It’s easy to see why Glasgow is considered a world class location for conferences, meetings and events.
The fourth largest city in Europe and the largest city in Scotland, Glasgow is a favourite choice with meeting planners because it caters for every requirement. A former European City of Culture and UK City of Architecture, Glasgow’s variety of meeting spaces range from historic venues to exhibition centres, banqueting suites totraining centres and riversidehotels to rural country houses.
Glasgow’s international airport makes the city an easy to reach meeting destination for the international traveller, whilst motorway links via the M8 and M74 make it easily accessible to UK conference delegates. The intercity rail network also connects Glasgow to all major UK cities, with a sleeper service also available from London.
Steeped in history from its ship-building and merchant heritage, Glasgow’s architecture is renowned worldwide providing a host of unique conference venues. If you’re looking for historic venues, look no further than the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and the Burrell Collection . However, if you’re looking for cutting edge technology, the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre is the ideal venue being the UK’s largest integrated exhibition and conference centre. For a sporting venue try the Hampden Park National Stadium which can cater for small boardroom meetings or large conferences for up to 600 delegates. City hotels such as the Grand Central offer style and grandeur, whereas the Mint Hotel Glasgow offers an array of hi-tech meeting rooms and conference facilities. With Loch Lomond and championship golf courses Royal Troon and Turnberry less than an hour from the city, why not treat delegates to a stay at The Westerwood Hotel and Golf Resort, a stately house with all mod cons. A rural venue with a banqueting suite and numerous recently refurbished meeting and training rooms, it is also the ideal setting for teambuilding events.
