Delegates make Glasgow greener as sustainability conference boosts city’s economy by nearly £1m

Glasgow’s economy has received a near £1m boost from hosting the 27th International Input-Output Association Conference (IIOA).

Drawing to a close at the University of Strathclyde’s Technology and Innovation Centre today (Friday, July 5th), the week-long meeting – which is taking place in the UK for the first time – has attracted a record number of delegates from nearly 50 countries.

The IIOA conference is focused on the advancement of knowledge in the field of data compilation and economic statistics and its use across a wide variety of sectors. A key theme of this year’s meeting is sustainability and minimising the environmental impact of conferences on their host destination.

Glasgow has aspirations to become one of Europe’s most sustainable business tourism cities and is currently the only UK city to be included in the Global Destination Sustainability Index. Glasgow is ranked 7th of 35 leading international conference destinations alongside the likes of Houston, Sydney, Kyoto, Barcelona, Geneva, Helsinki, Stockholm and Frankfurt.
