Workshops & Events
The latest workshops and training events from Glasgow Welcomes.
In 2018 Glasgow welcomed over 120,000 conference delegates from around the world to the city, and 7,000 delegates attended three prestigious meetings this year: World Federation of Haemophilia event in May, World Down’s Syndrome Congress in July and 29th International Symposium on ALS/Motor Neurone Disease in December.
Glasgow Welcomes partnered with the Glasgow Convention Bureau, VisitScotland and the SEC to offer free and bespoke awareness training sessions as preparation for tourism/hospitality businesses welcoming delegates to the city. The sessions were delivered by trainers from each association, and informed on how best to give a warm Scottish and Glaswegian welcome to the delegates, by understanding their requirements.
