In 2018 Glasgow will welcome over 120,000 conference delegates from around the world to the city.

7,000 delegates will be attending three prestigious meetings this year: World Federation of Haemophilia in May, World Down’s Syndrome in July and Motor Neurone Disease in December.

As around 10% of delegates who will be attending these conferences are living with the condition under discussion, Glasgow Welcomes has partnered with the Glasgow Convention Bureau, VisitScotland and the SEC to inform on how best to give a warm Scottish and Glaswegian welcome to the delegates, by understanding their requirements.   Awareness sessions have been delivered by trainers from each association, and we're delighted to share the fact sheets.
