Host your conference in a city renowned for its innovation and creativity.

Why Glasgow?


Voted Best UK Convention Bureau for the last 17 years, Glasgow’s experienced conventions team continuously develops its city wide strategic partnerships, world leading Conference Ambassador Programme and bespoke public engagement activities to support UK, European and international clients with hosting a successful and memorable meeting in Glasgow.

Cultural hub & gateway to Scotland 

Glasgow is Scotland’s cultural powerhouse, ranked by the Mercer Cost of Living Survey as one of Europe’s most cost effective cities and the first in the UK to be included in the Global Destination Sustainability Index. With Loch Lomond just 40 mins away, it's the perfect starting point for delegates to discover what Scotland has to offer.

A city brimming with innovation 

In the UK, Glasgow has the largest academic community outside London, with world leading research in life sciences, engineering, science and technology.

With one of the largest medical physics research divisions in the world, Europe’s largest hospital (the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital) and the Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre (BWoSCC), the UK’s most advanced NHS cancer centre, Glasgow offers an ideal location for meetings in the field of medical research.

Don't take our word for it 

Here's a written testimonial from our client Karin Burger, Conference Manager, SPIE The International Society for Optics + Photonics:

“From early on, the city of Glasgow realised that an international event works much better if all partners in a city pull in the same direction. Returning to the city after a number of years, I can see that these relationships have been built on and expanded and now provide an extraordinary network of support. You should try it for yourself!”
