2018 is set to be a very exciting year for Glasgow. The city has recently launched a year long programme of events to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of pioneering Art Nouveau architect, designer and artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
Born in Glasgow on 7 June 1868, Mackintosh went on to be regarded as one of the most creative figures of the 20th century and a leading figure in both the Scottish Arts and Crafts Movement and European Art Nouveau.
Throughout 2018, exhibitions, seminars and tours are taking place across the city to mark the incredible legacy and creative genius of Glasgow’s great cultural icon. If you’re hosting a conference in Glasgow this year, why not check out the full programme of events in case there is something you or your delegates may wish to experience in your free time.
Glasgow is home to the world’s pre-eminent collection of Mackintosh buildings, drawings and designs, which can be discovered across the city as well as at two key attractions in nearby Helensburgh. As such, there is a stunning array of venues across the city which provide a unique backdrop for meetings and events. If you’re planning on making Glasgow your next host city, check out some of our venues which have either been designed by Mackintosh or display some of his greatest work.
