If you bring your conference to Glasgow you are not only guaranteed a warm welcome, you and your delegates can have a real Scottish experience.
Add some Scottish flair to your conference and discover our traditions, culture and heritage.
No visit to Scotland would be complete without sampling a 'wee dram'. Why not include a whisky tasting session at your conference dinner?
Glengoyne, one of our local distilleries just 30 minutes from the city, can also create a unique blend of whisky for your conference and brand it with your logo. It’s a perfect gift for speakers, and a great souvenir for delegates to buy.
Tartan has been a symbol of Scotland for more than 300 years. You can be part of Scotland’s unique cultural heritage with your own tartan, designed especially for the conference.
It's a great lasting legacy for your association. Bespoke conference tartan gifts can be produced for delegates to buy – such as ties, scarves, cuff-links and sashes.
Whether it's a single piper or a full pipe band, the sound of the bagpipes at your opening ceremony is a great way to make an impact.
Delegates also love having their photo taken with a Scottish piper too.
Why not have your own conference golf tournament?
Scotland is the home of golf with over 600 golf courses. There are over 50 in the Glasgow area, and the championship courses at Turnberry, Loch Lomond and Gleneagles are easy to get to.
Add some energy and Scottish traditions to your social programme by hosting your very own ceilidh. Your delegates will learn some Scottish dances while enjoying traditional music - it's guaranteed to get everyone on the dance floor.
We can introduce you to entertainment companies who provide fantastic ceilidh bands and highland dancers, ideal for creating a memorable Scottish experience for your delegates.
Dine in a castle
Why not dine in a Scottish castle dating back to the 18th century. With such a dramatic setting, your delegates can dine like a King or Queen for the evening and enjoy some Scottish food and drink.
Discover Glasgow, the 'Gateway to Scotland'
Glasgow is Scotland's cultural powerhouse. It is home to five of Scotland's six national performing arts organisations and one of Europe's largest civic arts collections.
Rough Guides described Glasgow as "one of the best places to head for culinary experimentation" and placed Scotland on its list of "must see destinations" for 2017. With Loch Lomond just 40 mins away from the city centre, Glasgow is the perfect starting point for delegates to discover what Scotland has to offer.
