Scotland is the UK’s fastest growing digital economy outside London with Glasgow fast becoming a global digital technology hub. 

It is home to a thriving range of digital tech sectors including fin-tech, e-commerce, enterprise software and space technology.

According to Tech Nation 2017, Glasgow has £591 million Digital GVA and an 81% tech sector growth potential.  Scotland’s first city Innovation District will be located in Glasgow’s city centre, bringing business, academia and government together to enhance its health, life sciences and engineering sectors using digital technology.

Glasgow’s universities, and the University of Strathclyde in particular, provide a rich seam of talent. Strathclyde has formed more than 50 spinout companies with annual sales of £80 million.

The Digital Media Industries are a priority sector for Glasgow, from television and radio broadcasting to publishing, music publishing, games and learning technologies.

A stone’s throw from the Scottish Event Campus is Pacific Quay – Glasgow’s Digital Media Quarter.  It is home to BBC Scotland, which features the most advanced broadcasting centre in Europe, Scottish Television, Glasgow Science Centre, Galaxy FM and Film City Glasgow.

In 2022, BBC Studioworks opened a new purpose-built studio, in the heart of Glasgow’s West End in the iconic Kelvin Hall. Co-funded by the Scottish Government, through Screen Scotland and Glasgow City Council, the facility is a major boost to Scotland’s capacity to produce multi-genre TV productions and fuels the growth of Scotland’s creative workforce.
