates its milestone 30th anniversary this year, new figures show how valuable it continues to be.

With over 1,600 members today, some 141 conferences – representing 35% of all meetings held in Glasgow in 2019 – were led by a local conference ambassador.

If you haven’t worked with us before and you are thinking about inviting your academic conference to the city, please get in touch with us via [email protected].

Further information on the free support available can also be found on our 'how we can support you' webpage.
