People Make Glasgow Healthier

Taking the conference beyond the walls of the conference centre

2019 was an important year for medical associations meeting in Glasgow, each with a serious public health message at their heart, and People Make Glasgow Healthier was created. 

The People Make Glasgow Healthier initiative is about championing the beyond tourism benefits that conferences bring to their host destination and amplifying the message or theme of the conference to a public audience, bringing a positive health message to the citizens of Glasgow and leaving a lasting legacy in the city. 

To learn more and view examples of some of the fantastic legacy events that have been held here in the city in 2019 take a look at our People Make Glasgow Healthier Overview.

Glasgow Convention Bureau was awarded a Special Chairmen's Excellence Award by the Association of British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO) for the People Make Glasgow Healthier initiative.
