About this venue

Built in 1990 for Glasgow’s reign as European City of Culture, the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall sits in an iconic position at the top of Buchanan Street right in the heart of the city’s bustling shopping district. Home to the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, the Concert Hall is a multi-purpose venue, presenting a varied programme of music and cultural events as well as hosting exhibitions, conferences and meetings.

With many different rooms and breakout areas available, the complex can accommodate meetings and conferences from 12 - 2000 delegates.

The Main Auditorium seats up to 2000 delegates. It is an excellent venue for large scale conferences, with all delegates benefiting from good vantage points to the stage. 

The Strathclyde Suite can host a conference for up to 400 delegates theatre style.  As a self-contained room with flexible seating this is a highly sought after space able to host theatre and cabaret style and classroom layouts for examinations.  In addition, this room can also accommodate layouts suitable for shell-scheme exhibitions. 

The Exhibition Hall is a self-contained square room ideal for hosting a conference for up to 300 delegates. The hall has no fixed staging, allowing you to customise the layout to suit your needs. 

The Lomond and Clyde Foyers, Strathclyde and Island Bars are areas within the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall which can be used as breakout areas for larger conferences or independently for conferences and meetings on a smaller scale. 

The VIP Room is a smaller, self-contained rectangular room ideal for boardroom meetings for up to 12 people. In addition it can also host meetings with a theatre style layout for up to 30 delegates. 

The award winning City of Music Studio can be used as a location for a smaller scale conference.  Benefiting from a stunning view down Glasgow’s Buchanan Street, flexible seating options make the City of Music Studio suitable for small lectures, boardroom meetings and formal banquets. 

The Buchanan Suite is a self-contained rectangular room, seating up to 100 theatre style or 50 cabaret style.  The suite benefits from natural daylight by way of a concave panoramic window along the wall, overlooking the City of Music Studio which itself looks down onto an iconic view of Buchanan Street.
