A vibrant and cosmopolitan European destination, Glasgow is one of the first cities to re-invent itself for modern-day business. The city has world-class attractions, unique and distinct neighborhoods, a great shopping culture, and an impressive gastronomic scene. Its exciting growth has been built upon a massive investment in the convention and conferencing industry. The magnificent and ever-improving Scottish Event Campus (SEC) is proof of that. Located just outside the city center, SEC offers 22,500 square meters of exhibition space across five halls. The conference venue has three auditoria, namely the SSE Hydro, the SEC Armadillo, and the Lomond Auditorium, which can seat up to 12,000, 3,000, and 624 people, respectively.
Getting to Glasgow is easy, as the city is served by three international airports, and is well connected by train from across the UK. It can further be accessed via Scotland's extensive road network as well as by sea using ferry connections. The city is also very easy to get around. No matter where the event venue is located, guests can rest assured they'll have no trouble navigating the streets of Glasgow.
Glasgow's popular event venues include the Hilton Glasgow Grosvenor, which has function rooms available for up to 450 attendees; Glasgow Marriott Hotel, which has 18,396 square feet of total meeting space; and Radisson BLU Hotel Glasgow, where you can hold an event for up to 800 people in one of the 15 dedicated meeting rooms. The Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, located in the west of the city, is another top MICE venue that offers a perfect setting for award ceremonies, standing receptions, gala dinners, and product launches. Its Centre Hall can seat up to 500 dining guests and up to 1,000 people for a drinks reception, while its Kg Café can accommodate up to 150 guests for a standing reception.
