Glasgow is one of the world’s leading conference destinations and, today, business tourism contributes significantly to the city’s economy.

Glasgow Convention Bureau is the city’s primary point of contact for conference organisers, working with partners on more than 100 bids for major UK and international conferences each year.

A key component of Glasgow’s success is the growing strength of the city’s Conference Ambassador Programme. Managed by Glasgow Convention Bureau, it supports in excess of 1,700 influential active ambassadors – drawn from the city’s academic, scientific, medical and business communities – enabling them to persuade their own sectors and associations to host a conference in Glasgow. 

The Scottish Event (SEC) is an important asset, core to Glasgow’s success in attracting and staging conferences and major events. To build the city’s capacity and enable further growth, investment plans for the SEC are essential to maintain our competitiveness.
