The application is the next step following a previous feasibility study which was carried to establish viable options for upgrading and expanding the campus, principally to facilitate further growth in the Conference and Exhibition sectors. It was also supported by a robust business plan and economic impact study as the rationale for the new facilities.

The Scottish Event Campus (SEC) comprises SEC Centre, SEC Armadillo and The SSE Hydro.
It is situated in the heart of Glasgow, Scotland’s cultural and commercial capital and is one of the UK’s largest integrated spaces, purpose-built for exhibitions, conferences and live entertainment.
Capable of delivering events for two to well over 10,000, SEC Centre has infinite flexibility and includes main meeting hub, the Loch Suite. Combined with the 3,000 seat SEC Armadillo they offer 22,344m2 of event space.
A truly iconic structure, The SSE Hydro hosts national and international music mega stars as well as global entertainment and sporting events. With a capacity of 13,000, the venue stages around 140 events a year.
In the last financial year, the Campus generated a net additional expenditure of over £1m per day in the Glasgow area equating to a total of £400m. The net additional expenditure in Scotland was measured at £227m and in the UK at £136m.
